COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a rich, robust porter, cleverly crafted to integrate the aromas and flavors of espresso coffee malt and bitter-sweet chocolate malt. Inspired by owner Brendan Moylans’ daughter Chelsea, this is an American-Irish Style Porter that dark beer drinkers will love

Bottle from Bellingers, Jet Garage, Grove, Nr Wantage, Oxon, consumed 10.12.10 Pours dark brown with a beige head. This is a little dry with some sweetness intertwined with a fairly safe roastiness, a little cofffee and dark chocolate and gentle sour fruity twang. Ok A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

22oz bomber from Spec’s. Pours a dark brown body with a bubbly, lasting tannish head. Aromas of roasted malts and an odd vinous offering. Sort of lacto sourness? Flavor has that lacto sour up front and then has some bittersweet chocolate, roastiness and day old coffee coming through. Medium mouthfeel. I suspect a poorly handled/stored bottle. However, having purchased a tremendous amount of beer from this Spec’s location, I sort of doubt it. I’ll try another, from another store and re-rate in the future.

Bottle 22fl.oz.

Clear dark brown color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, coffee, toffee, butter, tobacco notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter with a long duration, cold coffee. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20101119]

Dedollewaitor (13769) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle @ Friday Night Ulfborg Thing. Thanks to J&C. Pours dark brown nearly black with a small creamy beige head and lacings. Nose is heavy toffee and caramel. Flavor has again . .toffee and also a bit of roasted coffee and mocha notes. Medium and smooth palate. Could get cloying if I were to drink a whole bottle by myself.

RichardGretton (4229) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. Virtually a black beer with a strong light brown head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour is roasted with a vinous, malty and bitter flavour. Overall a reasonable strongly roasted porter.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bomber from Sixteen Tons. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head and a little bit of lacing. Smells of nuts, roast, coffee, nice chocolate note. Tastes of caramel, chocolate, roast and coffee, very dry finish. Tasty brew.

Bottle, BoE. Very impressed with this. A chocolatey porter, with loads of flavour and character. Easy drinking, plenty of body.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bomber. Poured cola brown with a nice-lookin’ cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter, milky chocolates with burnt coffee laced through it.. fresh hops didn’t provide any distinct character, but complemented well. The flavor found more of the coffee, both at the malty core and as bitterness on the edges.. smoky char right on the back.. this transitioned well through the mouth. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. light, but prickly carbonation.. a few too many residual sugars.. overall a very drinkable and tasty brew.
