COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our secret weapon. A fulsome, winsome strong ale. A deep copper tinged brew for the true aficionado, longer fermentation and thrice hopping bring about a complex soft bitterness allied to a malt induced sweetness with the characteristic oily Fuggles hop perfume. Not just for students. Once "stuffed" savour the flavour of a glass as a digestif... True "Aroma-therapy".

Grain: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley.
Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Clear red brown pour with a thick white head. Malty aroma with grain and some maple. Strong flavor with lots of malt. Some hops, but a bit funky with some unpleasant flavors.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2008
A Mes rate: tap at the Porterhouse. Clean, bright amber with a slim off white head. Bland fruity aroma with some fairly clear alcohol. Rather harsh and unrestrained in the mouth. Strong notes of straw and hay with a big hit of cheese and alcohol in the finish. Out of balance and a bit cheap all round. Something to get folks drunk who don’t really care what they throw down their neck, so long as it does the trick...

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2008
Draught @ The Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Amber/copper with an off white head, it’s hard to judge in the dim lighting. Good hoppage, slightly metallic but it’s ice cold so what do you expect. Eventually sweet bready malts emerge as it warms. Flavour sees a nice bitter lick on the back of the tongue with sweet malts rounding it off. I imagine there’s a little more depth to it if you have the patience but unfortunately that’s not my forte.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 1, 2008
Draught. Pours appealing opaque amber, with decent head. Roasted malt and yeast on the nose. Pleasant mouthfeel of fruity hops, malt and caramel. High alcohol content is well camouflaged. Decent beer.

Rune (12264) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2008
Draught strong ale served at a perfect drinking temperature at Porterhouse, London. An off-white foamy head over a shining mahogany body. Malty to the nose. Solid taste of dark and dried fruits on a malty backbone. Bitter endnotes. Almost full bodied (full pint shared with Geir, 05.08.2008).

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2008
One of my favorites sampled at the Porterhouse both in Dublin and London. This beer is a nice amber and a good mix of bread/malt and bitter/sweet. Mouthfeel is moderate carbonation. It’s light in body and yummy.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2008
Darker amber coloured beer with some very light carbonation and a small white head. Light roasted malty aroma with a full palate. Finish is bitter malty, rather nice brew with some strong touches.

Draught at Porterhouse Central; dublin. Deep copper with a small, off-white head. Loads of butterscotch in the aroma along with some citric notes. Dry and grassy bitterness. Pretty light and fresh.
