Irish Dry Stout |  4.20% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
We produce a traditional styled Irish Stout that is served using beer gas to produce that familiar creamy pore. This is the same system that draft Guinness uses. Our black stout has a roasted malt flavour and a hint of toasted walnuts and chocolate in the finish. Select imported hops are used to dry out the finish of this ale.

A- Really like the Nitro charged can! Pours a midnight black with an incredible head that is very Guinness like. The head itself is eggshell colored....very dense like a mousse. I cant tell how the carbonation is as it's much too dark. The lacing is most excellent.....very thick and creamy foam that clings for it's life to the side of my pint glass and the retention is top notch....it ends up looking like snow capped mountains!

S- Very nice aromas of burnt malts immediately upfront! There is plenty to smell, including rich dark chocolate, espresso beans, dark molasses, almost burnt toast and slightly scorched Earth. There is notes of a slight bitter finish but nothing to get excited about.

T- Simply put, this is a very tasty stout! I would put this a little drier than Guinness by comparison, closer to Beamish. Flavors that follow the aromas include dark chocolate, burnt brown sugar, toffee/dark molasses and espresso beans. There is an Earthy finish that reminds me of what I think rich soils would taste like, not that I enjoy eating soil lol. Very nice stout indeed!

M/O- This is a full bodied brew with a very creamy texture, due to the nitro induced can! This is a very well rounded dry stout that can compete with the best of them....I think it would be great with a meal...stew perhaps, but does really well on it's own. I would most definitely go out of my way for this again when looking for a stout and highly recommend it!

Now this is a good stout.

Pours pure black with a robust rocky tan head. Lacing is expansive. Fresh roasted espresso beans and high cocoa dark chocolate explode in the aroma. The taste is equally rich with a deep roastyness and some smokey hints. Caramel and milk chocolate are noticeable in the middle. Astringent black malt flavors show in the finish. Hops are like throughout, providing some earthy flavors and a decent bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is thick and moderately carbonated.

This is a fantastic stout, it really puts mainstream stouts like Guiness and Beamish to shame. Thick and substantial stuff.

On tap at Victory Cafe.

Poured a dark black colour with thick white head that stuck around for quite a while.

Nose was somewhat sweet roasted malts.

Taste was roasted malts with a nice toasted flavour to it - almost like some toated pine nuts or something (difficult to pinpoint the toasted flavour exactly but it added such a great element to the beer). Some coffee in the roasted malts, but not enough to suggest that there was an abundant coffee flavour.

Amazing mouthfeel. Thick, smooth, sikly, elegant.

This is one of the best stouts I have had. 4.2% ABV is a little light, but it is probably the most drinkable stout I can think of.

Pint at the brewpub.

The beer arrives an extremely dark black with a creamy mocha head that's there for the duration. Great lace left in sheets on the side of the glass. Pleasing dry grain smell, as well as some roasted coffee. The grains reveal themselves in the flavour with a strong roasted barley taste. Hints of coffee and chocolate round things out perfectly and mellow a slightly bitter finish. Smooth mouthfeel with a moderate carbonation.

This is a solid entry in a style that sometimes struggles to impress, and I've marked it up as it compares very favourably to its peers.

Chocolaty with rich roasted flavours. Deep, rich, creamy, velvety smooth. Very nicely balanced. Quite dark, and rather good. I dig it.
