[2150-20090515] Tap. Dry peas aroma has some chocolate hints and fruit notes. Clear, dark mahogany red body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head and thick lasting lacing. Mild roast malt flavour has something of a figginess. Medium body is a little thin. Drinkable.

2009-05-15. Very dark brown body with red around the edges, creamy tan head and lacing. Flavour is quite pleasant, dry roast with notes of cocoa and mocha. Pleasant bitterness throughout. Roasty aroma, dark roast malt with a touch of coffee like roast, bit of hops? Smooth average palate is just a touch lighter than my preference. (3+) Quite a quaffable porter. On tap at the brewpub.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pint on tap at the Porterhouse Brewing Co., Temple Bar, Dublin. Deep brown, nearly black colour, with a thick and silky smooth pale head. It has a very strong roasted barley aroma, and this is also the first noticeable flavour. There are powerful notes of dark chocolate and espresso, with a hint of fresh cream. It leaves an aftertaste of mountain stream water, in that it is crisp and refreshing, but with strong tannin notes. The flavour lingers, and it is pleasantly smooth on the palate. An exceedingly good beer.

Nitrokeg at the Porterhouse, London. Brown black with a creamy offwhite head. Full of roasted goodness with a crisp hoppy finish. Guinness in Ireland was almost as good as this before they started pasturising it. Brilliant keg beer.
