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.

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.

Pours a deep, dark body with a very creamy head. The scent hits you with coffee, chocolate, smokiness, and vanilla sweetness, a really nice deeply malted beast. The taste is creamy, bitter, smoky, and coffee-like, but in a non-artificial way that really covers the whole palate. The feel is velvety soft, and works very well considering it is such a light stout. Overall another great show from Mill Street!

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.

A very solid and enjoyable "easy" drinking stout. It reminds me of Guinness but with more flavour and slightly more complexity. I was t expecting too much but I was pleasantly surprised. I'll buy it again!

I am beginning to sound like a proselyte, I know, but I am a huge fan of the BCCA after attending the Spring Thaw 2016 show in Mechanicsburg last weekend! I really thought that it was just going to CANsist of looking at CANtiques, but I was elated to find out that people bring current micros for sale/trade/share, including this one & one other Mill Street from a couple who also sold me a belt & buckle. I am now BCCA # 34897.

From the CAN: "Our nitrogen-charged dry stout is an exercise in smooth. With deep-roasted smoky palate and a crisp, lingering hop note on the finish this is a stout-lover's stout. Traditionally lower in alcohol, our brewers have brought this classic pub ale directly to you."; "Draught"; "This beer has been pasteurized."

Wahoo! There is nothing like the Phhsshht! of an N2 CAN charging up! Even the lightest Glug caused a cascade, producing two fingers of dense, light-tan head with fantastic retention. Color was Black/Opaque (SRM = 44), allowing ZERO light penetration. Nose was lightly smoky, lightly semi-sweet chocolate with a light sour tang. Hmm. Mouthfeel was big and creamy as you might expect. The taste was more akin to chocolate ice cream, especially given the mouthfeel. It was more sweet than I usually get from the style, but it was still tasty. Finish had a light smokiness, but I would characterize it as semi-sweet, overall. This was a worthwhile find & score, but I would have to agree that Guinness remains the flagbearer for the style.

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!
