Irish stouts are tricky beers, they promise the tastiness of stout with the joys of a session beer. Uncle Steve's manages to live up to the promise of this style; a big stout flavour with low ABV. Solid.

Flavour on this is fairly standard stout formula of roasted malts (not overly aggressive, but definitely roasted) with chocolate undertones. Definite side fruity elements (lighter) add some interest in the middle and are unusual for the style. Nice crisp finish.

Irish stouts are rarely as robust as their bigger brethren, but Uncle Steve's provides plenty of interest for its unaggressive profile. A tasty winter session option.

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Black with a half finger mocha head, decent lacing.

Smell - Very roasty, spent coffee grounds, chocolate, nuttiness very similar to walnuts.

Taste - Nice combination of the darker flavors, molasses and spent coffee grounds right at first. Very subtle hop character, but, the end of the beer has a pleasant smoky character. You get a meshing of flavors that creates a woody, char like taste to finish this off.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation, medium bodied, crisp/clean feeling and smooth.

Overall - Good beer. Not a very heavy beer but this beer still has a nice flavor profile. Being a lighter beer you get more of a refreshing mouthfeel that is crisp, but not so heavy and full like a stronger stout.
