"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.

tomekk1978 (1278) - Z±bki, POLAND - OCT 29, 2015
Aromat: sporo estrów oraz niestety oznaki utlenienia (miód, mokry karton), choć data przydatności upływa za ponad 2 miesiące. Są oczywiście nuty stoutowe, jak czekolada gorzka, kawa zbożowa czy palność, wzbogacone w tym przypadku owsem. Lekki , ziołowy powiew chmielu.

Wygląd: barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa (początkowo zbita), obfita, jakby zbyt, ale trwała i ładnie oblepiająca szkło.

Smak: bardzo wytrawny, raczej kwaskowy niż słodki. Następnie czekolada gorzka, paloność, kawa. Goryczka zdecydowanie powyżej średniej, wsparta przez ciemne słody. Jest ona szczypiąca i długa, na granicy zalegania, ale w tym przypadku się sprawdza. Niska do średniej pełnia, umiarkowane do niskiego wysycenie i kwaskowo- palony finisz.

Bottle 33 cl. Black color with tan foam. Aroma: roasted barley, caramel, dark malts, coffee with brandy and good floral hop. Taste: dry with strong notes of roasted barley, bitter chocolate and black coffee without sugar, strong hoppy and bitter aftertaste. Very good.

On tap at Porterhouse Central. Pitch-black with a solid white head. Heavy bitterness based on roasted barley and backed with an almost unusual hop-bitterness of the style. Nice hoppy and malty aromas. Classy.

Keg in the Porterhouse Temple Bar, Dublin. Black with a good lasting beige head. Little aroma. Ashy flavour with very light spice leading to rich chocolate. Ash returns in the lingering finish. Creamy mouthfeel.

(Bottle) Black body with a big brown head. Roasted malt aroma, dark chocolate, dried fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, creamy mouthfeel; a little bit of a numbing sensation in the mouth. Flavor is bitter, moderately sweet, chocolate, espresso. Dry, roasty finish. Rich and smooth, very drinkable.

sound67 (604) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2015 Maker: Porterhouse Brewing, Dublin, Ireland *** Beer: Porterhouse Wrasslers XXXX Stout *** Style: Dry Stout *** ALC.VOL.: 5.7% *** "Made to a recipe originally brewed by Deasy’s of West Cork in the early 1900’s. This was Michael Collins’ favourite tipple - a stout like your grandfather used to drink. A fine fullsome stout, full in every way, a pungent aroma of late kettle hops." [brewery notes] *** Colour: Reddish dark brown with big, dark beige head. *** Nose: Chocolate, nuts, licorice, vanilla. *** Texture: Light to medium body, still watery. Mild carbonation. *** Taste: Roasted malt. Coffee. A hint of vanilla. Very dry and bitter right from the start. Very bitter chocolate ("Herrenschokolade"). A little milder towards the middle, but still with coffee notes dominating. Finale turns a wee bit sour, like when you’re actually munching on coffee beans. Long, bitter espresso aftertaste. *** Impressions: Very good dry stout, and dry it certainly is. Those who prefer stouts that are clearly different from porters (i.e. no milk chocolate or toffee in the taste) should love this one. My only gripe: A little more body would be great.
