draft @ redlight redlight. Spicy fruity aroma with hints of caramel malts. Pours a reddish amber with a thick white head. Very malty with mild molasses notes and caramel malts with some feint vinous notes with spicy hops. Not bad. Rich malty beer, very barley wine-like.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear, streaming bronze with a dense white head. Aroma boiled sweets (Werthers, Murray Mints) with a waxy, carob-like note I get from some rauchbiers. Strong red apple flavour that isn’t unpleasant but a little overwhelming; hints of biscuit, nuts, a medicinal cherry Tunes bitterness..and lots of alcohol. Hard going- not the pick of the Porterhouse beers.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’m quite a fan of this beer. Its one of the few Porterhouse beers that carrys well in both bottle and tap formats and one of my staples everytime I go to Dublin. Its strength is noticeable and it feels somewhere between an Irish Red and a Strong English. However, it is very strongly flavoured with plenty of nuts and a sweet floral/fruit taste. Aftertaste is lengthy and satisfying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2011 draft @ Porterhouse London. Dark gold, clear, nice lace. Rich mineral aroma. Nutty palate with moderate carbonation and a good bite. Nice hoppy aftertaste. Is bright and floral. Like it...draft @ Porterhouse Dublin. Red, non-sparkled. Spicy malts. Belgian-hinted candisugar in palate adds sweetness. But finishes dry and balanced. Nutty. Nice malts! 7-3-7-3-14 (almost the same rating...)
