In the winter of 1996 we were inspired by an Irish tradition for a morning after ícorpse-reviverí - a splash of Port in your stout! The inspired blending of Rich Ruby Port with OíHanlonís award-winning stout has created a unique and original masterpiece of craft brewing.

Towey1989 (250) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Deep ruby brown colour with a creamy tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, treacle and dark fruits. Tastes of dark fruit and roasted coffee plus the warming flavour of port. Texture is smooth but a little watery. A dry, roasted finish. Overall a decent stout.

SlackerMads (1896) - DENMARK - JAN 24, 2015
Cask. Dark chestnut brown with a small tan head. Watery at first with some brown sugar notes dominating. Molasses and dark dried fruit. Soft carbonation, little bitterness, soft malty finish. I feel it is a bit too thin to really carry the flavours.

martinrumsam (562) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2014
Black with thick tan lasting head good aroma with some coffee and chocolate hints Some initial sweetness in the taste which may come from the port then a nice roasty coffee bitterness develops. Some lingering warmth at the finish - oddly for a modest abv. Maybe it is the port found it a bit watery but decent.
