Our secret weapon. A fulsome, winsome strong ale. A deep copper tinged brew for the true aficionado, longer fermentation and thrice hopping bring about a complex soft bitterness allied to a malt induced sweetness with the characteristic oily Fuggles hop perfume. Not just for students. Once "stuffed" savour the flavour of a glass as a digestif... True "Aroma-therapy".

Grain: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley.
Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.

Draft, brewery. Brown color, no head. Kinda of an off beer. Aroma is light caramel, alcohol, raisins. Soapy, medium alcohol content.

Pretty strone this, but quite palatable really. Fairly sweet and malty, but enough hops to make it interesting. Quite nice.

Poured a brown colour with a nice head, served in a sample glass, malty and hoppy aroma, sweetish flavour with a bitter undertone, nice enough, one of the Porterhouses best

KM (386) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2007
Tap. Brown colour. Nice, creamy beige head. First it smells like bakery, then a bit sour milk and at the end sourish and fruity. Strange ... Very nice fruity flavour and ends in a strong bitter finish. (Porterhouse, Dublin, 16.03.07)

Draught @ Porterhouse, WC2, London. Amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, hoppy, fruit, caramel. Flavor start moderate sweet, and ends moderate sweet and heavy bitter with a long duration. A nice complex beer with a good balance between sweet and bitterness.

On tap at Porterhouse Central, Dublin. A rich and complex beer this, with all the good stuff from both malt and hops. One of their very best.

harrisoni (14850) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2006
On draught at Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Like the Thomas Hardy Ale and the Sarah Hughes Ruby Mild I had earlier this is very malty. The malt here is tempered by a good dosing of hop. Still alcoholic and malty. Hop finish is in fact quite harsh, but doesn’t alleviate the rich malt and alcohol. Coffee/choc/syrupy malt aroma and in mouth with some sweetish berry fruit. Hit of harsh hop on end. Sweet tangerine in there too.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Pretty decent strong ale, although for the most part it was muddled and a bit yeasty. Aroma is mixed with citrus, herbla and floral hops along with some fruity yeasty aromas and a thick caramel malt backbone. Flavor is initially pretty sweet with malts then a slightly harsh hop bitterness in the end. Alcohol comes throuhg as it warmed.

TBone (13700) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2006
Draught@brew pub, Dublin. Amber color, steady off-white head. Complex aroma has apricot, mango, glue and brandy. Creamy mouthfeel. Dried fruits mixed with alcohol and hops in the flavor. Hoppy and alcoholic aftertaste. Winter-warmer.
