COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On Thursday 27 April 1916 the Enniscorthy brigade of the Irish Volunteers proclaimed the Republic to the good people of Wexford from the steps of the Athenaeum theatre. "Ireland through us, summons her children to her flag and strikes for her freedom" Thus for one glorious week, a tricolour flew high over the roofs of Enniscorthy, a tiny island of freedom in the vast ocean of the British empire. Proclamation Porter is an old school Irish stout, such as those brave men and women of Wexford would have known, brewed from our own native grains, grown in the very soil they pledged to liberate, with chocolate and dark crystal malts for a velvety finish, with notes of chocolate and coffee.

Beersiveknown (5196) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 18, 2016
sample from bottle at killarney beer fest
quite dry and toasty, ending with some black tea notes. A good starting point but lacking finesse perhaps. Lots of malt character but missing something, perhaps hop freshness or fruity yeast esters.

stravale (2955) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 11, 2016
Bottle from Supervalu, Longford [010416]
Black, thin tan head that dissipates quickly, light lacing
Aroma of roasted malts, soft roast coffee, soft dark sweet malts
Taste of roasted malts, soft coffee, dark sweet malts in background offset fairly bitter roast, tasty
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, bitter roast balanced well with dark malts. Finish is quite bitter, bit dry, some burnt toast.
Overall - Good example of a dry stout, needs a swirl to get the flavours out
