Style: Irish Dry Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

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.

most guiness like beer I've had so far, but with a blackberry sweetness on top that creates this flavour harmony.

Deep dark brown where no light passes. Beige head which lasts throughout the tasting. Some spots for lace.

More chocolate than coffee but the smell is very good. A touch of sweetness.

The flavor is very dry, however. There's a creaminess in both the body and flavor. The taste is closer to coffee than semisweet chocolate. A shorter aftertaste but it's still spot on flavor wise. I consider this one of the better dry stouts outside of Ireland.

Mill Street Brewery Cobblestone Stout my 200th beer review !!!!

Look: Awesome cascade effect when you poured it.

Smell: Chocolate, coffee, malted barley, hops.

Taste: Very soft, very creamy, very sweet also, some chocolate, coffee, rosted malt,

Feel: Watery, the flavor goes away pretty fast which is a bummer. Definitely a session stout.

So overall would I recommend it? Yes, very good stout and beer overall !

Like most here, I bought this in a can. Rich, profoundly deep brown capped by a generous, handsome caramel colored cream. The contrast reminds me of a dark roast espresso. Scent gives off a hint and mix of molasses, malt, caramel, chocolate and nuts. The taste is not overly complex. It's very low in bitterness (if any) with 4.2% alcohol by volume so it's not going to pack a punch. Overall, balanced and very smooth.

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.

From a can the pour is highly foamy that slowly constructs into a 3 finger khaki head, that last more than 20 minutes, has a very fine definition, and making creamy lacing. Extremely thick and creamy, almost looks like marble stone! (no joke) The beer is dark brown, almost black, opaque with no visual activity. Dominant malty sugars, with soft leafy spices. Flavors of wood, oysters, roasted dark malts, faint coffee and chocolate, soft molasses and caramel, and some herbal spices. Oily medium body with soft carbonation. Medium strength finish, a little spicy and peppery, lingering smoked malts with a light earthy feel of walnuts. A little watery and flat, lacks body, carbonation, and intensity. Doesn't feel very fresh like a bad English porter. The flavors are okay, but nothing special. Overall mediocre quality craft.
