3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg (Porterhouse, Dublin)
Almost black, nitro head. Nitro deadens the aroma, but there’s still plenty of coffee and malt in it. Very pleasant in the mouth, viscous, and almost warming despite the cold, probably due to the sweetness. Good solid sweet stout. The oysters do impart something to the flavour, but it’s hard to say what - maybe what an iodiny sea-shore aroma would taste like?
