TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 16, 2006
Draught at The Porterhouse in Covent Garden (London), dark with a very brown creamy head. Subtle malty aroma with a little bit of caffeine. Strong coffee flavours in a good bitter palate.

tiggmtl (4545) - 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 (6844) - 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.

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 (13700) - 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.

bluevegie (3066) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2006
Covent Garden. Lovely chocolate taste, balanced but lacking in body a tad. Ever so slightly bitter nose.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2006
Almost black colored, medium sized thick beige head. Coffee, roastiness and sweetness in aroma, fine aroma. Roasted coffee also in flavor, aftertaste lasts with dryness. Medium bodied.

UnsofistaCat (239) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2006
A Guiness clone. Roasty, dark, nitro tap. Not bad. I think I enjoyed even more becuase I was sitting in Dublin drinking it.
