Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is an American style stout that has sweet malt flavors of caramel and chocolate, complimented by a crisp bitterness produced by roasted barley and American Hops. The complex malt bill of pale and roasted malts result in this well balanced stout that is smooth, rich, dark and delicious! And watch out – ABV 6.8%!

A-dark brown with a large light brown head that leaves a huge head and a lace that clings to the glass
S-strong caramel malt with a slight roasted aroma
T-strong roast taste with the caramel malt coming in, but then you get a hop bitterness in the aftertaste that fades to a balance of hops, malt , and roasted taste
M-full body, sticky, and low carbonation
O-wow that was great. It has sweetness, it has hops, and it has roasting. Love It!!

NOLA Irish Channel Stout has a thin, beige head, a deep, dark brown appearance, bubbles clinging to the glass, and some thin lacing left on the glass. The aroma is faint, but one can detect roasted malt and some sort of sweet cream. Taste is of sweet, dark-roasted barley malt, char, acidity, some bitterness, and a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel is light to medium and a bit slick, and NOLA Irish Channel Stout finishes mostly dry, a bit powdery, rich, and decently drinkable. No alcohol detected with this beer.

The roasted barley taste is heavy, which is not a bad thing. The chocolate is very subtle. Tastes/smells/feels like a stout and it's great in a can--except it should have nitro. Better on tap. Nola Brewing should barrel-age this beer. Sold in four-packs of one pint cans.
