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.

Draft at brewpub. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma of ash and dark roasted malts. Medium bodied with soft to medium carbonation. Flavor of black patent malts, cocoa power, and coffee grounds countered by a balancing, but not aggressive bitterness. Dry roasty finish.

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown almost opaque with creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet and smoky and big alc presence, flavor is like a espresso, coffee liquor, off-dry roast, interesting. Medium to light body with active cabonation. Interesting.

ansermadide (1518) - Kyle, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2008
From 10-Beer Flight at Arbor Brewing Company Brewpub on December 1, 2008. Deep dark with a red tint. I don’t smell anything. Bad nose, I suppose. A very light bodied stout, almost watery, but had a lovely flavor. Serious coffee-espresso flavor – so much so that it’s almost smoky. Easy aftertaste – just enough hops to carry the flavor as it goes down.

on nitro-pours a tan head that laces and black color. Aroma is rich dark malt-coffee, roasty/peat, hint of sharpness. Taste is sweet, rich dark malt-coffee, roasty/peat, hint of sharpness from hops. Slight ashy and semi dry finish. Smooth, soft carbonation.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2008
In short: A basic roasted stout. No complexity but still highly drinkable
How: Tap (nitro) at brewpub
The look: Black body with a medium beige head
In long: This highly drinkable stout doesn’t offer much more than smooth roasted malts flavour. Not much fruity notes here or coffee or whatever. The hops dry out the beer but doesn’t provide much flavour and/or bitterness. Well balanced nonetheless. Highly roasted malts, maybe a distant light chocolate taste and that’s about it. Despite its simplicity this was a rather enjoyable pint. The mouthfeel is pleasant, it’s got plenty of malts and the pleasant roastiness and dryness made it a session beer that you cannot get tired of. Those qualities makes it lack of complexity very forgivable. As simple and effective as a “get lost” answer to a “Haven’t I seen you somewhere before?” line.

Just had this on tap at the brewery, Very nice dark color with off white head, lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma, and almost a bit smokey on the finish. very tasty, and much better than it’s irish counterpart.
