Draft Pint at The Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London in Feb 2011 - Dark Brown in colour. Malty; roasty/burnt malts, lots of coffee, hint of chocolate. Hoppy; grassy hops. Roasty, rather burnt, malty with a distinct sour/bitter hop edge. Dry throughout. (2011-02-16)

Un "plain porter" qui reoit deux fois la mdaille dor du "best stout" .. il y a de quoi vous faire perdre votre latin .. mais comme on est en Irlande, il ny 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 indiqu sur le site. Mon exemplaire tait 2 mois aprs sa date. Couleur noire reflets marrons, et lopacit trs forte. Mousse brun moyen, crmeuse stable 2 mm. Armes de ganache, chocolat noir, caf moka pur. 1re bouche souple la magnifique entame malt torrfi, brindilles de bois au feu. Arrire-bouche avec chocolat noir et fves de cacao. 2me au splendide ensemble caf/chocolat/liqueur de caf. Arrire-bouche avec pointe de baies noires remarquable. 3me dune grande finesse, superbes saveurs. Arrire-bouche longue et fine. Longueur au superbe dveloppement avec une harmonie imparable. Jambes huileuses,, longues. Levure douce, fine, belle ligne. Alcool correct, il travaille magnifiquement sur lensemble, malgr son niveau. Finale dlicieuse. CONCLUSION: un trs grand "plain porter" qui na pas vol ses mdailles, mme si elles portent le nom dun autre style Mais limportant est ce quil y a dans le verre, et pas sur ltiquette ...

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 Ive ever seen on anything by a mile. I was so in love with the look and head of the beer that i didnt 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. Id session it for the look and palate alone

I may be fooled by the name of this beer, but to me this smells exactly like how I want my porters to smell like, i.e. plenty of chocolate and sweet chocolate sauce, and without the dark roasted ashy notes that I tend to pick up from dry stouts. I also get a generic fruitiness, and some dark berries and brown sugar in the back. The rather strong flavour follows the aroma, with additional dark caramel. Light sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. The mouthfeel is rather dry-stout-ish: light and thin, dry and a bit watery. Luckily the carbonation is pleasantly moderate. And, oh, its very deep brown, has a beige, long-lived head that leaves lots of lacings. A nice porterstout!
[33 cl bottle, 5% ABV, enjoyed 4 months before BB date, from Systembolaget Grda, Gteborg]
