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.

I’m not sure I liked this one much. Kind of thought it tasted like band aides a bit. I lost my notes, so this terrible review will have to do.

Half pint pulled on St Patrick’s Day at The White Horse on Parsons Green (London), black with a large beige head. A roasted aroma. A tanginess and roast to the flavour that drinks nice and think through the head and works well.

Deep, rich, oily black stout. Creamy on both the nose and the tongue: lots of coffee and an orange tinge to the aromas. Much more noticeable on the taste, but with an oaty consistency which is nice. I can’t tell you why this brew is cold-filtered -- it is certainly served too cold. Only one black mark on an otherwise exceptionally dry stout. Points off for being a little one-dimensional -- but, hey, if you’re going to brew it, brew it well. They don’t need to get fancy with this one.

Courtesy of Degarth. Thanks Joe. Was nice to see I hadn’t rated this one, I had it at a previous tasting but must have never taken notes on it. Oh well, stoutie ratings rule. Brown body with a light tan head. Very fluffy, nice lasting power and lacing. Smell is a bit odd, some detergent or soap powder, also some fruity esters, licorice, chocolate, coffee and some charred malts. Flavor is similar, but thankfully dropping much or all of the detergent note, and leaving just a pretty good dry stout behind. Body is appropriate to style, drinks very easily. Finish is short to medium in length, a bit bitter or astringent with some coffee and chocolate notes.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2007
750ml bottle, MJ Rare Beer Club, marked as 7% ABV: Black as night pour with an incredibly thick and creamy tan head. Wow, this is hoppy for a dry stout. The nose is orange and lemon juice and zest, pine and perfume on top of a soft, bitter chocolate note. Roasted coffee and dark chocolate dominate the body. Finishes a bit chalky and dry on the tongue.

Black colored, moderate sized tan head, pretty good lacing and retention. Aroma is chocolate with some roasted goodness. Medium bodied, quite dry. Not bad.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2008
The aroma is dusty, detergenty with some dark fruit and dark roasted malt. The body is black with a crazy lasting, thick mocha head. The first sip is sweet chocolate, fruity, malty and it has a very creamy feel. Lingering ashy, sweet fruit flavor with a bit of astringency.

Pailhead (5437) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2010
Bottle: The aroma consist of moderate chocolate, roasted malt, faint burnt notes, and smoke. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights when held to the light and a inch tall beige head with excellent retention and sporadic webbing for lacing. The flavor starts with lots of roasted malt. The finish has moderate bitter black coffee, light-moderate dark chocolate, and burnt notes. The bitter black coffee and burnt notes are a little excessive and harsh. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation and somewhat creamy mouthfeel.
