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.

Poured very dark with a light tannish head. It smelled of coffee with hints of chocolate, and tasted more of the same, only slightly bitter at the end. It felt heavy on the palette. It was quite drinkable for a heavy stout. A great St. Patty’s Day alternative to those big brands out there!

I love supporting smaller stouts, but I’d still choose Guinness. However, so many are thin, and not nearly as creamy as their descriptions eagerly describe. This one was no different.

tap at brewpub - Pours very dark brown with a chocolate and dark roast malt aroma. The roast malt flavor has some good chocolate and coffee notes. The medium to full bodied brew has gentle carbonation and a lingering, lightly bitter finish. Good stout.

Deep brown with a ruby low-light, looks a touch watery with some transparency at the upper edge. Coffee roast aroma. Flavor finds vinegar, roasts and coffee and is (as I’d guessed) uber-thin. This supposedly won Gold at the World Beer Championships. Glad I didn’t get the opportunity to sample a Bronze-winner.

Dogbrick (7567) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2007
Sample at the brewpub: Pours pitch black with a thin light beige head. Spotty lacing. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Medium, smooth body with a nice roasted coffee character, along with some malt and chocolate flavors. The finish is creamy and sweet yet it leaves a fairly bitter coffee aftertaste behind. Not too shabby.

Sammy (8348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2007
At the brewpub.A standard all-year stout and its a very decent one, although no oatmeal or RIS on today. Lots of head and lace on black. Bit burnt on purpose, bold expresso and chocolate. A good coffee. Appropriate carbonation as is true on their entire lineup. Medium plus mouthfeel.

On tap at the pub. Poured black with a tan head. Aroma seemed very roasty and a little chocolatey. Not really any noticable hops. Not bad.

Pours a clear dark brown color with a ring of light brown lace. Aroma of Irish liquor and chocolate. Good flavor of chocolate, toasted bread , roasted malt and Irish liquor with a bitter and smoky finish. The body is light to medium and the carbonation is moderate. A very interesting stout.
