MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2008
A Mes rate: Draught at the Porterhouse.
Dark red with a good off white head. Quite roasty (more so in the flavour), nice chocolate, some nice coffee and a bitter chocolate finish. Mouthfeel is a bit of a let-down.

Daithi8640862 (24) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 25, 2008
This beer pours with a thin head and a dark ruby red body..definite sweetness on the palate but a smooth balanced finish and roasty aftertaste make this quite an enjoyable porter.

larsga (6937) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2008
Medium beige creamy everlasting head. Barely translucent deep dark brownish red body. Faint cocoa powder aroma. Dry, slightly watery, cocoa powder taste with hoppy notes and a metallic background. A little coffee. Nice, but unremarkable. (0.2l draft, Porterhouse Temple Bar, Dublin.)

The last beer from my 3 days session in London. Black coloured, medium sized brown head. Mild roasted malt, chocolate and coffee taste with notes of smoke and dark fruit. Very smooth and enjoyable porter.

With a sweet nose and a candy like flavour, this beer was the weakest of the ’stout’ offerings. This beer felt watered down.

FatPhil (12181) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2007
Keg (Porterhouse, Dublin) Black, nitro head. Nitro kills the aroma, but a dry burntness is detectable.Good bitter stout, drying and nicely punchy despite its 4.3%. Burnt malt and bitter finish. Maybe my favourite PH brew.

NIce porter one, I am not as fan of them as of Stouts, but it was a little alcoholic in its taste. Good to drink.
