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.

The aroma is chocolate and chocolate. A decent head of a creamy off white brown and the beer was black as black. It was chocolately and bitter a great combo. There was little carbination and it had a medium/heacy body and very smooth. A good brew

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.

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.
