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.

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.

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.

Toronto produced, traditionally style Stout. Smokelly. Notes of ground coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Label says Smooth and and it is! Nitrogenated, same device as Guiness.

I usually try to support local micros, but was glad to try this stout from YYZ (TO). The hint of toasted walnuts and chocolaty finish were superb. A great balance, and I'm surprised the BA sccore was not higher. Step aside Guiness ... oh, except that I can get Guiness almost anywhere.

Serving Type: 440 mL Nitro Can

A- Pours a Jet-Black Opaque liquid topped by a 3 finger Creamy off-white head. Insanely good retention. Tons of lacing.

S- Roasty Malt, Dark Roast Coffee, and a slight hint of Vanilla.

T- Same as the aroma but a more pronounced vanilla note.

M- Creamy Heavy Body and Low Carbonation.

O- An excellent Nitro Stout that has both a delicious aroma/taste but also a beautiful, creamy body. Top notch!
