ComradeK (1109) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2009
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.

bobinlondon (1288) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2008
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.

Tap @ Porterhouse, London.
Pours chestnut brown with a nice, staying, creamy, beige head. Weak aroma, some nuts and lightly roasted. Low carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasantly roasted, perhaps a bit one-sided with good chocolate and a roasted, dry aftertaste.

Very dark brown coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small off-white head. Roasted light sweet aroma, rather little aroma actually. Full creamy bodied palate. Finish is roasted, creamy sweet sith some roasted barley touches, smouther near the end. Not bad.
