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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Porterhouse, London
Picturesque ruby-highlighted deep brown body with thick creamy nitro head.
Somewhat muted nose; roasted malts prominant, dark chocolate and mocha, some subtle hop character detectable.
Slightly creamy texture, low to medium carbonation, dry roasted texture with quite lean weight.
Nice roasted malt body, plenty of milk chocolate and latte flavours. Hops come through on the finish, earthy spice, lending quite a solid bitterness.
A good dry porter for sure.
