COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

"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.

mike_77 (3126) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2007
Solid black appearance with a creamy head. Full flavoured dry stout with the alcohol rearing itís head amongst the malty, treacle-like taste. Very bitter aftertaste that dries out the pallet very quickly. Not suited for a session.

hopscotch (9162) - 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!

CaptainCougar (7132) - 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.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Dark brown pour with rustic crimson hues. A creamy light brown head disperses rapidly. the aroma is of sweet coffee, moderate roasted grains, burned caramel, astringent but not alcoholic at all. The flavor is very astringent, with just a touch of sweetness, hints of acrid smoke, torched caramel and unpleasant in many regards. The taste took a total nosedive. The finish is bitter, burnt, medium in duration and leaves sour roastiness lingering. Mouthfeel is tingly, adequately carbonated and dull, somewhat scattered. Interesting but not very drinkable.

MJís Rare Beer Club 7/13/07: Black body w/a lasting medium sized beige head. Metallic w/ sherry like oxidation at first in the aroma, then prunish dark fruit esters. Also minerally. Very light chocolate & roasted grains and a touch of soapy hops with hints of toasted and caramel malts. The flavor is well balanced between sweet and bitter up front, but finishes bitter and lingers into the aftertaste. Light chocolate malt, and again, a soapy flavor w/ herbal and earthy hop presence. Brown sugary at the start and some lightly toasted malt. Light raisiny ester in the flavor and also a touch of alcohol. Fuller medium body, warming alcohol, low carbonation, and a dry m/f. Okay but not great! A bit too harsh around the edges to be truly enjoyable for me.

possibly recorked and caged by walt. i love a mystery. asshole. short, nonscary asshole, short non scary friend of mine asshole. see you in hell, iíll save you a seat fucker. so there are rtimes that i want a new beer, something that will make me lean back and exclain,iím ready. lets crack this little big boy(thatís right walt, this razting will reference you). fucking hell man, i have to go find my vise grips to get the cork out. sonsabitches, vise grips did no bueno, on to the corkscrew. bastards.finally opened with a whimper, a lot like walt. pour is attractive, a non walt head, i mean a large towering brown cap on a dark brown black body,. i bet walt love to be on a brown black body, as long as it is well hung. my my, this is a grat and powerful oz like nose, the kind that makes munchkins like walt run in fear. strong smoke, chocolarte scents, a joy to smell, unlike some broken skulled people. tastes like an evening with walt, high expectations, then you see him, well, who knows, then you think this could be a good time in spite, then walt talks, and makes himself known, and you know thsat what was hinted at will fall short. you will still have a good time, but still be disappointed(especially if you are a woman, or even worse a gay man) still there are endearing things about it. the light smoke note is good, the bitter chocolate and sweet cocoa work well, but the finish is a mess. everything kind of bogs down and leaves you wanting more. and wantinng out of the sweet smokey mess. gets a bit better as it warms and winds uop finishing in a chocolate smoke that is more subtle. flavors linger in a metallic smoke chocolate. in the end, fuck off walt. fuck off you little piece oíshit.
