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.

Another wonderful beer by Arbor Brewing Company. I prefer this to their Alt beer. If you like stouts, you’ll love this!

Less dry and more alcoholic than guinness. Very nice stout, big head, dark, with a creamy mouthfeel.

This beer smells great! It looks dark with a decent lasting head, its a very smooth coffee influenced stout that is enjoyable, another beer that makes me proud to be a michigander!

Draught. Nitro. Chocolate aromas. Bitter roasty malt flavor but well balanced and smooth. Pleasant.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 20, 2004
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of finely sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained unnoted carbonation, was nearly opaque and dark ruby red brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of good dark malty molasses. Its mouth feel is initially slightly tingly with a lingering palate and a malty aftertaste. Its flavor contained dark beer brown malts roasted notes. A very good stout with a nice balance to it.

clearly a guinness clone. very minty and chalky nose, and tastes just like it smells. thicker and chewier than guinness. extremely smooth, and definitely a beer fit for a session.

Peaty malty aroma. Some coffee notes. Some bitterness in the finish. Smokey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great coffee and raosted malt aroma- great looking with a good sized oatmeal colored head. Slightly acrid and burnt flavorings but they add overall to the usual culprits - not as "dry" (tindery, woody, all roast) as other Dry Stouts. Very drinkable.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Sampled on draught @ Arbor Brewing Company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Black color. Lovely aroma reminiscent of the heavenly Milestone Porter with fresh fudge, deep chocolate, coffee, and roasty and burnt malts. Creamy texture with a medium body. Dynamic malt flavor with acceptable bitterness and a range of flavors. The last beer of the day where I visited four breweries, so the notes are a little lacking, but I sampled this with their chocolate cake and it was lovely.

Panzuriel (1282) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2012
On Tap at Union Woodshop in Clarkston MI. Pint Pour in a mason jar. Beer is deep brown black opaque. Nose is a very nice roasted malt coffee bitters. Taste is a nice hit of coffee on the front that mellows to nice roasty malt flavor mid taste. Finishes cleanly with good bitters. Body is rather thin, but good. A very solid dry stout .
