Una birra scura e complessa. Si apre in bocca con un importante tostato poi evolve in cioccolato e leggero fruttato. Bella pienezza e finale lungo. La carbonazione č forse eccessiva e non lascia una bella sensazione.

Not usually a porter fan but this is really good. Chocolate, coffee, not too heavy. Nice deep dark porter with good lacing.

Bottle at Chriso going Dutch tasting, acquired from Callans in Dundalk 03/07/14. Dark mahogany brown with a moderate light tan head that thins to a swirl and edgeing. Nose is light roast, earthy cocoa, toffee, light spice. Taste comprises earthy cocoa powder, brown bread notes, light roast, mineral pangs, faint hoppy backnotes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light roast finale with a drying element. Ok porter.

Craig on Heat Tasting at ChrisO’s. Hazy deep red - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy, mild fine carbonation. Airy malts, very mild dark character, trace of tangy coffee. Light dry and bitter finish. A bit dull but inoffensive.
