"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.

Black with airy light tan froth. Roasted and hoppy aroma with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and licorice. Roasted flavour with coffee and strong, lasting bitterness. Ok but mouthfeel is a little too light.

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.
