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 ...

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2004 Strong fresh ground coffee aroma, extreamlly smooth and creamy mouthfeel, medium delicate body, the roasted flavour is amazing not a robust beer but a great light refreashing stout.

On tap at Fraunces Tavern in NYC. Opaque black with reddish hints and creamy head. Roasted coffee and malt on nose. Smells delicious, and taste follows through with rich, classic porter flavors, coffee, burnt caramel, toffee. Could drink this all through a winter’s day. Among the best porters around at this abv.

Nitro @ Porterhouse, Covent Garden. I really like this. Black , velvety porter with chocolate and coffee malts on the nose, creamy/velvet in mouth and more chocolate/coffee on the finish. Very satisfying

Pint on tap at the Porterhouse Brewing Co., Temple Bar, Dublin. Deep brown, nearly black colour, with a thick and silky smooth pale head. It has a very strong roasted barley aroma, and this is also the first noticeable flavour. There are powerful notes of dark chocolate and espresso, with a hint of fresh cream. It leaves an aftertaste of mountain stream water, in that it is crisp and refreshing, but with strong tannin notes. The flavour lingers, and it is pleasantly smooth on the palate. An exceedingly good beer.

Brown in colour, beige head. Some honey and chocolate in aroma. Taste of dark caramel, well balanced with fine hops.

The last beer from my 3 days session in London. Black coloured, medium sized brown head. Mild roasted malt, chocolate and coffee taste with notes of smoke and dark fruit. Very smooth and enjoyable porter.

Thx. to Sebletitje for this one. 33 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Finally another dry stout from Ireland, if this stuff is any good – there will be finally a rebuttal to people who keep insisting that Guinness is at the very least the best in its style. I assume any beer can claim to a bogus beer style and profess to excel in it regardless of the quality of the beverage. Pours a brown, light black. Smells sweet with candy, caramel, dark sugar, pie, toffee and fresh coffee. Tastes of sweet caramel, toffee, liquorice, herbs, pie, dark sugar and fresh coffee. Body is a tad lighter. Bit surprise, very lovely & easy going beer. A fine dry stout at least.

Pours black with an off white/ brown head, aroma of chocolate, slight coffee and sweet. Taste is chocolate, dark fruits and coffee. No real taste of roasted malts, very nice porter.
