3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Keg Porterhouse, Dublin. Thick creamy off white head, black body. Roasty malt, bitter, dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Weak hoppy undertone. Some Guinnessy ironness detectable. Not overpowering though. Hints of chocolate. A fine brew, refreshing, very drinkable if a little...umm, plain. Also alcohol toffee and nuts on the nose. Excellent lacing.

Draught at Black Door, Helsinki. Almost black dark reddish brown color. Roasty coffee aroma with hint of bready yeast. Dry, plain coffee flavor with hint caramel, fruitiness, toasted bread and dark fruits. Dry roasty finish with bitterness and charcoal. Very plain, I would like have more complexity on the roast.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2011 On tap at The Wharf, Aalborg. As Dublin Porter. It’s a dark, dark brown beer with a reddish glow. Clear, and topped by a creamy, finger-thick dark beige head. Buttery nose, heavily roasted borderlining charcoal. A bit weak. The flavor is heavily burnt, towards charcoal and ashtray, with notes of butter. Smooth, medium mouthfeel. Roasted bitterness in the finish. Easy drinking, but boring. Rating: 5-4-6-3-12-3. 091025
Bottle. A clear, dark brown beer with a small, dark beige to tan head leaving some lacings. Very roasted on the nose, coffee springs to mind. Some fruityness and a hint of caramel too. The flavor is pretty much the same, dryish, yet with a sweetness, with roasted malts dominating. Some caramel and fruits. Medium to full body. A quite pleasant one, quite tasteful and easy to drink a few of. 110421

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Wharf Aalborg, on St. Patricks Day, under the name Dublin Porter. The colour is black, but when you hold it up to the light it is more of a dark red, with a tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, coffee and some chocolate. Flavour is pretty much the same as the aroma. It is also fairly bitter and it has some char notes. It is more roasted than the Oyster Stout. It has a medium body, and it is fairly creamy. Overall this is a pretty good Porterhouse beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very dark brown with purple tints and a beige foam. Aromas are woody roast malts with far more green pine than expected. Some chocolate with nutty notes. Flavours are coffee with pine and grapefruit. More like a dark ipa. Still good, though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by KnutAlbert. A brief, creamy latte head, resting on a ruby shaded, dark brown colored body. Aroma is mild, toasted malty with coffee and chocolate notes. A scent of stale, cheesy hops and acidulous fruits. Taste has a medium strong malt body, slightly roasted, offset by a certain acidic fruitiness. Mildly hopped, some grass and metal. Light-bodied with a light astringent mouthfeel. Quite an unusual one, maybe not in its best shape.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by knutalbert. Cheers! Looks like coke with a creamy beige head with soapy bubbles. Aroma is of liqourice, coffee, light funky notes. Roasted notes and coffee dominate the flavour profile, with a big sour and dry burnt metallic finish. Thin bodied, mellow carb. It’s a bit wierd what with the funk and sourness. Not bad though.
