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.

Pailhead (5076) - Brownstown, 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.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Pours a deep brown, near black with a large, poofy, tan head that has excellent retention and big poofy lacing. Aroma is a bit muted but there is some old tar, molasses, campfire, deep woods. Taste is very bitter, roasty, ashy, big on the balancing hops. Very fizzy/bubbly on the palate. Pretty good.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
I had this on nitro at the Map Room into a pint glass...A nice double pour required on this super sticky and totally creamy light tan head that is really not bubbly at all and is almost one solid sheet of head. A boring black beer body leaves not much to discuss...The light aroma of just roasted coffee is boring to my senses and I do not have high hopes for my first sip...The taste confirms this is an amazing looking beer but boring in other regards. A light coffee tastes throughout with an amazingly too bitter coffee finish, very dry and tannic. The flavor after several sips gets worse and despite my most sincere hopes I cannot just crush is 5% beer to end the night and I have to leave it half full. A too dry and bitter irish stout that almost, almost should be gotten to just look at, or better yet tell someone else to order and just look at the ensuing porn. Stay away from the bottle though.

Deu (723) - Nantes, FRANCE - JUL 21, 2012
On tap at the porterhouse central in Dublin.Irish stout with a reàlly strong taste. Stronger than the oyster and the plain. I recommend once in a while for people who like strong stout.

radarsock (1003) - Vermont, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle, purchased just days ago at Dutch’s curbside bottle shop. It’s pour is dark-almost-black brown with a thick, sandy espresso foam head. When it comes to length of head, I don’t think I would like to count the fingers for this one. Smells ans tastes predominately of seawater, charcoal, hops, lilac, and bittersweet chocolate. Yeast and cornstarch at swallow. Drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (9957) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Tap at Porterhouse, Covent Garden - 13/12/12. Mid black with a sizeable tan head that retains well. Nose is dark malt, mineral and metallic tones, hint of chocolate. Taste is bitter roast malt, bitter dark chocolate, touch of mineral and iron. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, roasted dry finish. Ok drinkable stout - no world beater.
