If you’re looking for an Easter treat, how about some Porterhouse Chocolate Truffle stout? I gather it’s their spring special and it’s a beauty. It’s smooth, bittersweet, and seems to have a hint of mint about it.
We tried it a couple of weeks ago when we were looking for the legendary Galway Hooker, without luck. The rather diffident bar man didn’t say whether they’d run out, or never took delivery, or give any explanation whatsoever. There just wasn’t any, full stop. Perhaps it was at another bar and the effort of explaining this was just too much for him. You only get a two second window to order a drink on a Saturday night at the Porterhouse, after all.
