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.

Light and wTery., but still good. Nice Irish stout which I could be wrong but always seem a little waterier than other stouts. So stop thinking bug bold stout/imperial porter type of stuff. That said some coffee - a lot more oatmealy. Some though not much toasted notes.

marcus (9133) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 12, 2010
On tap at the brewpub (aka Black River Stout). Pours opaque black with a decent tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a dark malt flavor that is a bit too thin for a stout. However, a decent brew.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Black with a lasting nitro head. Dry and ashy on the nose, a little like french roast coffee. Dry flavor, quite roasty, a touch ashy, and tangy in the finish. Nice bitter chocolate character. Light bodied but with a surprisingly lively body considering the ubiquitous nitro conditioning. A definitely a solid dry stout that still presents well on nitro.

kwik-lime (1692) - 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.)

Black with tan head. Burnt malt nose and flavor with espresso note. Rather thin.
