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.

I received it as a gift. I don't like receiving beer as a gift, as it always backfires. It's never from another discriminate beer drinker. I mean Mill Street. Come on. But it's the thought that counts. The intent was good.
Shook the can a bit (since it says nitro, but no, they don't say that on the can), "A stout lover's stout" is what they do say.
Folks: never believe an advertisement that claims superiority. Superior products don't need that kind of advertisement.
Pours nitroish, with a decent head. The nose is heavy on smoke, due I guess to the roasted barley. Also smells of detergent initially, but this goes away. The taste is water with bitterness. Very thin. Obviously the nitro doesn't help this. Very off putting taste after a sip or two and that detergent is still there in the body.
Whether you like stouts or not, stay away from this. There are so many better choices.

Pours a jet black with a finger of creamy tan head

Smells of walnuts, roasted malt, and just a hint of dark challenge

Taste is dominated by the roasted malts, which is great. The nuttiness comes through as well as some light coffee flavours. Feels smooth and creamy just like any nitro stout should

Overall a nice beer. Nothing amazing but something I would have more than once

Not much smell, The can sort of exploded on opening, had to hold sideways and fully open pouring it out. I managed without too much of a mess, but an interesting introduction to a beer. It had a good head, and the famous descending bubbles. Not much smell, but fairly smooth drinking with a moderate bitterness.

Nitro can
Nice nitro widget waterfall head, tan creamy rich head, good retention nice soapy lacing, very dark basically black color

Nose nitro, mostly just nitro gas, light chocolate, some dark fruits little fig like, bit of smokey roasty

Taste again nitro creamy flavor dominates, then mild roast and Smokey note, little dark fruity, and hint of chocolate, fair coffee and cream, mild bitterness

Mouth is med bod but super creamy nitro bubbles

Overall eh, it's not bad but nothing special, basically just a boring stout overpowered by nitro

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dense off white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of dark, roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has a lot of flavors of dark malts with a bit of roast and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and dry on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't really that creamy or smooth compared to other beers in the style that are served on nitro.

Serving type: nitro-can

I had this from a 440 ml can, purchased in Ottawa, Canada. It was average. Any bitterness is so subtle that it was almost unnoticeable. I found nothing particularly special about this beer. Well, it was very foamy.

Serving: On tap

Pours an opaque black with tight creamy tan head. Nice nitro lacing. (4)

Lightly roasty some sweet coffee hints. (3.5)

Follows the nose, light milk chocolate, weak coffee. (3.75)

Light and drinkable with a little malty oomph. (3.75)

A nice, straightforward stout. Nothing spectacular but pretty on point as far as what I would expect from a beer like this. (3.75)

Black with a bold creamy nitro head. Inviting roasted malt and coffee nose. Medium malt body with a silky-smooth feel and dry finish. Good flavour.
