"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.

Muy rica dry-stout. Poderosa dentro de su estilo. Cuerpo sedoso, bonita presencia y un montón de maltas tostadas, torrefactas y toques ahumados en nariz y boca.

puren (726) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - APR 16, 2016
czarne, obfita piana opada do grubej warstwy i pięknie firankuje;
średnio intensywny - rum, rodzynki, melasa, po zabełtaniu czuć zboże i nuty mleczne;
ciało wysokie, wysoko nasycone, bardzo puszyste, finisz kwaskowy;
wyraźny - palony na czekoladowy sposób, dosyć kwaśny i ta kwaśność bardzo długo się utrzymuje, bardzo powoli, i na chwilę, ustępuje krótkiej palonej goryczce, żeby znowu wrócić do głosu;
bardzo zaskoczył mnie dublowy aromat, smak jest bardzo stoutowy, pobudzający, piwo też przyjemnie zachowuje się w ustach.

With the long tradition of producing excellent stouts my expectations for this one was set high, maybe too high. The roast aromas are there together with bready flavors. OK.
