COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Faricy-Fest Irish Stout
Our award-winning Irish Stout, fashioned after Guinness on tap in Ireland, is light and dry with a dense, creamy head. Ours is accented by a noticeable roasted coffee flavor, and a touch of bittersweet chocolate.

Pours deep brown with notes of light malt that drive into a very dry and roasted mouthfeel and smooth finish.

Bottle at home, rated against BJCP 2008 guidelines. Aroma: coffee, chocolate, hint of burnt toast. Appearance: almost black, very thin tan head. Taste: sharp up front, black coffee, small hint of chocolate, alcohol warming. Palate: creamy and smooth, medium-heavy body, medium-low carbonation. Overall: very well balanced, coffee-roasted-creamy stout, pretty good for the style.

I should have had this before the porter. This is an excellent dry stout, but it underwhelms after the crazy-good porter. Drier and more bitter than the porter.

Guinness but better. Darkish brown with more of a small lacing than a head. A bit flat with a malty thickish mouth feel. Very creamy with roosted nuts and the standard coffee. Sharp bitter finish. Straight forward and tasty.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a deep brown bordering on black. Thin tan head and some pretty decent lacing. Nose brings roasted malt, coffee, hints of chocolate, some woody character, and a bit of nuttiness. Taste is mostly comprised of roasted malt but some coffee and smoke also exist. Feel is dry with good carbonation. Drinks pretty well and is a good example of the style. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-11-2010
