Bottle 5% from Systembolaget in Sweden. Pours black. Aroma of roasted, bread and some raisin. Good, but weak, aroma. Taste is medium bitter with roasted, some dried dark fruits and some dark chocolate. A good porter.

Ascelja (812) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 25, 2016
Tap at Porterhouse Temple bar, Dublin. Clear brown to dark brown body, medium creamy beige head. Aroma of low intensity: bread, crust, toasted malts. Taste is sourish to dry, unpleasantly (herbal) bitter finish. Bread, malts, herbs. Light slightly watery body, medium carbonation.
Not really bad, but below the average.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2016
My Bottom Line:
This whipped cream version of a Porter reveals some fruitiness alongside roasted bitterness and mild acidity.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A obviously creamy head of foam covers the darkest brown, producing tons of lacing.
-Nitrogen creates a really bloated mouthfeel in this case, muting some of the beer’s personality.
-Chocolate and a touch of toast are also tasted, eventually.
-Drinkability is high.
-Differences between their Wrasslers Stout, Oyster Stout and Plain Porter are diminished because of the intense nitrogen treatment.

On tap at their Temple Bar location.

Guinness achtig in geur, uiterlijk en smaak. Prima stout/porter natuurlijk! Maar niet beter dan een Guinness zelf.

Light porter that captures what Ireland is all about. I personally prefer this over most any other porter out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Empty scent. Maybe a little whiff of coffee. The taste of coffee and dark chocolate. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Okay but not so impressive. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Black with creamy tan head. Banana and chocolate cake. Round, slick and noble hop finish. Overall: nice.
