"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.

A very good stour this. Much better than the overrated and overhyped Guinness, which is drunk by gormless posers. This is a stout that the Irish should be proud of and should be drunk much more widely than its evil cousin. Sweet and caramel in taste, but what I like the most is the long lasting dry bitter aftertaste.

C-bus 7. Light roasted malt. Black body with a thin head. Medium palate. Lightly bitter toasted malts and some hints of coffee. Some grassy flavors show up now to make this more complex and are joined by an astringent malt flavor that detracts from the flavor.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle... Pitch black ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is of coal dust and cocoa powder. Burnt, bitter flavor with no residual sweetness. Bursts of dark chocolate and espresso. Full-bodied and astringent with soft carbonation. Bitter, acrid finish. A big SHOUT goes out to jjpm74 for providing the bottle!

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Poured a very dark brown color with no real head. Sweetish lacto roast aroma, with some dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, mildly carbonated. Mild roast character in taste, with a clean, dry finish. A decent dry stout.

750ml bottle from footy - thanks Rudy! - Shared this one at Columbus 7 tasting - Pours dark brown with a short offwhite head. Aromas of smoky roasted malts over chocolate and caramel. Flavor is quite roasty as well with a good amount of smoke there. Some good sweetness finds it’s way through with notes of caramel and chocolate. Smooth and rich throughout with a nice dry finish. I really enjoyed this one.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Pours a pitch black with an off white head. Nice roasty and chocolatey aromas fill the nostrils. Just a touch of some coffee too, but not much. The mouthfeel is rather creamy and full. Big roastiness on this beer, which has a little nuttiness to it as well mixed in with some chocolate. Nice flavor. Pretty good brew.
