3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Beige creamy head. Almost black body. Pleasant burned aroma. It’s really refreshing. Very good flavour with honts of coffee, chocolate and dark caramel. Very well balanced. Fades away gradually with all the good flavours intact, before the bitterness finishes it off. (Porterhouse Dublin, 16.03.07)

I like it, the only thing that bugs me is that sometimes the bar-people in the Porter house pour it like a beer rather than a porter and it just doesnt cut it when served that way
A bit heavier than the biggest rival Guinness, still, a nice pint

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep brown-black colour with thick, creamy head that does tend to mask the aroma somewhat. Big roasted, malty flavours followed by strong hints of coffee and some liquorice. The aftertaste is bittersweet from the roasted malts that dominate the flavour.
