"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.

bdleedahl (234) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 19, 2016
Dry stout, too bitter in my opinion. But a nice creamy mouthfeel with the nitrogen carbonation. All around slightly above average dry stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

josanguapo (1317) - SPAIN - OCT 12, 2016
In Teku glass. Watching Comando Actualidad: El Imperio de la Cerveza This is a good dry stout and not guiness. Good body, dry finish and a pleasant coffelike roastyness that isnt overwhelming. Very creamy head although a bit big, which requires serving in 2 steps

Grzesiek79 (4134) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Super dobry i wytrawny stout w starym stylu. Mimo wytrawnosci i szerokiej gamy chmielowej goryczy czuc palony slod ciemne owoce lesne. Likierowe piwo z chmielona glebia. Wyglad takze super, bezowa piana ladna srednio trwala i czarne ciemna jak bezgwiezdzista noc barwa. super do twardego sera dlugo dojrzewajacego
