"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.

Draught - Porterhouse, London. A black coloured stout with a nasty nitro creamy head. The aroma is dry and roasty with some cream effect from the head. The taste is very dry and burnt but there is also a bittering hop quality to add to the burntness. A strongly flavoured quite decent beer.

altonbrownd (4598) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2007
On tap at Porterhouse. This was my favorite of the 10 Porterhouse beers I tried. It looks very much like a Guinness. The smell is of wheat and the taste is quite bitter, as well as chocolate. Very foamy, nice and black. With smooth finish.

750 mL bottle caged and corked. poured an opaque black color. Head was thin and tan. Smelled of dark chocolate and a bit of adhesive tape. Roasty and dry on the tongue with some chocolate and weak coffee flavors. A bit thinner than I had expected.

mansquito (4478) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Off-white head, with a dark brown body. Caramel and roasted malt aromas. Lots of roasted malts in the taste along with the bitter chocolate and the coffee. Noticable hops in the taste as well. More bitter than most stouts are methinks. I expected more, but I got something respectable.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Courtesy of Degarth. Pours black with explosive rocky mocha head and crazy sheet lacing. The aroma has a moment of roasty to burnt malts before a big malted-fig-cotton-ball smell rears up. Odd. The taste starts with mild dark fruitiness from figs, dates and prunes before roasty, mild chocolate malts, malt balls, some vanilla and burnt malts join the fray. Yum. It ends with mostly malt notes and some rich dark chocolate.

Bottle from Michael Jacksons Beer of the Month Club. Probably should of had this before the StArnolds #5 but anyway. Little to zero aroma here. Roastiness, light coffee feel. Very drinkable & enjoyable

(Draught at Porterhouse on 2008-07-01) Almost black. Medium-sized dense tan head. Almost burned aroma in nose. Full and dry palate. Hops, roasted malts and lots of bitterness in taste. Sligtly boring. Ok aftertaste.
