"Made to arecipe originally brewed by Deasy’s of West Cork in the early 1900’s. This was Michael Collins’ favourite tipple - a stout like your gradfather used to drink. A fine fullsome stout, full in every way, a pungent aroma of late kettle hops. A generous quantity of roast grain for flavour, bitter with flaked barley producing that rich body."
Ingredients: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley; Galena, Nugget and East Kent Goldings hops.

12oz bottle from Dark Horse. Pours an oily thick black into the tulip glass, very little head, just leaves a thin tan cream on top, some lacing down the glass. Aroma of dark fruit, toast, cocoa, coffee, some molasses. Flavor is the same, slightly thinner than I was expecting. Palate is full and oily, extremely smooth and easy to drink.

superspak (2200) - Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
330 ml bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours nearly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, coffee, molasses, light herbal, and roast/bready earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of roasted/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light molasses, light herbal, and roasted earthiness. Good amount of sharp roasted/earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light molasses, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of roasted/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming presence after the finish. Overall this is an excellent dry stout style. All around great balance and complexity of roast/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

tompete (197) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
On tap at the wharf. Deep clear black with ruby edges and a silky tan head. Aroma of coffee and roasted items. Flavour is malty and strongly but smoothly bitter. Silky mouthfeel and medium body. Finish is almost big and definitely bitter, maybe from hops but probably the black patent malt.

Drought. Inky black with creamy chocolate colored head, milk aroma, coffee beans and milk taste, low carbonation, longish finish with a bit of bitterness on your palate. Very much like Caffreys

TaxiDriver (1440) - Stadland, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
A light smell of malt, not much else. The body is black, the head has a normal size, it is pale beige and milky. It has a strong taste of roasted malt and coffee, quite bitter finish. The body is medium to very strong, very creamy with a soft carbonation. A very good Stout!
