UPDATED: JUL 28, 2015 Maker: Porterhouse Brewing, Dublin, Ireland *** Beer: Porterhouse Wrasslers XXXX Stout *** Style: Dry Stout *** ALC.VOL.: 5.7% *** "Made to a recipe originally brewed by Deasy’s of West Cork in the early 1900’s. This was Michael Collins’ favourite tipple - a stout like your grandfather used to drink. A fine fullsome stout, full in every way, a pungent aroma of late kettle hops." [brewery notes] *** Colour: Reddish dark brown with big, dark beige head. *** Nose: Chocolate, nuts, licorice, vanilla. *** Texture: Light to medium body, still watery. Mild carbonation. *** Taste: Roasted malt. Coffee. A hint of vanilla. Very dry and bitter right from the start. Very bitter chocolate ("Herrenschokolade"). A little milder towards the middle, but still with coffee notes dominating. Finale turns a wee bit sour, like when you’re actually munching on coffee beans. Long, bitter espresso aftertaste. *** Impressions: Very good dry stout, and dry it certainly is. Those who prefer stouts that are clearly different from porters (i.e. no milk chocolate or toffee in the taste) should love this one. My only gripe: A little more body would be great.

Draft at the source with the family. Pours a deep black body with thick creamy brown head and lacing. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy with notes of rich roast, dry toasty character and coffee/chocolate. Nice hop profile to balance the roast.

Flaska drucken med Daniel. En kraftig välgjord tung stout fylld med rostade smaker i bra balans, bra rund munkänsla. Mycket choklad, rostad malt, toner av lakrits och kaffe. Lagom sötma, fin kropp och beska.
