Masses of chocolate malt creates a full-bodied, palate-coating beer that is rich and smooth. Notes of chocolate, tobacco and espresso, it’s smoky, toasty and tasty!

On draught at Sweetmans. No notes, from memory. Dark, almost black, creamy off white head, great lacing. Coffee nose, lots of burnt malt. Flavour is liquorice, coffee, dark chocolate, burnt malt and a little smoke. Big body but not overly heavy. More roast malt in the finish. Very good.

Shared with Northropfrye at brewpub in Dublin. There’s notes of coffee here, but I really like the sweetness in this porter. I liked it.

Dark black with off white head, nice lacing. Roasty tasting, with a touch of sweetness, aroma is more pronounced than the flavour.

On tap in the brewpub. Poured jet black with small white head. Sweet mocha smell and rich sweet chocolate and coffee flavour. One of the best porters in ireland in my opinion

Keg at JWS. Near black pour, thin white head. Loads of light chocolate in the aroma, some coffee, burnt sugar, light liquorice. Taste gives a surprising amount of molasses - nice - alongside fairly rich chocolate and a bit of coffee. Lingering chocolate and molasses. Medium mouthfeel - on the light side actually. Really really drinkable. A proper sessionable porter - good stuff.

garthicus (2658) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Appearance: pitch oily black, thick mocha brown head. Aroma: Malty with underlying dark chocolate & espresso. Flavour: Very light mouthfeel initially, makes way to a rich chocolate, lots of espresso, smokey , in fact almost a fresh tobacco flavour, very rich and flavoursome, delicious spice and coffee finish. Quite lovely indeed.

The head is great, the body black. It smells coffee, a bit bit chocolate, roasty, nice! The taste is intensive coffee, chocolate, hoppy, intensive roasty, nice intensive Porter. One of the best Porters I had! Great. 15/13/13/13/-/13
