3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

(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.

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.

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
