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.

330 ml bottle and on tap at the porterhouse central. Nice ale but nothing really impressive. I will try it again.

KUEric (888) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Draft in Dublin: It had an oragne-copper color with a caramel and floral/citrus (couldnt figure out which) scent. Not much head. Defintaly a caramel/toffee undertone to the taste, and an excellent mouthfeel.

mattphilips (802) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 2, 2011
Wein Kultur, Berlin. Opálos, barnás narancssárga színe van, valamint jókora tömör, sárgás színű és kitartó habja. Illata nagyon finom, gyümölcsösen komlós, karamellás, mazsolás és kissé likőrösen alkoholos, de a maláták aromája is jelentős. Íze malátás, mazsolás, gyümölcsösen komlós, mogyorós és karamellás lecsengéssel, illetve gyümölcsös és magvas, jó száraz utóízzel. Testes és ízes, igazán komoly ír főzet, nagyon ízlett.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours amber with a small, white head. Aroma of roasted malts and grassy hops with a hint of dark fruit. Flavor is initially sweet with hints of dark fruit and caramel followed by a grassy bitter finish. Nice balance between sweet and bitter.

Rich brown with thick pillowy head. Aroma is alcohol, nutty and caramel malts. Sipping it is definitely malt-heavy - nuts and toffee. Some hop aroma - mostly floral...but basically it’s a malt story. Lingering bitterness. Chewy mouthfeel. Doppelbock-ish with hops.
