Notes/Commercial Description:
Our twist on a classic Irish stout. Dry and smooth, this very sessionable stout comes in at 4.0% alcohol content. Our subtle addition is a touch of peat smoked malted barley. Smoked over a peat-fueled fire, this malt adds a layer of smokiness to the more traditional dark malt flavors. A taste of that smokiness is complimented with a smooth roasted finish. Slainte!

4/5  rDev +7.2%

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #68 (Spetember 2012):

LOOK: Nearly pitch black, healthy tan head,

SMELL: Firm smokiness, charred wood, dark chocolate, mild dark fruitiness, clean

TASTE: Dry body, bit of creaminess, very smooth, blanket of smoke, waves of charcoal, moderate hopping, yeast, nutty grain, bready, burnt toast, long smoky linger, very dry finish

A beer this small it could have easily been devastated with a slight overuse of smoked malt, great restraint here. All business with the smoke though yet the Irish side does not waver at all. Super drinkable with a bonus of smoke, what is not to like here?

On draft at The Ginger Man, NYC.

Poured a deep brown hue with a one finger foamy tan head. There was good retention and sticky lacing.

The smell featured soft roasted malts and a heavy earthy sweet smoke.

The taste consisted of roasted malts, charcoal and an earthy smokiness.

The mouthfeel was silky and soft.

Overall a delicious and delicately smoky dry stout.

This was the second of 2 biers I tried on 01DEC12. Standard shaker pint for $5.00.

Poured a dense, opaque black hue. Head was fine and thin, light tan in color, with ok lacing. Aroma was restrained, with roastiness present. Body was close to medium, yet still a touch on the thin side, though it felt ok going down.

Possessed lots of bitter roasty notes, with choco and coffee, plus a hint of espresso. The peat aspect was subtle yet still noticeable. Finished on the dry side, with more bitter qualities. Not bad... Prosit!!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a rich black with a finger of frothy tan head that falls slowly and leaves attractive lacing. Looks like a traditional Irish dry stout. Moderate peat smoke in the nose, roast malt, some bitter chocolate notes. Aroma right on for style.

Quite tasty; has good balance between roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate flavors; very faint bitter hops; restrained earthy smoked peat. Not a smoked sausage-bomb by any means. Finishes quite dryly.

Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Extremely easy drinking; quite sessionable. An exceptionally well-made example of this style.

Very solid stout from the brewery tap room. Dark and rich flavor and appearance, though not leaning in the coffee direction you find in a lot of the craft stouts. Peat adds a unique flavor that blends well and is nice on the nose. Thick like an Irish stout's supposed to be. Very good with some steak and potatoes.

It also has a low ABV, like many of the more widespread Irish stouts do.

Overall, a very good take on the classic Irish stout that stays true to the category but adds a unique (but not *too* unique) twist.
