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.

Sampled from 0.5l bottle @ ōlfestival KÝbenhavn 2012. This is a deep dark brown beer with a small bubbly and sidesticking beige head. The aroma has tones of smoky beef, sweet malts, some cardboard and licorice. Kinda light bodied with a soft silky carbonation level. Light roasted flavors, some chocolate paper, smoky nuances and itís kinda sweet with licorice. Tasty one! 10.05.2012

Cask @ Spoons, Edinburgh. Spring Beer Festival (Ratings Backlog). Pours black with a tan head. Nose is rich, chocolate, malty, berries. Taste is chocolate, slight coffee and then you do get a little warming port. Iíve had this years before i knew about RB and i donít think its as good as it used to be that said its till a nice beer.

Gravity at Newtfest 2016. Deep chestnut with a frothy cream head. Malty chocolate aroma. The taste is quite rich with chocolate, coffee and a little vinous note. A bitter tang in the finish. Pretty good.

mR_fr0g (9555) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Cask at the crosse keys, city. Dark black / brown coloured pour with a lasting dirty greyish tam head. Aroma is dark choc, mineral flint, dry powdered choc and dirt. Flavour is composed of semi sweet chocolate malts, medium bitter roast and mineral, burnt toast. Palate is semi sweet, rounded, slightly thin, lowish cask condition. Harsh bitter roast lingering with some dark fruits.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2016
Cask at The Bishopsí Mill (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint. Black with a thick, cream-coloured head. There are dark malts, chocolate and a little smoke in the aroma. The body is disappointingly thin and watery but the flavours are appealing - a pleasant blend of cocoa, cream, caramel and berries, although I couldnít detect much of the promised port. Okay.

Black beer, brown head. A bit of coffee in the smell, which is pretty dry. Flavourís dry too... a splash of coffee, earthy malt, bitter chocolate and a healthy hit of the port too. Very drinkable.

500ml bottle from Tuckers Maltings. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of chocolate, light port (could be the power of suggestion). Taste is fruity, some roast coffee. Bitter finish.
