Faint Whisky-like ester. Dark Brown with tan head. Whisky, chocolate, toast flavors. Thin carbonated mouthfeel with lingering acidity dry finish.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 Cask at ICBF13. Jet black with a large bubbly head. Aroma is toasty malt. Flavour is full on creamy toast, dark malts, burnt coffee, long lingering toasted finish. Best beer at the show. Had it again at ICBF14, still a wonderful beer.

Colore rosso-marrone,scarsa schiuma.Aroma di malto tostato.Sapore di caramello,un pò di amaro del luppolo e sentori di caffè.Sufficiente ma visto l’assaggio improvvisato(un amico tornato dall’Irlanda con un keg di questa birra!!!)andrebbe riprovata,chissà quando...

UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Keg at the Bull and Castle, Dublin. Nice smokiness, coffee, oaky. This has been conditioned with oak chips, which giveds a pronounced woody dryness. Multi layered, well balanced. A pity this is seemingly a one-off.

Cask@ Easter Beer Festival, Franciscan Well. Quite unattractive, murky reddish/brown, small head. I wouldn’t have put it down as a porter. Toasted malt aroma,a little dissappointingly on the weak side. The flavour is very interesting though. Caramel maltiness, some hop bitterness and a real big hit of burnt coffee. The flavour is so dominant that its almost like beer passed through a coffee filter. Not too complex but very distinct. Medium body. Pretty good.
