Look is dark like a scotch ale! Smells like raisins and soap! Taste is bitter malts, and raisins. Fell is medium and chalky. Overall I’m thinking of drain pouring it!

On tap at the Porterhouse in Dublin. Pours clear and almost Amber with a thin head due to the pour. Leaves some lace. Nose is almost nothing in terms of hops. Feint earthy hops and some malt. Taste is bigger with a nice malt fruit and medium hop bitterness. Overall just okay.

I had it several times on tap at the porterhouse pub on parliament st., Dublin and just now in bottle, here, in France.
It was much better on tap. It was a real hop slam, really complex.
On tap I would say
L: 4 S: 4.5 T: 4.25 F: 4 O: 4.25

But today in bottle: a really promising smell, reminding me of the good days in Dublin but for the taste, the hops disapeared really quickly. Also the carbonation is too high.

So I would say, go on and try on tab in the brew pub but don't bother buying to drink it at home
