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

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.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Deep dark brown with a red tint and a lasting creamy frothy beige head. Smells of burnt malt, chocolate, coffee, dried fruit, caramel and sweet malt. Medium frothy oily body with no carbonation. Mellow rounded roast, with burn malt with dark chocolate, dried fruit and a nice bitter coffee roast finish. The finish has a slight metallic finish. A nice smooth stout with a roast finish and a dry nice decent character.

teorn88 (6446) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Keg at The Rake. Dark brown to black with a thick two inch head. Aroma is toffee, burnt toast, caramel, coffee, I could sniff this for hours. The taste is nice, much of the same from the nose of the beer, thick, rich with different flavours coming and going as the beer warmed. Quite good

Erzengel (7755) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2013
Rating from 2008: Der Schaum ist schön rötlich-braun, der Geruch voll und süß mit Rotweinanklängen. Der Antrunk ist cremig-süßlich-vollmundig. Der Hauptteil wird malzig-interessant: Röstmalz und eine interessante, schwer zu beschreibende Note - aber irgendwie kein Portwein. Leicht ins süßlich-dunkel gehende. Schwer. Der Nachgeschmack ist langanhaltend - hefig-mild und röstmalzig-intensiv.
Gut abgewogenes Herbe-Süße-Verhältnis. Interessantes, aber auch sehr leckeres Bier! --> 13+10+13+13 = 12,40

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2013
(Cask): Black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate. Flavour is roasted malt, milky coffee, chocolate. A bit watery and don’t detect any port flavours which is unfortunate as it’d have fitted well.
