Collaboration between Pinta and Carlow, brewed in Ireland. Robust oatmeal stout brewed with Polish Marynka and Lubelski hops from around Lublin.

‘Lublin to Dublin’ is opaque black in colour with a ruby tone and creamy tan head. Hints of floral and herbal aromas combine with chocolate and coffee malt notes on the nose. The speciality malts bring roasted coffee bean and chocolate flavours, balanced with the satisfying fullness of rolled oats. The finish is long lasting earthy and herbal bitterness from the smoothness of the rolled oats. Enjoy this beer paired with mature cheese and strong cured meats.

KamilBprz (31) - Pszczyna, POLAND - JAN 19, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 Ciemne piwo, o barwie czarnej, nie przejrzystej z delikatnymi rubinowymi refleksami, z niewielką lecz ładną brązową pianą oblepiającą szkło. W aromacie czuć nuty czekolady, ciemnego chleba i płatków owsianych. W smaku głównie czekolada, oraz kawa. Nasycenie średnie, piwo jest bardzo pijalne. Goryczka średnia.

Aromat z butelki intensywny, przede wszystkim gorzka czekolada i mielona kawa. W szkle ciemne słody, płatki owsiane, aromat lekko zbożowy plus czekolada i kawa. W smaku czekoladowe, trochę mleczna czekolada, kakao, Aksamitne i gładkie, lekkie wysycenie, ma ciało. Pijalne.

Bottle, 0.5L. Pours completely dark with thin but very tasty brownish coffee-like head that last throughout drinking and gives some nice lacing on the glass. Very good looking stout. The aroma of coffee, sweet chocolate and toffi, again all very appealing. The taste is sweet (kind of caffe latte) up-front to be countered by the hop bitterness from the back and than the gentle oatmeal sweetness polishes it. Very well-balanced and very tasty. Body is medium and there’s enough creamy smoothness in it. Very good collaboration, better than expected. A prices is high but it leaves no dissapointment.

Bottle. Jet black, beige, quickly disapearing head. Coffee, dark chocolate, oily body. One vice - clearly noticable metallic taste. Nevertheless great stout, one of the best I’ve ever had.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2014 In the foreground play dark chocolate, roasted malts, caramel (but not sweet). On the second plan light smoked aromas in the form of ham. Some sharp notes of pepper at the end. The taste is rich in all the ingredients contained in the aroma. Full, dry, well ballanced and easy drinking with long chocolate finish. Nice beer! :)
