Pint at Porterhouse Temple Bar, Dublin (€4.90):
Opaque black with a thumb-sized, creamy & beige head with great retention.

Strong bitterness, coffee & toasted notes with caramel backing them up. Some milk chocolate & earthy notes feature with some grain & touches of sweetness.

Bitter tasting with some coffee & chocolate, touches of milk & sweetness plus burnt toast, grain & earthy malts with caramel too.

Smooth with only hints of grain. Lightly carbonated & sweet with a dry finish & bitterness that lingers at the end.

Not a bad effort from Porterhouse but not quite up to the standard set by their Oyster Stout that I tried previously, mainly due to the fact that the bitterness was a little overpowering but it was enjoyable at least.

Wrasslers 4x Stout, 330 ml, 5.6%.
Totally black in colour, two finger rich light brown head, great retention, lasting > half finger cap.
Really smells 4x, very rich malts: nice clear dark chocolate, big roast, coffee, burnt sugar, pinch of salt, faint dry prunes (with a faint bit of smoke) and dark spices.
Sweeter than the nose led me to believe, but just for a bit, in the start, with milky chocolate, caramel and molasses. Roasted malts follow immediately and dominate the rest of the brew. Strong roasted, burnt even, malts, strong espresso, very rough, with a lingering charcoal bitterness that you get from your first sip and sticks till the last drop of this beer. A bit of enriching saltiness, faint figs and some lemon zest way in the back. Very low hop presence.
Medium body and carbonation, somewhat dark-lagerish, which is weird. Dry ashy malts all the way.
This was an extreme stout, wouldn't really call it tasty, but definitely rich and rugged. A nice exercise, but wouldn't drink two of these in a row.
