COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cold filtered and kegged. Also available bottled at 5.7% ABV.
"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.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle from Beers Of Europe, King’s Lynn, 5.7% ABV
Black color, small but nice looking head, beige, some bubbles over creamy base. The roasted malt aroma is quite nice, maybe with a trace of apples. The mouthfeel is very dry, with strong roasted malt flavor, black coffee, light paper; the extreme roastiness burns the tongue in the final.
Too much burnt stuff.
