DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants. Glossy pitch pour- detectably ruby at the edges, with an attractive, dimpled grey-tan collar. Nose is a dribble-maker; Nutella on burnt (not inedible) toast, streaks of blackcurrant jam deep down, a glossy black carapace of waxed carbon and carob draped with Young’s-like Cadbury’s lushness. Fuck, I’m having a bit of a rave about this, and it probably isn’t even very good. It’s been a long time since I’ve taken delivery of a box of treats, which this is; fag ash on toast, burnt pistachios, the faint grittiness of Galena wrapped up in a soft, slightly lactic chocolate sweetness. Slick and full-bodied. Tastes and feels like Gwince still does in some of the pubs in Dublin (really). Impressive- I dare say highly sessionable, conversational stuff. Could drink this until it came out of my eyes. Sometimes 330ml of plain’s your only man.

JaBier (5485) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle brought back by a friend. Pours a clear reddish brown with a medium beige head. One of the best smelling beers I’ve experienced. Like chocolate milk and a bit of roasty coffee. Flavor is roasted malt and ashy grain with a bit of chocolate before a creamy and bitter finish.

esox (1189) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2010
Draught. Dark brown colour, rich and creamy head. Nice, bell balanced aroma of dry and moderately roasted malts, a hint of dried fruits and resins of hops. Dry and slightly sour-roasty taste, a hint of coffee in the finish. Balanced mouthfeel is enjoyably dry and soft.

Tap @ Malja, Kuopio.
Poured a dark reddish brown colour with a creamy, off-white, lacy head. Aroma of roasted malts, apple and syrup. Flavour of roasted malts, apple and mild caramel. Light/medium bodied, slick to watery mouthfeel with average carbonation. Watery porter.

Had this at the Porterhouse in Temple Street This guys really like their creamy foam, not a big suprise with all the Guinesse going around in the town... Not the biggest of porters, and it feels unbalanced, like a coffee mocca with water. And that is not a compliment

Leighton (13985) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2010
Tap at Porterhouse, London. Pours a clear, garnet-brown with a fluffy, off-white head. Chocolate aroma with maltiness to spare. Sweet and roasty flavor of moderate complexity. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Quite a roasty finish with a bit more mocha. Everything I want in a Dry Stout. Very good.

pete4999 (1218) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2010
On tap at Porterhouse in Dublin, Ireland. Good beer. Pretty sweet with a bit of chocolate, I thought. Not a ton of bitterness in it. Impressive looking, as with the rest of their stout line.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2010
(Draught@Hilpeä Hauki, sampled 2010-01-15) Clear, dark amber with a small, firm, lacy head. Very mild aroma with some chocolate and sour roastiness. Sourish flavor with roasted malt, dark coffee, and ashines in the finish. When warmer, gets chocolate and dried fruit also. Medium body, quite soft CO2. Average, sourish porter.

patrick767 (3727) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2010
tap at the Temple Bar location - Pours near black with a lasting head that leaves heavy lacing. It smells of roast malt and coffee. The flavor is of dark roast malt, coffee, and chocolate. There’s a mildly bitter roast finish. It’s a good stout though a touch on the watery side. It may just be served too cold though I tried to let it warm.
