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.

On tap at the Mill Street location at Pearson Airport, of all places.

Beer is black with a nice cascading effect. Large, light tan head.

Not much of a scent. Could be the nitro delivery or the fact that the beer is still a bit cool. Slight roasted malt scent. Fine but very faint.

Pretty good flavour. Lightly roasted malt, some vanilla and a touch of chocolate. Slightly bitter finish.

The nitro delivery rather dominates the beer. Very creamy, medium bodied and low carbonation.

Overall, really nothing special about this one. Fine but not that enjoyable. I didn't finish the pint.

Mill St. Brewery 'Cobblestone Stout' Draught @ 4.2% , served from a 440 ml nitro-can purchased for $3.00

A-pour is very 'Guinness' like frothey , dark , & cascading. Leaving a near black in the glass with some crimson red peeking thru a big frothey tan head that is leaving a spotty lace along the pint

S-mild smell of barley

T-dark malts , some smoke/charred barley on the palate

MF-ok/good carbonation , medium body , feels bigger

Ov-so similar to Guinness Draught in a nitro-can , just not in the same class or glass

Poured from a 440 mL can into a pint glass.

Thick, black appearance. Could not see any light through it. 1 finger of thick, tan head, which lasted several minutes, settling very slowly. Even after a while, there was still a 1/3 inch of head hanging around.

Wonderful smell! Hints of dark berries over some chocolate odours, perhaps some coffee-ish nuttiness, too. Multiple dimensions to the smell -- very inviting!

Taste: Coffee flavours are predominant. In terms of bitterness, this is very mild. Maybe even too mild, for a beer. It's almost like I'm drinking a thickened/creamy, chilled, mild coffee. The taste is also a bit nutty.

Mouthfeel is on the thick side, being very creamy, with almost no detectable carbonation.

Overall, I have to say that, even though dark, less-bitter beers like this are my preference, I find this lacking tang or bitterness. I wouldn't buy this again, given other options available to me, but if this were the only thing on a restaurant menu besides bitter alternatives (Pale Ales, etc.), I'd order it.

Extremely dark, nearly opaque copper-black. Faint wispy tan foam cap.

Rich aroma, with strong vanilla, some chocolate and espresso, hints of toffee and dark fruit. Good stuff.

Strong rich chocolate malt taste, with caramel, hints of vanilla, a very well-balanced drying finish with assertive roastiness and pleasant hops. Seems slightly on the sweet side for the style, but that's fine with me.

Gorgeously smooth mouthfeel, no doubt thanks to the nitro-can. Feels much thicker and fuller-bodied than it actually is.

This is really good stuff, an outstanding dry stout with a good combination of complexity and drinkability.

On draft at Mill Street, Toronto Pearson Airport.

Sandstone nitro head over ruby black.
Mild coffee, smoke, molasses, and grain sack nose.
Dark chocolate, roasty bite, then slight branchy hops.
Mocchacino finish and dry linger.
Thin, soft, slight cling.

Roasty hit and that's it. Watery, too. No depth or intricacy.

Lame.
