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 very good stout from close to home. Black, as it should be, one finger of head. Chocolate, and, almost a port smell to it.
Easy to drink, enjoyable stout.
Recommend.

[Served on tap 12/1/14]
A: [4.25] Jet black with awesome nitro head. Great cascading on the glass. Beautiful retention and lacing.
S: [3.75] Coffee, chocolate, malts
T: [3.75] Follows the nose but with s nice hit of sweetness.
M: [3.50] A little watery, but to be expected for a 4.2% abv. Still has the creaminess of a nitro stout.
O: [3.75] Really nice stout. Smooth and creamy. Complex flavors.

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!

A really nice, low abv stout. Pours black with a light khaki head - not much lace. Aroma of cocoa and roasted malt. Taste is pretty standard for the style, with maybe a touch more chocolate and smoked malt character. Nitrogen charge lends to a creamy feel, while not muting flavor / aroma. Right up there with Creemore Springs Lager and Detour IPA as my favorite Canadian craft brews so far -
