"Made to arecipe originally brewed by Deasyís of West Cork in the early 1900ís. This was Michael Collinsí 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.

Barely got any notes for this one written down. Had some light roasty chocolate to this. Pretty tastey though for a dry stout.

kramer (5395) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2007
25 oz bottle, via jjpm74. Pours a dark black body under a rather large two inch foamy brown head. Lots of visible carbonation retains head for the duration. The nose is quite roasty and chocolaty with a nice hoppy note, with some light licorice and burnt notes. The flavor is really well balanced with the burnt and roasted malts lending that classic dryness without being too astringent, then finishing with a lingering english hoppiness and a little chalk. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky with very light soft carbonation. The head must have taken away the carbonation thankfully. The texture is watery, but not thin. This was a really nice beer. Quite flavorful and with a good amount of complexity for a Dry Stout. A little under-rated in my opinion.

Thanks for bringing this to a tasting, General_Gao. The body was black with a light orange colored head. The aroma was sweet chocolate with vanilla. The taste was soybeans with some coffee. There was also a bit of chocolate and a bitter finish. The body was very smooth. A good stout that I would like to try again.

ChainGangGuy (4559) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Appearance: Pours a black opaque body with a creamy khaki-colored head. Smell: Mild aroma of roasted malts, light caramel, and one tiny handful of nuts, all hedged by a definite sourness. Taste: Roasted malt flavors of coffee and dark chocolate with, again, just a smattering of nuts. However, all the flavors are rather muted, except for that sourness. A decent amount of roastiness with just a bit of hops on the finish. Some alcohol peaks through now and again, which seemed surprising for a beer thatís listed at 5%. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Soft carbonation. Drinkability: I didnít care for this one at all.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Pours a mostly opaque black with a nicely-lacing light brown head. Dry, earthy roasty aroma has some bittersweet dark chocolate notes and fresh American hops. Body starts slightly tart and very dry with some earthy notes and a roasty finish. Goes well with dark chocolate, but could use a little sweetness on its own.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2007
On tap at the Porterhouse Dublin. Opaque black body with a creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee. Taste of coffee, chocolate with a double shot of espresso in the finish. This beer tastes big even after tasting two other Porterhouse stouts.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2011 Pours a lovely stout black, toffee aroma with a coffee and toffee punch!!!!! Very very enjoyable tap stout, will certainly drink again Rerate 4 years later, just some additional notes: Bitter, dark chocolate, leather, malt, espresso finish. Delicious.

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.
