COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our rendition of a Dry Irish Stout, circa 1890. Deep roasted malt is what makes a stout a stout, and years ago the fire of the kiln would have added its distinct smoky flavor during the roasting process. Three Feet Deep rekindles that lost flavor with a small addition of peat smoked malt. At 14.4° Plato, this is not a heavy beer, but you wouldn’t know it as the round and earthy quality of peat fills your senses. Our stout is a return to County Cork and the warmth of the Irish hearth.

This beer pours an inky black with a plentiful dark tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, and little else. Flavor is light meaty smokiness (like a ham?) which reminded me of an O’Fallon Smoked Porter I had awhile back. Very interesting. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but this beer is still fairly drinkable.

Description on the bottle says it all. Sweet maltiness with hints of smoke, taste is dark chocolate, quickly overcome by tastey smoke, very light but very distinct.not bad at all, a nice light bodied smoke brew

This is the newest release from Furthermore. I just now got around to rating it - it actually has been out for a few months now. I’m not sure if this will be a seasonal or a year round release. Either way it is not too bad. While not the best in style it is reasonably well done. I hope Furthermore can stick around long enough to expand their releases even more.

Aroma / Appearance - A deep brown almost black body reminded me of a flat Pepsi. On top was a tan colored head with little lacing. The nose was well done. A base of roasted malts was complimented with smoke, peat, raspberries, coconut and chocolate shavings.

Flavor / Palate - There were no suprises in the first sip. Smoke, malt, peat and a trace of watermelon rind form the initial impression. The next couple of sips remind me of vanilla ice cream covered with some Hershey’s chocolate syrup. Towards the end it takes on an oaty character. The mouthfeel is a little thin but not too bad for the style. The earthy aftertaste is a little unusual but hardly a turnoff. This is a solid well made beer which will hopefully survive in the Wisconsin beer landscape.

Pours dark mahogany with a holding, cream-colored head. Heavily smoked aroma... peaty & earthen with chocolate beneath low esters. Fizzy mouthfeel, a little thin. Smoke is prominent above a base of timid malts in the flavor. Alcohol seems very forward to me.

12 oz bottle from Rileys in Madison, WI (December 2006) served around cellar temperature in a Samuel Smith pint glass. An enormous billowy dark tan head forms above the translucent black walnut body, large bubbles breaking up audibly as the foam descends slowly leaving thick lacing; gorgeous.....light grapy notes are evident upon the cap being popped, but closer nosings show a much more typical bitter cocoa/espresso bean aroma, with fine hints of baked pecans as well; very expressive and well-developed.....doesn’t hold up in the body, though it’s not bad overall, lightly sweet at the front with cocoa, vanilla and a bit of maple, drying out fairly quickly and becoming rather intensely bitter at the very finish....the problem is in the mouthfeel, at once rather thin and watery, and cardboardy towards the end....a little bit of finishing lactic sourness doesn’t help either, spoiling an excellent beginning and making this just "good" rather than excellent.

#945, From the bottle, had at the December 06 Chicago Gathering at ElGaucho’s Place. Clear dark brown with a bit of amber / rubyness to it. Nose is is mossy kind of , malty and sour. Tatse has one heck fo a kick of smoke with a sharp hoppy sting towards the end.

Nice brown color. Decent head. Nose is pleasantly smoky but subdued enough to be subtle. However, the smoke starts to cloy as the beer is tasted w/ an unpleasant peaty not becoming readily apparent. The carbonation is slightly too vigorous but not so much as it overrides the malty notes in the background.

I usually find Dry Stouts to be a dull kind of a drink, but this had that something extra to make it more enjoyable. Peat smoke. The body’s a clear dark brown with ruby highlights and sports a respectable ecru head. The aroma holds notes of roasted malts, roasted barley, and an appreciable whiff of peat smoke. It’s a very dry drink and has the addition of some bittersweet chocolate in the flavor. It finished on a roasted, dry, smokey note. Not too shabby.

ElGaucho (2221) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle. Nice, dry, smoked aroma. Almost opaque body; can see some red when held up to light. Head is pretty light in color for a beer this dark. Nice head. Tight bubble. Initially quite carbonated. Mellows after a few minutes and it’s nowhere near as carbonated as a lot of Belgian brews you’ll run across. I like this beer. Smoke is done well. Somewhat dry. Unique. Get your hands on some of this.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Bottle. Clear dark brown body. Tangy acidic roast and chocolaty peat in the aroma. Strong but a bit too acidic for me. The flavor has a good balance of chocolate sweetness, black patent char, and tangy peat. A novel addition to an already good dry stout!
