Cask@SBWF2007. Colour is dark rubyish red with longlasting beige head. Aroma is mild roastyness along with cocoa and wood. Flavour is pretty much the same. Reminds quite a lot of a mild ale in my opinion...

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nitro keg at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Dark brown color; creamy head (of course). Light aroma, some watery roasted malt flavor, mild, but probably affected by the nitro; there is some dark chocolate malt at the end. Not bad, but without the nitro would be better...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught@brew pub, Dublin.
Opaque black, good creamy tanned chocolaty head. Nice intensive nose of cold coffee and chocolate. Aroma is better than beer’s flavor itself. Roasted coffee beans are there but body watery, lighter than you could expect from good nose. Anyway balanced porter and the best of Messrs maguire’s current brews.
