"Made to arecipe originally brewed by Deasy’s of West Cork in the early 1900’s. 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.

Taste malts, roasted malts, dark malts, heavy dark malt bitter, a touch of hop in there as well though the flavor is dominated by malt bitterness. Nice stout!

Lo primero que llama la atención de esta cerveza es su chapa, que se abre con una anilla, como si fuera una granada. Color marrón profundo, pràcticamente opaco. Fantástica formación de espuma de café, muy cremosa y de burbuja pequeña (muy pequeña). Muy persistente y con muy buena adherencia, dejando un espectacular encaje de Bruselas. Intensa en nariz, da inmediatamente notas de chocolate y café. Entre las notas afrutadas, da algo de pasas muy suave. También algunas notas de tierra seca. No aprecio notas florales, herbales ni especiadas (aunque la verdad es que tengo la nariz un poquito taponada). El primer sabor que viene es el amargo, siempre de la mano de un punto de acidez. Hay también desde luego una nota de dulce, pero es francamente suave. Peso medio en boca y textura crujiente y algo picante, debido al amargor del torrefacto. En el retrogusto sale caramelo de café y algunas notas ligeramente acres, pero sobre todo, pan muy tostado. Persistencia en boca muy larga, liderada siempre por el amargor proveniente de la malta torrefacta. Una cerveza intensa de sabor y con carácter, aunque dando un resultado muy satisfactorio. De trago medio, maridará bien con chocolate y con casi cualquier cosa que vaya bien con pan tostado.
