Like tackling the Knockmealdowns in a blizzard, this beer is not for vimps. Our evolution of the traditional Irish Stout, it ressembles a Victorian-era Irish Porter and provides complex dark malt charateristics with distinctive espresso flavours. Without the weight of a Stout, the Porter is well rounded with mellow English hops. This robust malt-driven ale balances dark malts with some old world bitter hops. It won't weigh you down like a Stout and offers a rich chocolaty aroma with a burst of espresso. Perfect for a cooler evening : Year round in Ireland.

    330 ml capped bottle. Poured in the original 8° stemmed glass an unfiltered and hazy rich burgundy, close to black, coloured Porter with a good one finger tan and creamy foamy head that had a very long retention and tons of micro bubbles. Soft carbonation. Some lacing. The aroma is a powerful coffee with milk feeling, spicy notes, vanilla, licorice and hints of chocolate. The flavour is a big coffee mug on a solid roasted malts backbone, chocolate and a coffeish bitterness. The mouthfeel is crispy, light sparkling, coffeish and smooth. The texture is oily. This medium bodied Porter has a dry coffeish and bitter finish. A characterful Porter, with a real Irish spirit, from Michelstown. I like it.
