"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.

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.

puren (726) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - APR 16, 2016
czarne, obfita piana opada do grubej warstwy i pięknie firankuje;
średnio intensywny - rum, rodzynki, melasa, po zabełtaniu czuć zboże i nuty mleczne;
ciało wysokie, wysoko nasycone, bardzo puszyste, finisz kwaskowy;
wyraźny - palony na czekoladowy sposób, dosyć kwaśny i ta kwaśność bardzo długo się utrzymuje, bardzo powoli, i na chwilę, ustępuje krótkiej palonej goryczce, żeby znowu wrócić do głosu;
bardzo zaskoczył mnie dublowy aromat, smak jest bardzo stoutowy, pobudzający, piwo też przyjemnie zachowuje się w ustach.

Bottle Shared with Hogtown Harry and Blankboy, courtesy of Hogtown Harry (thanks Swoopjones!!) Wow, big thanks to Harry for sharing this one, I’ve always wanted to try something from these guys. With a label that claims that they’re modeling their beer after the stuff Michael Collins and crew used to drink, well, that’s pretty neat too, here goes. Dry dry dry aroma - dusty, sweet with some chocolate - good start. Pitch black, medium brownish head. Very dry taste - great full body, molasses, chocolate, some hops. Milky. Very drinkable. A wonderful session dry stout that exceeded my very high expectations.

Frsh off the tap this was a dark brown topped night. A fine stout with a strong hop attack at the back, and a deep flavour of roast.

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.

Aroma is dominated by roasted coffee and liquorice, cocoa notes too, black, sporting a tiny toffee head. Taste is unbeatable coffee, gorgeous liquorice, fine dark chocolate. Medium bodied, superbly balanced, bitter and bold. Incredible! Thanks Torontoblue.
