"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.

Bottle 33cl from le Barboteur, @ home. A nice stout, very bitter with a touch of acidity and some astringency. Quite dry, smoky.

Lilja (2540) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2015
Flaska drucken med Daniel. En kraftig välgjord tung stout fylld med rostade smaker i bra balans, bra rund munkänsla. Mycket choklad, rostad malt, toner av lakrits och kaffe. Lagom sötma, fin kropp och beska.

jamaty (1750) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Casi negra. Dos dedos de espuma beige. Aroma algo agrio. Compleja en boca, muy ahumada. Muy muy seca. Diferente. No me acaba de convencer. Quizás un nuevo intento...

Draft pour at the source. The beer is a dark brown to black with a khaki head. The aroma has chocolate, ash, and some coffee. Taste is sweet and mildly bitter. Medium body and medium carbonation.

mcberko (12449) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
On tap at The Porterhouse, pours jet black with a small brown head. Nose brings out roasted malt and cocoa. Flavour is rich, with lightly roasted malt and dry cocoa. Quite a lovely palate, full of dry cocoa. Silky, thick palate. Very nice stuff.

Gangstergafje (537) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 The beer has a lovely stout appearance. The color of the beer is a beautiful pitch black, with a nice ruby red glow. The beer pours a delicious soft creamy white head of foam. The foam remains on top of the beer for quite a long time. The creamy layer of foam that remains looks delicious and seals all the aromas in. The beer smells like a proper stout. There are slightly salty aromas of roasted barley, coffee and chocolate. The taste confirms this. There is a nice citrusy hop aroma in the finish. The beer has something special, maybe a smoky sensation. It’s a delicious robust stout, with a youth of freshness in the finish. One of the better stouts in the world, I my opinion. It’s nice, very nice.
