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.

Pitch black pour, decent off white head. Aroma: smoked woodchip, oatmeal, chocolate, pepper, smoked meat, malty. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. This was very nice.

Arczir (129) - POLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Lots of chocolate and coffee in nose, aroma is strong and pronounced. Floral, hoppy notes are hidden under strong, malty aroma.
Creamy, tan head with average lacing and great retention.
Really smooth on the palate, flavourful and tasty. Lingering, earthy aftertaste.

Holy goodnes, that’s a tasty stout.

adasko (1078) - Poznan, POLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Aroma od dark tanned malts with coffee and chocolate. It’s completely dark, non-transparent with small ruby reflections. The head is quite poor, but lacing is OK. In long and delicate taste there is a lot of coffee. It’s very smooth and feels great in the mouth.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
A near black pour, topped by low creamy ashy-blond head. Nice rounded and subtle aroma of mild licorice, a gentle roastiness and tinned dark fruits. Supersmooth mouthfeel. Soft flavors, fully balanced. Licorice, mild roast, dark chokolade, tinned dark fruits. Delicious and elegant. [Draft at Taphouse, Křbenhavn]

Bottle @ EBBC14 [280614]
Dark brown, frothy tan head, some lacing
Aroma of mellow roast, dark malts, bit spicy, soft chocolate then some more roast
Taste as aroma, nice mellow dark malts, soft spicy hops, dark chocolate
Palate - soft carb, smooth body, tad sweet. Finish is a bit dry, some bitter dark chocolate
Overall - One of the best beers O’Hara’s has produced...I prefer Leann Follain slightly better but have rated both 3.8

mgajdaczewa (1028) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Solidny stoucik. W aromacie kawa, gorzka czekolada, niezbyt wyraźny, ale smakowity. W smaku kremowa tekstura, lekko wodnisty, wyraźnie palony, kawa, czekolada, przyjemny, wyrazisty palony finisz. Pijalne, nie czuć alko ani trochę. Stout jaki być powinien, bez szału.

Typowy Stout owsiany, choć nie do końca z wyczuwalnymi nutami owsianymi, wyczuwalne odpowiednie dla stylu nuty palonych słodów (głównie czekolada). Czy udana kooperacja? Myślę że tak jednak, jakoś bardziej mi smakował Dobry Wieczór z Pinty, który ponadto zachęca niższą ceną. Piwo smaczne ale znowu szału nie ma.

BeerViking (3332) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle, black-red with a tan head and a choc and malt nose. Rich and dry, choc and a touch of wine. Smooth with hints of treacle toffee and ash in the finish.
