"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.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2010 More black (absolut black) and stronger than a Guiness, and has also a intense aroma of hop. The impression is to drink a barley-water beer, an so is a strange experience.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 A strong roasted, dry and bitter taste. Looked excellent as it was black, thick with a creamy white head as dry stouts should be. Smelled excellent too. m favourite dry stoout.

8/20/2009: Wrasslers XXXX Stout... Aroma: Sweet anise, cocoa/dark chocolate, dark fruits. Appearance: Brilliant deep ruby brown with a large and foamy tan-colored head. Flavor: Deep cooked apples and pear, heavily caramelized malts, a bit of char; dark and semi-sweet chocolates; mineral-like quality. Palate: Medium-bodied, average palate. Overall: Decent; a nice return to the traditional stouts...

On Tap at the Porterhouse, Parliament Street Dublin 23/08/2008 Lots of roast aroma. Small beige head. Black smooth on the palate and strong in alcohol initially with a slight sweetness leading to a crisp very bitter and dry lasting burnt roast and oat finish.

From tap at Charlies. Pours pitch black with a creamy chocolate brown head. Aroma is of chocolate and liqourice. Smooth and creamy body. Bitter and roasted malt flavoured with a distinct liqourice acidic touch. Bitter and citric flavoured finish. Lingering smooth roasted note into the far finish. Bitter and roasted lasting impression.

On tap at The Porterhouse, Dublin 5/7/09. Aroma: Subtle, earthy hops. Appearance: Opaque black with tan, creamy head. Flavor: Dry and roasty up front with a lingering bitterness of Kent Goldings. Palate: Heavy flavor, but dry. Overall Impression: The best Irish stout Ive had, bar none. Great late hop flavor. I would suggest trying this alongside their Plain Porter. The rather bland Plain will make you appreciate what a fine beer this is.

[2152-20090515] Tap. Mild peas (whats with Porterhouse peas anyway?) and mild toast aroma. Dark brown black body with a medium-lasting foamy light tan head. Grainy roast flavour finishes richly with roasted malt. Dry medium-full body. Average.
