"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.

On tap. Pours black and almost opaque with a dense and creamy light brown head leaving quite some lacework. Somewhat ashy aroma. Medium body, low carbonation, hard roasted malts - almost burned - some ashes and dark fruit with a malt bitter finish. A fairly serious Stout actually. 281110

Travlr (23631) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 Tap at Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown. Dark brown, brown head. Not much aroma. Very bitter and metallic, may be an infection. Unpleasant. I would try it again in a bottle to be sure, but this one is not working. 1.8 Second try, nitro. Very dark brown, huge thick briwn head, solid lacing. Arona of dark cocoa powder. Taste is bitter cocoa and burnt espresso. Much better.
