Deep brown-black colour with thick, creamy head that does tend to mask the aroma somewhat. Big roasted, malty flavours followed by strong hints of coffee and some liquorice. The aftertaste is bittersweet from the roasted malts that dominate the flavour.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2006
Porterhouse Plain Porter (4.3%): Chocolate and biscuit stand out in the clean malt aroma. Almost opaque brown body is topped by a tan/brown, fine bubbled, nitro head that sticks to the sides of the glass. Biscuit and bittersweet dark chocolate flavours with plenty of roasty bitterness. Medium body with soft mouthfeel typical of a high nitro pour. Sampled on tap at the brewpub in Temple Bar (May-06).

Svesse (6157) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2006
(Draught at Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London, 30 July) Colour is almost black with ruby notes when seen through light, dense beige head. Nose is roasted with notes of chocolate and berries (blackberries, black currant). Taste is roasted with chocolate, coffee and the same berry notes. Light to medium body. Dry and bitter finish with a nice hop character. Nice and smooth with lots of taste.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Wierd how plain means stout. I also seee here that the description says "cold filtered" when in the brewpub they have a sign where they put all the phrases that you wont see in their beers "adjuncts, corn, cold taste etc) and I could almost swear that cold filtered was one of those phrases. Oh well. This was a damn good dry stout overall. Nice and roasty all the way through with slight hints of coffee, and a nice dry bittering finish. Nice, creamy and smooth.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2006
Draught@brew pub, Dublin. Very dark ruby, steady creamy tan head. Cold coffee in the nose. Medium-bodied. Good roasty flavor with long hoppy aftertaste. Balanced, tasty porter. As I sampled this in Dublin - I would say something what Guinness should be.

Covent Garden. Lovely chocolate taste, balanced but lacking in body a tad. Ever so slightly bitter nose.
