Big ups to newgeneric for not only finding this for me, but finding it in bottles! Holy cow am I stoked!
A-black body with a tan head that stays through out the beer.
S-nice smell of chocolate and coffee. Very pleasant
T-alot like it smells. Coffee upfront with a smooth chocolate finish. Very creamy
M-medium body with a nice smooth finish.
O-great beer. Wish it was around me!

Pours dark in body with a tan head that dissipates quickly.
Smells of roast malts, coffee, and chocolate.
Tastes of charred malt, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit.
Body is light and carbonation is crisp.
I thought this was a very nice stout, and highly drinkable at 6.8% ABV.

3.85/5 rDev -4%
Served at the Barley Oak in Mandeville, LA
Appearance: it took a long time get this beauty because the head just kept sitting there at the bar. After 10 minutes of so, the tan, 5 finger head finally crept down to a workable size. This brew is black, black with a Guiness Stout attitude. Major lacing.
Smell: chocolate and yeast dominate.
Taste: very similar to a Guiness Extra Stout; a take no prisoners taste that's rich and smooth. Smokey chocolate malts with a hop finish that doesn't bite.
Mouthfeel: thick and frothy. Makes your tongue sit up and take notice.
Overall: If you like kick-ass stouts, NOLA's Irish Channel will take you on in a knife fight for bragging rights. A mean, lusty drink for big boy tastes.

New Orleans Lager & Ale Brewing Company (NOLA) - Irish Channel Stout, poured into a Craftgeer snifter.
Look - Pours a thin viscosity motor oil brown black with a small head that doesn't retain much at all. Tiny amounts of lacing.
Smell - Backer's chocolate is the most prominent, some "green bean" roasted malts (I dunno, that's what I smell every time in this malt variety) and a dash of espresso and hops.
Taste - Creamy and zippy carbonated chocolate with a nice roast followed by espresso notes and finishing a dash of hops.
Mouthfeel - Light-heavy body with high carbonation. Real nice feel here it's got great balance. Mouthfeel and drinkability is phenomenal, a real quaffable beer.
Overall - What a surprise, such a flavorful non-imperial stout! Typically I've been more into imperials but this one rekindled the glame for the good old American Stout!
