3.28/5 rDev -12.1%
A slightly better than average stout.
I've had this in both the bottle and on tap (and also freshly from the brewer's taps). I prefer to avoid the bottle as it can be a totally different experience (one that the brewer could remedy with the purchase of a new bottling machine).
Normally this is a competent little beer that doesn't overwhelm you.
It pours black with a brown head that quickly dissipates.
Chocolate and roasted malts. The taste for fresher batches is more crisp. When the been has sat for a while (in the keg or the bottle), that crispness goes away.

Poured from the tap.
The beer is very dark, almost black in appearance. The smell is very clean and crisp, chocolate, and coffee. The taste is rich, you taste the oats right away, slightly sweet, with a clean roastiness and coffee aftertaste.
Would I buy it again? Yes.

12 oz. bottle served in a 3 Floyds imperial pint.
Black in color with brown highlights and a medium head which falls quicly to a ring. No lacing.
Sweet chocolate and roasted malt aroma is inviting.
Taste of milk chocolate and toffee with mellow roast malt. Mild, not bitter roast but with a good roast taste.
Smooth and creamy mouthfeel is thin to medium with light carbonation creating a very sessionable stout.
Overall a smooth, creamy and mellow brew that is easy to drink. I like this one. My first taste of Millstreet. Great job.

Acquired via trade from cpolking, so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler glass.
A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a short beige head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, a faint touch of hops but also a metallic quality.
T: The taste starts out very creamy with flavors of coffee, chocolate and roasted oats. The malt character is on the thin side for the style but it works well for this particular beer. The hops presence I mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, although there are others in the style that I would choose first, this is still a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

Tap into nonic
A: dark black, tan head that didn't stick around but that may be the bar's fault. Nice lacing
S: caramel, burnt sugar, cherries, citrus zest
T: sweet with sugary chocolate, moderate cherry flavors and a bit of tannic bitterness. Slight alcohol warmth.
M: medium with some syrupy sensation from
The sugars, medium dry finish
O: sweeter than I'd optimally like but the alcohol moderates. An ok brew.
