Poured a very dark brown, almost black.

Smelled of toasted malts with a bit of chocolate. Clean and mellow, with a bit of sweetness to it.

Tasted like rich, toasted malts and slightly sweet. It had a hint of underlying hop. Very rich, but a very well done porter.

Would I buy it again? Definitely.

500ml bottle bought from GapWines, Belfast

Poured a deep dark brown / almost completely black colour. Burnt brown head poured pretty thick, foamy and meringue like then faded to light covering with thick edging... some light lines of lacing cling to the glass...

Aroma - Toasted bread and lightly roasted malts, nice light smokiness coming through, black coffee, some dark brown sugar sweetness, roasted nuttiness, liquorice and blackcurrant, some raisin fruitiness, very light oatiness, leathery hints...

Taste - Nice lightly roasted dark chocolate maltiness mixed with light sweetness, charred malt loaf, anise, definite coffee notes, again some dark fruits (prunes, plums), light nutmeg traces, some pepperiness...

Feel - Smooth initially then a little sharpness comes through... pretty full bodied...very drinkable at only 4.8%

Overall - An excellent porter from another fine Irish brewery... highly recommended

500ml bottle from Reillys, Lisnaskea (£2.50):
I would have preferred the coconut to be a little more pronounced in the taste of this one and to at least be detectable on the nose but other than that this one was a fairly decent effort and something a little different that is well worth picking up should you come across a bottle.

A very nice Porter from Kinnegar. It lacks a bit of depth and thickness that Black Butte Porter does for example. However, saying that most brewers add too much chocolate and spoil it by over doing an element or two. Kinnegar have kept this well balanced in aroma and taste. This Porter is the black sheep in their taps so its great to see them pull off another style that is much different than their ales. Well done!
