COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & bottle conditioned; Regular.
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.

RichardGretton (4365) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2003
Dark strong looking stout with a more alcoholic rather than roasted aroma. Very bitter and dry flavour with less hint of the port element. Overall a very good stout with a slight difference with the inclusion of port.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Very dark with only a hint of chestnut through the light. initialy tall tan head fades to a small lid. Rick aromas of dark chocolate, port, blackberries and hint of hops. Heavy flavors of roasted grains. Very dry. Interesting in that it seem to promise more than it deliver in the end. Nice aroma, nice start, dry and uneventful finish.

So, from reading the bottle, this is supposed to be a 'cure' for a hangover....but its only 4.8%. Regardless, This was a nice tarty experience. The ruby port is not overpowering as one might think at first bottle-reading, yet is more of a simple compliment to a fine easy going stout.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Rich garnet hued liquid. Persistent silky layer of light gray foam. Roasty aroma of cedar, toffee, warm buttered bread, and dried plum. Burnt malt and abundant fruity undertones are coupled with softened notes of phenols, chalk, medicine, and port wood. Firm, fizzy mouthfeel. Slightly creamy. Dominantly notes of roasted barley and high levels of acidity. Phenolic flavors fend the chalky, buttery elements of the dark malts in a strange fashion. Undertones of toffee, licorice, charcoal, cotton, espresso, and port-glazed malts. Finishes substantially bitter with a charred malt, bakerís chocolate lining. Itís a delicious stout, but perhaps more port emphasis would better marry the estery and phenolic aspects. The phenolic/roasted malt blend was outstanding.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Huge white head. Ruby hue, to color. A little diferent in appearance than I expected. Weak coffee aroma. Slight bit of sweetness to flavor. Sugary taste, coffee is present and there is a slight dry finish with an aftertaste that is lasting.

Cherry sweetness and roastiness in aroma. More of the same in the flavor but pretty mild overall. Fair hop bitterness in the finish for a stout.

Bottle. Black color with a ruby tint in the light. A rich light brown head. A strong coffee aroma with the ruby port coming through in the finish. The flavor is nice and light with chocolate, nuts, coffee, and some cherry. Medium body.

The addition of Port led me to expect a little sweetness and perhaps a bit more body. Nah. This was just yer basic nice roasty stout, with a good amount of hop in the finish - dry and also lingering.
