"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.

    I imagine that this should be the standard for this style of stouts. Near perfect appearance. Sweet chocolate malty flavor...creamy texture. My second sample from porterhouse which i liked better than their oyster stout. This is a beer that i would get again for sure.

    Here's one I'd go back to often if it weren't for the hefty price tag. Complex aroma and flavor of malted chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruit, and slight smoke and licorice. There's a slight twangy creaminess that adds to the body but takes away just a touch from the still great aroma and flavor. Best Porterhouse I've had. Why couldn't the oyster stout be like this?

    I picked this up from the Wine Gourmet in Roanoke, VA. I was concerned this wouldn't live up to the price point. I am SO happy I paid the money. This beer is fantastic - it tastes like Europe. Smoky, dry, old ... malty. It is really nostalgic inasmuch as it takes you to a time where salty dock workers and porters gather in an old Irish Pub or English Ale House for a stout or porter after work. This beer is wonderful!

    A great brew! .. pours out black, good amount of foam .. rich and flavourful for a dry stout, has a nice level of roast, complex too .. . another winner by PH .. . By tattling on your friends, you're just telling them that you're a tattletale. Now is that the tale you want to tell?

    Pours a deep, warm, chocolaty sable with a nice thick light tan head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma is smoky and oily with a firm, slightly sweet mocha undertone. Flavor is like fine roast coffee with an infusion of chocolate, slightly sweet, slightly bitter, hint of licorice. Texture is fizzy, smooth and just slightly grainy.

    Draught@Porterhouse, London. Black colour, mediumsized brown creamy and thick head. Aroma is roasted malts, very dark chocolate and some caramel. Flavour is big roasted malts, some dark chocolate and strong coffee and fudge. Really wellbalanced and pleasant to drink. Roasted nice aftertaste.
