"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 from Beers of Europe into a Gouden Carolus glass. Black with a fair creamy brown head. Nice chocolate malt aroma with hops. Malty, hint of sweetness, and lovely rich roast after-taste. Very nice, excellent beer of its class.

Some graininess and heft to the aroma. Looks great. The flavor is all over the place but it works. Thick roasty malt, some smoke and a quite a bit of sweet hops on the back end. Pairs perfectly with the macadamias I’m eating Excellent.

Jamedra (383) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 7, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Láhev 330 ml. Po nalití příjemné aroma kávy s nádechem chmele. Pěna má velmi jemné bublinky a je nízká vzhledem ke stylu piva vypadá velmi přitažlivě a je lehce nahnědlé barvy. Barva samotného piva je temně černá a nepropouští světlo. Po prvním ochutnání hořkost piva která velmi připomíná silnou kávu, přehlušuje ostatní chutě v první chvíly ale po opadnutí nastává velmi příjemná chuť, sytého a tělnatého stoutu přesně tak jak to má člověk rád. Pitelnost je nižší než třeba u Guinnesse.

pivnizub (8574) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 3, 2013
Bottle: Very dark amber coloured, ruby spots detectable,mid-sized loose tanned head, dried dark fruits, roasted malt, ashes and freshly ground coffee in the bitter nose; solid dry bitter flavour, barely medium bodied; heavily lingering bone-dry coffeeish and bitter finish. Wow, what a Stout…

onceblind (3668) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pitch black with a rocky khaki head. Aromas of dry irish roast malt, raisin, and slightly burnt cocoa. Flavor is as if someone dried and burned something that used to be sweet, now is acrid and charred. Smokey roasiness overwhelms the palate with a little sweet dark chocolattiness filtering through, a touch of licorice, and a little bitter earthiness. Not a fan, and certainly not worth $4.79+tax for an 11oz bottle.

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2013
The full caressing body is beautifully balanced with the tingle of tasty sourness complimenting a very long and very satisfying almost earthy dryness. Every element is there to be tasted yet they merge to make a delicious whole

330ml bottle. Dark cola colour, tiny bit of ruby around the edges, milk chocolate head. Aroma is dark chocolate, milk chocolate, roast barley and coffee. Taste is much the same, with some strong roasted coffee aftertaste. Body is thick and creamy without any wateriness. Overall, best dry stout I’ve had, especially the body.
