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.

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.

I had this at the Victory Cafe in Toronto.

A: Black with a creamy, off-white head; good retention, nice lace.

S: Dry roastyness & bread.

T: Bread, coffee & nut. Balanced bitterness. Pleasant, but a little plain (not surprising, considering the weight).

M: Dry, somewhat chalky but creamy; modest carbonation. Impressive for its weight.

D: Good drinkability.

Enjoyed at the new brewpub. Very dark yet clear, with ruby highlights and a dense, tan head from the nitro pour. Thick lacing through the first half of the pint. Roasty aroma with coffee and chocolate notes. It also smells a bit acidic. Mild bitterness with chocolate and roast. Some acidity towards the end. Light bodied with low carbonation and a dry finish. This is a very easy drinking stout, quite good for a session.

Pours a dark reddish brown, thick and short tan head forms, nice spiral lacing, good retention. Smell is sweet, roasty, some chocolate and coffee, quite nice. Taste was sweet, some vanilla and chocolate, roast, nice sour finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied with low carbonation, very creamy and smooth. Served much too cold, had to wait a while for the beer to improve, but definately a drinkable stout.

on-tap at the new brewpub. A bit of malt aroma, tad of roast. Some sweetness, roast barley. Late kick of coffee and chocolate in mild dose. Kind of a mild Guiness, and no where near the thickness or strength of taste of the American stout I am so used to and fond of. Watery.

Dark, dark mahognay brown. Solid, long-lived head that eventuallt settles to a heavy film and gives up curtains of lace.

Aroma is dry and full of chocolate and nutty grain. Great flavours of chocolate and coffee, though clearly dominated by chocolate. Full, smooth mouthfeel. Clear cousin to Mill Street's Coffee Porter but with more character and dimension.

Worth a trip to Toronto's Distillery District for a glassful of this one along with some of their other brews.
