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

Patersoi (146) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2015
Pours nice deep brown with clingy cream head. Aroma of mocha and vanilla. Then the taste hints of choc and coffee but a funky floral fruitiness that detracts from the essense of a porter. Some malt sweetness returns at the finish but the florally fruitiness never goes away

fuzzcro (199) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2015
The coffee/chocolate flavors are very subtle...I even get a bit if a sour taste. It’s a nice looking porter though seems a bit watered.

Kosmokrator (813) - ITALY - NOV 27, 2015
Porter piuttosto classica, caffettosa e tostata come atteso, con una parvenza lattiginosa al palato che non guasta... se fosse una Stout ricorderebbe una Oatmeal.

Sigmund (6380) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2015
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Black colour, large beige head. Roasty aroma, notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Fairly light bodied. Medium dry roasty flavour, notes of espresso coffee, a slight acidity and dark bitter chocolate, also noticeable bittering hops. A decent porter for its strength.
