Barwa ciemno brunatna do czarnej, średnio wysoka, zbita piana. W aromacie mleczna czekolada, kawa. Oleista tekstura, w smaku podobnie jak w aromacie, na finiszu popiół. Ogólnie całkiem niezłe.

On tap @Salt House in Galway, pours dark brown with a thin off-white head. Sweet aroma of roasted coffee and malts. Taste similar, roasted malts, initially sweet but finishes bitter. Medium body with light carbonation.

MrTipple (3710) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Toasted malts, milky americano coffee, dark chocolate, dry cacao. Hazy, very dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Toasted malts, some light coffee, light sweet grain malts, dark bread, soft carbonation, lightly bitter in the finish. Nice Porter, would love to try this on cask as its too fizzy for me. Keg at The Black Sheep, Dublin.

Bottle from Dicey Reilly in Ballyshannon. Appearance - dark brown to black with red chinks. Nose - toffee and chocolate. Fruitcake. Taste - toffee, molasses and liquorice. Crunchie Bar. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy rich texture that follows through the finish. Overall - a nice complex porter.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Roasty malts and their chocolate accents move into minty hops and their bitterness in this satisfying Porter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the brown-hued black.
-Maltiness lasts for quite a while, which I appreciate.
-Molasses are found under the roast.
-Charred meat notes are found as well.

On tap at The Beer Market, Dublin.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2016 Zwart of erg donker bruin. Ruikt rokerig. Smaakt ook zo. Prima porter, maar niet bijzonder. Rerate van de tap: geur en smaak 1 puntje omhoog.

toscanoigor (111) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - MAY 28, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2016 Cerveja escura, marrom, quase preta, com espuma bege de média duração. Aroma de café e chocolate. O sabor acompanha o aroma, mas muito mais intensamente e com mais complexidade, adicionando notas frutadas. Final amargo, na medida certa. Ótima porter, refrescante.

MrBishop (45) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2016 Keg at The Beer Market Dublin. Fine looking and tasting stout. Hints of chocolate and coffee. Very drinkable.

blackandwhite (13) - Dublin 2, IRELAND - MAY 13, 2016
Pour a a dark chocolate black with a nice head which fades quickly. Nice malty taste with a slight citrus kick from the hops. One of the best Irish porters out there.
