COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Stout is a dry Irish style stout. The dark color of the beer comes from a mixture of roasted barley and chocolate malt (chocolate malt has a chocolate color, and doesn’t actually have chocolate in it.) The thicker texture is from an addition of flaked, unmalted barley. Flake barley is similar to rolled oats (oatmeal.) The stout is bitter, yet in balance with all the other heavy flavors in this beer. The nitrogen gas tapping system produces the thick, creamy head. Nitrogen bubbles are smaller and do not burst as easy.

kwik-lime (1382) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2010
Predictably smooth with low carbonation but not much going on besides the usual burnt taste you expect with the style. Disappointing.

Black with a creamy off white head. Chocolate caramel and citrus hops aroma. Taste of chocolate citrus slight chalkiness and a mildly tart and bitter finish.

CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2006
I am an old softy when it comes to stouts. This was a typical dry stout. Deep rich chocolate aroma. Tan head with an almost black body. Very easy to drink beer. If darker beers are your thing, then this one is a good try while there.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 17, 2005
This was a pretty mild and easy-drinking stout. A lot of roasted malt flavor in it yet no astringent bitterness. Very smooth drinking like most nitrogenated brews. Not bad. (Not great either.)

Crit (3394) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2003
Black with tan head. Burnt malt nose and flavor with espresso note. Rather thin.

Oristo (67) - Orinda, California, USA - JAN 9, 2003
OK color, look, and nose. Surprisingly wet in the mouth and fizzy, not creamy.

jazz88 (2564) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 29, 2002
Tap. Solid black. Roasted and burnt malts. Rich but not thick. A balanced aroma but not a complicated flavor.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAR 15, 2002
Chocolate and coffee in the taste. Not very creamy as claimed. Kind of weak.
