3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Nose is bitter and chocolatey with a touch of meaty smoke which works nicely. As it warms liquorice comes through. Taste is more of the smoked malts and bittering chocolate. Aniseed adds a nice touch. Nice stuff. Kind of like a better Guinness

Keg @ J W Sweetmans, Dublin 
Dark brown, ruby edges, thin tan head, good lacing
Aroma - Caramel malt, chocolate, well I’m getting tobacco because of the tasting notes given, dark fruit malts, smooth roast
Taste - Caramel, some soft spicy hops, chocolate, dark fruits, tobacco(!), quite complex, touch of smoke, very nice
Palate - Soft carb, thin to medium body. Finish as main flavour
Overall - Nice porter, some dark fruits in there, perhaps a little thin though

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.

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

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
