Un "plain porter" qui reçoit deux fois la médaille d’or du "best stout" .. il y a de quoi vous faire perdre votre latin .. mais comme on est en Irlande, il n’y a pas trop de latin !! Niveau abv de 5 % (pour les bouteilles, et 4,3 pour les keg ..). Porter donc artisanal de Dublin en small batches, avec 4 malts et 3 houblons comme indiqué sur le site. Mon exemplaire était à 2 mois après sa date. Couleur noire à reflets marrons, et à l’opacité très forte. Mousse brun moyen, crémeuse stable à 2 mm. Arômes de ganache, chocolat noir, café moka pur. 1ère bouche souple à la magnifique entame malt torréfié, brindilles de bois au feu. Arrière-bouche avec chocolat noir et fèves de cacao. 2ème au splendide ensemble café/chocolat/liqueur de café. Arrière-bouche avec pointe de baies noires remarquable. 3ème d’une grande finesse, superbes saveurs. Arrière-bouche longue et fine. Longueur au superbe développement avec une harmonie imparable. Jambes huileuses,, longues. Levure douce, fine, belle ligne. Alcool correct, il travaille magnifiquement sur l’ensemble, malgré son niveau. Finale délicieuse. CONCLUSION : un très grand "plain porter" qui n’a pas volé ses médailles, même si elles portent le nom d’un autre style … Mais l’important est ce qu’il y a dans le verre, et pas sur l’étiquette ...

Pints from tap at the brewpub in London. Pours a gorgeous black with a slightly off white head 2cm high; tiny bubbled, thick creamy nitrous head with the best retention I’ve ever seen on anything by a mile. I was so in love with the look and head of the beer that i didn’t immediately pick up on the unremarkable aroma and taste. The beer drinks quite one dimensional with only coffee notes and no complexity of roast or chocolate one may like. I’d session it for the look and palate alone
