"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.

Bottle Shared with Hogtown Harry and Blankboy, courtesy of Hogtown Harry (thanks Swoopjones!!) Wow, big thanks to Harry for sharing this one, Iíve always wanted to try something from these guys. With a label that claims that theyíre modeling their beer after the stuff Michael Collins and crew used to drink, well, thatís 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.

This ainít for sissies. Itís reminiscent of Guinness Foreign Extra, but I dare say itís more bitter. Thumbs up, but probably too bitter for a lot of palates. It appeals to the Irishman in me.
