"Made to arecipe originally brewed by Deasys of West Cork in the early 1900s. This was Michael Collins favourite tipple - a stout like your gradfather used to drink. A fine fullsome stout, full in every way, a pungent aroma of late kettle hops. A generous quantity of roast grain for flavour, bitter with flaked barley producing that rich body."
Ingredients: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley; Galena, Nugget and East Kent Goldings hops.

puren (835) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - APR 16, 2016
Prezentacja:
czarne, obfita piana opada do grubej warstwy i pięknie firankuje;
Aromat:
średnio intensywny - rum, rodzynki, melasa, po zabełtaniu czuć zboże i nuty mleczne;
Odczucie:
ciało wysokie, wysoko nasycone, bardzo puszyste, finisz kwaskowy;
Smak:
wyraźny - palony na czekoladowy sposb, dosyć kwaśny i ta kwaśność bardzo długo się utrzymuje, bardzo powoli, i na chwilę, ustępuje krtkiej palonej goryczce, żeby znowu wrcić do głosu;
Oglnie:
bardzo zaskoczył mnie dublowy aromat, smak jest bardzo stoutowy, pobudzający, piwo też przyjemnie zachowuje się w ustach.

With the long tradition of producing excellent stouts my expectations for this one was set high, maybe too high. The roast aromas are there together with bready flavors. OK.
