Liquid obsidian with glints of mahogany along the sides and at the bottom. Spotty khaki lace matches a full head of khaki foam. Swirls dense and creamy.
Hello peat! If Laphroig or Ardbeg brewed beer, it’d smell something like this. Iodine, salt, brine, medicinal, and buckets of freshly shucked oysters. Black root and black licorice root in the middle. Meaty. Oysters and the ocean abound – like breathing in the seashore as waves crash onto exposed oyster beds. Burnt malt in the middle. Char.
Medium weight takes me by surprise, although the flavor is anything but medium weight. Brine and oysters shells freshly plucked from the ocean. Dry, slightly bitter finish of plum and purple grape skins. Seaweed and kelp. Umami. Burnt underbelly. Smoke weaves in and out – subtle and subdued.
The nose knocked me out of the park and the flavor came close to bringing me home. I would have enjoyed a little more peat in the body but nonetheless a fine oyster stout indeed. In fact, pass me some raw oysters please, and a glass of Porterhouse Oyster Stout.

Decent oyster stout. But was not nearly as "black" as others describe. Carbonation was minimal with large bubbles. My wife thought it was a coke. A hint of salt.

Looks like a Guinness, identical to the other Porterhouse stouts. The difference was this one was a bit sweeter. Quite nice.

Láhev 330 ml. Aroma připomíná jemnou vanilkovou kávu s banánovými tóny. Pěna je krémová, hnědá, nízká a jemná bohužel rychle mizící. Barva samotného piva je tmavě černá téměř neprůsvitná jen lehce jsou znát odstíny tmavě rudé. Chuťově má pivo lehký kávový základ a znatelný banánový okraj, celkově je sladšího rázu ale je zároveň i silně hořké.

Tap at Porterhouse Central, Dublin: Opaque black coloured brew with an great taste of roasted malts and there is some saltiness. Great beer must be imported to the Netherlands right now.

Pours near black with minimal head. Aroma of smoked maple malts. Taste is roasted with coffee notes. Dark and smokey. Not entirely my cup of tea.

The head is great, the body black. It smells refreshing, fresh, a bit darkmalty. The taste is foamy, salty, roasty, oyster, darkmalty, interesting and tasty. 14/13/12/12/-/13
