Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted malt and hop aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

11.2 oz bottle, with a pull-ring cap. Clear brown color, minimal khaki head. Barely any lace. Nice dark malt chocolate nose. A bit of plain coffee. Nice light bitter and toasted taste. Some sweet light carbonation, smooth dry texture. Nice to enjoy with my moms cheesy pasta chicken casserole creation. Not a bad brew.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2012 While visiting Dublin we went to the the Porterhouse Pub on Parliament Street. It was packed on a Saturday night. The Plain was tasted third after the Temple Brau and the Pale Ale. The creamy head was perfect. A very smooth porter with the best head in Dublin. The clean smooth taste was wonderful from start to finish. The porter was recommended by Steven at the bar. The 4.3 ABV beer was perfect. It would be hard to improve on such a great beverage. I will rate the place later but it was the most active pub we enjoyed that night at reasonable prices. Carbonation was average to soft but the creamy head was super.
