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.

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!

I've been thoroughly disappointed with many Mill Street beers throughout the years, it is very rare that I've ever been impressed by one, well, Cobblestone Stout is a ridiculously good dry stout. Guinness will always be in my heart as the best, and my favorite beer (go ahead beer geeks, laugh away!), this is the next best thing though.

Surprisingly balanced session able stout. Not sure if unpasteurized locally -- it if it is, we have a "Guinness in Dublin" style bragging rite thing.

Been a while since I've had this, so it was nice to see it on the shelves, albeit in cans.

Nitro pour. Settles into a dark chocolate - black in colour, impenetrable. Thick tan head, great retention, lots of lacing.

Nose is hard to detect, but you get a bit of roasted malt, coffee, caramel.

Decent stout, nothing spectacular, but a solid canned brew. Roasty malt, coffee, a bit if sweet malt, dry toasted grain finish.

Watery, somewhat creamy, pretty typical for nitro can stuff.

Will probably make a regular appearance in the fridge, though it's nothing spectacular. Just a decent canned stout.

440 ml nitro can purchased and consumed in Nova Scotia.
Pours essentially black with a very durable tan head.
Smooth light body with ample but soft carbonation.
Aroma: dark roasted grains with char and a hint of dark fruits.
Flavor: dark roasted grains with light hops and hints of smoke, char, and coffee.

Overall: lots of dark roast flavor in a low ABV stout.

Black pour. Slight tan head, lacy.
Vanilla, chocolate with some hint of coffee aroma.
Tastes much the same with a bunch of smoke.
Mouth feel is pretty much expected of a stout. A little light for my palate.
Overall, a very nice stout.

A full English pint, on nitro-tap at the brewpub in Hogtown.

This beer appears a solid black, with very slight reddish cola basal edges, and one pudgy finger of languid creamy tan head, which leaves some stellar roiling sea-spray lace around the glass as it oh-so-slowly slips away.

It smells of dry chocolate, toasted bready and caramel malt, a faint wheaty graininess, nutty coffee, a soft black fruitiness, and weak earthy, musty hops. The taste is more lightly roasted caramel malt, bittersweet chocolate, ethereal coffee notes, a dark oily nuttiness, a bit of indistinct orchard fruitiness, and some lulling earthy, softly leafy hops.

The carbonation is mild, bordering on ineffectual, the body a decent medium weight, smooth beyond recall, and duly creamy. It finishes with a pleasant drying trend, as per the style, with lingering hints of the cocoa, java, and fruit that were.

A rather decent session stout, with just enough sweetness, not overwhelming, and deftly balanced. Such a pleasant upgrade from Guinness, I just don't know where to start. Oh wait, I just finished.

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.

I like the roastiness. A step above guiness in my books

Creamy nitro head on the pour, light brown head, dark brown liquid. Roasty malt nose with a nice light smoke aroma with a little mike chocolate. Smooth and light carbonation on the palate with some coffee and chocolate notes albeit light. Not very much bitterness from hops at all. Finishes smooth and with a bitter chocolate/coffee flavor, very easy to drink this in quantity...one of my faves here.
