"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 damn fine stout! Definitely liked it better than the ubiquitous Guinness in Dublin. Great color and great head. Lived up to the advertising on it!

A rich roast malty stout with lots of hops. The best of Prterhouse’s Stout by a long way.

750 ml bottle from Micheal Jacksons Rare Beer Club. Pure black in color with the best head of any stout I have seen. Three fingers of full and frothy mocha foam, lots of bubbles. Dark roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolates, and mellow hops in the nose. Loved the aroma but was a bit faint in my opinion. Full bodied and fairly complex, but this one is a little bitter for my taste.

Draught@Porterhouse, London. Black colour, mediumsized brown creamy and thick head. Aroma is roasted malts, very dark chocolate and some caramel. Flavour is big roasted malts, some dark chocolate and strong coffee and fudge. Really wellbalanced and pleasant to drink. Roasted nice aftertaste.

On Tap at the Porterhouse, Parliament Street Dublin 23/08/2008 Lots of roast aroma. Small beige head. Black smooth on the palate and strong in alcohol initially with a slight sweetness leading to a crisp very bitter and dry lasting burnt roast and oat finish.

Pours a deep, warm, chocolaty sable with a nice thick light tan head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma is smoky and oily with a firm, slightly sweet mocha undertone. Flavor is like fine roast coffee with an infusion of chocolate, slightly sweet, slightly bitter, hint of licorice. Texture is fizzy, smooth and just slightly grainy.

bottle from papago drank 7/13/10. opaque pour... brown at the edges black with a creamy cappuccino colored head. the aroma is REALLY roasty.... char without the ash, nutty, charcoal brickettes, wood, caramel, cream, molasses, dust, chocolate and beef boullion. the flavor is the same.... reminds me of grilled yukon potatoes.... savory with a nice astringent bitter finish. it is medium-full bodied... a bit thick, rich and soft but astringency and bitterness keep it VERY drinkable. solid!8/5/8/4/17/4.2

A great brew! .. pours out black, good amount of foam .. rich and flavourful for a dry stout, has a nice level of roast, complex too .. . another winner by PH .. . By tattling on your friends, you’re just telling them that you’re a tattletale. Now is that the tale you want to tell?

Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse. Pours an opaque black/brown. Tan head. Big, rich aroma, malt forward but slightly herbal. Syrupy, sweet almost milk chocolate-like richness to body, maybe a touch of of molasses as well. Finish slightly sweet, just a bit of nutty bitterness at very end. Really lovely.

Awesome stout on draught at the Porthouse in Dublin. This is very thick and full of wonderful dark flavors. Coffee and dark fruit. Burnt carmel and good amount of bitterness.
