In the winter of 1996 we were inspired by an Irish tradition for a morning after ícorpse-reviverí - a splash of Port in your stout! The inspired blending of Rich Ruby Port with OíHanlonís award-winning stout has created a unique and original masterpiece of craft brewing.

Very nice stout, dark with the largest head that I have ever seen come from a bottle. Smooth with little bitterness. Dry and touched with a hint of the wine flavor.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2003
Intriguing and interesting Irish stout, albeit nothing fantastic. Very dark brown colour. Great roasted and sweet aroma/flavour with a long bitter and dry finish. Perhaps hints of chocolate, coffee and port? The initial palate is nice and smooth, but something isn't quite balanced. Maybe a bit too carbonated for me? Still, a nice and interesting beer.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2003
A super deep garnet color. The head is a huge, frothy tan leaving pillowy cloud formations. The aroma is very interesting. Bitter chocolate, burnt coffee, buttered toast, raisins and red wine grapes. An interesting hop presense shows up after moving away from the nose. The palate is very smooth and creamy. The flavor has a interesting woodiness to it, which accompanies the port and stout characteristics. The bitterness from the coffee, chocolate and hops seems to be mellowed out a slight sweetness toward the end. An interesting idea for a beer. Enjoyable and unique.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2003
Eye-catching mahogany/black. Sweet aromas cascade out of the glass, plus a generous waft of alcohol – strange considering this brew weighs in at only 4.8% alc./vol. A touch of dark chocolate, chalk and rain water rounds out the nose. Head doesn’t stay around very long. Once the brew hits the tongue, the dark chocolate flavour-profile really jumps to the fore, with an ingredients list borrowed from the back of a bar of chocolate: bitter cocoa powder, sugar and salt. The length is little short, but when something tastes this good, the aftertaste can never last long enough.

Laugesen (5) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2003 does not count
Fine dark brown colour. A mild taste of port and sweet liqourice. In my opinon I would prefer a little higher level of alcohol.

Dalle (1145) - SkÝrping, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2003
Nice light brown head and black body. Aroma; dark chocolate, little liqourice, some port perhaps?. Full and smooth. Mild taste with a salty-bitter finish. Stout is not my favourite style.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - OCT 1, 2003
Dark, murky brown color with a once large, later thin film, beige head...lots of yeast sediment at the bottom of my glass. The aroma was very fruity, vinous, and roasted coffee. The flavor was much more present in the flavor...some coffee, some bitterness, and dark fruits. Somewhat thin feel, but enjoyable...smooth, and not crisp on the tongue...wet finish.

Dogbrick (11855) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2003
This beer pours a deep dark brown with a ruby hue and a thick light tan head. Both the head and the lacing are foamy and lasting. Slightly vinous aroma with roasted malt and coffee as well. The body is not as rich as a lot of Stouts, and the taste leans toward a bitter coffee, along with cocoa/chocolate and malt. The port wine that is added does not really enhance the flavor much but it is more present in the aftertaste. I like what this Stout is hinting at, especially considering Port wines are among my favorite. The finish is somewhat dry and bitter and lingers with the coffee and Port flavors. Overall this is pretty good.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Clear, deep, deep copper w/a light chocolate milkshake head and fantastic lacing. Roasted barley and port wine aroma dominate initial sniff, then a little chocolate creeps in, but it's very, very light. Little to no fruitiness. Roasted barley and chocolate malt with port wine and caramel to back it up. Bitterness and sourness from dark grains all balance extremely well. Finish is dry w/a roasty aftertaste and very clean. Not a whole lot of fruitiness in this one that I can detect. Hop flavor is also also subdued to non existant. Dryness of m/f seems to come from dark grains instead of hops, w/ a very subdued carbonation. Wow, what a great beer! Much more character than Guinness for a nice session beer.
