Tayeth (667) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2014
Farbe ist klassisch-dunkel mit beiger, dicker Schaumkrone. Wunderbares trockenes Schokoladen-/Kaffeearoma, keine besonders starke Süße, schwacher Holzkohlegeruch. Geschmack leicht rauchig mit einem Anflug von Aschenbecher, relativ trocken: Kohle, Erde, starker Kaffee. Schokoladennote kommt leider nicht mehr so zum Tragen.

gueuze (958) - - OCT 1, 2014
Wilder Aschegeruch (nice), sehr fruchtig. Im Geschmack dann leider ein bisschen dünn. Leicht alkoholisch. Zu wenig vollmundig, schade.

stravale (3088) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - APR 3, 2014
Bottle from Drinkstore [030414]
Black, slight ruby light through at edges of glass, initial thin beige head that dissipates to no head at all
Aroma of soft roasted malts, dark fruity malts, sweet dark caramel malts
Taste of soft roast, nice dark fruity malts, dark fruity chocolate, touch of brown bread, some blackcurrant, quite complex
Palate - Very soft carb bordering on to flat, a bit thin, smooth bit oily. Finish as main flavour, smooth sweet dark fruits.
Overall - Let down by the body being a bit thin and it was rather flat, but had a really good flavour. Would really like to try this on cask one day

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JAN 18, 2014
A nice well balanced porter that doesn’t try to do too much or be too complex. Very traditional in all aspects. Would like to see more of a unique approach from this brewer, porter is a style that is very forgiving when making creative additions such as native honey, chocolate, etc.

culchiem (4059) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Brownish black with a thin head. Aroma is toasted malt. Flavor is light chocolate caramel, toasted, some earthy sugar on a fruity malt finish. Texture is a little thin.

dreamflower (791) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfye, while watching hurling on the TV at a pub in Dingle. Nice dark body, with brown head. Roasty aroma and flavour. A very enjoyable porter. I liked it.

3.5
northropfrye (3659) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle in Dingle. Dark black, white head, lacing. Roasty tart aroma, taste is roasted chocolate malts, but also a touch tart, bitterness. A really nice porter.

3.9
ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 2, 2013
700ml bottle, off the shelf, Doyles, Dingle. Deep Brown Black pour, thin mocha head. Intense coffee nose, milk chocolate, some resin, rubber. Flavour follows the nose, coffee dominates, liquorice, aniseed, some understated hop background. Slick, oily palette, full body. Finish is not overly long, but nicely balanced.
