UPDATED: DEC 12, 2004 Strong fresh ground coffee aroma, extreamlly smooth and creamy mouthfeel, medium delicate body, the roasted flavour is amazing not a robust beer but a great light refreashing stout.

On tap at Fraunces Tavern in NYC. Opaque black with reddish hints and creamy head. Roasted coffee and malt on nose. Smells delicious, and taste follows through with rich, classic porter flavors, coffee, burnt caramel, toffee. Could drink this all through a winter’s day. Among the best porters around at this abv.

Nitro @ Porterhouse, Covent Garden. I really like this. Black , velvety porter with chocolate and coffee malts on the nose, creamy/velvet in mouth and more chocolate/coffee on the finish. Very satisfying

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.

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.

Thx. to Sebletitje for this one. 33 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Finally another dry stout from Ireland, if this stuff is any good – there will be finally a rebuttal to people who keep insisting that Guinness is at the very least the best in its style. I assume any beer can claim to a bogus beer style and profess to excel in it regardless of the quality of the beverage. Pours a brown, light black. Smells sweet with candy, caramel, dark sugar, pie, toffee and fresh coffee. Tastes of sweet caramel, toffee, liquorice, herbs, pie, dark sugar and fresh coffee. Body is a tad lighter. Bit surprise, very lovely & easy going beer. A fine dry stout at least.

You gotta love a place where the bartender gets insulted when a patron orders a Guinness. This is what they serve up instead and it is far superior.

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.
