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.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Pours an opaque black with a crown of thick creamy brown foam. Nose is of malt with a hint of smoke. Very creamy on the palate, strong taste of smoked peat, dark roasted malt carmel and pepper assault the taste buds. This beer is packed with flavor. Stands alone as a banquet itself or can be paired with bbq ribs, pulled pork sandwiches or ribeyes or burgers off the grill.

arkurzynski (1591) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Pours dark brown. Roast malt and light smokiness in the nose. Nice round roast flavor that lingers slightly. Barely a hint of smoked malt in the background. Very even carbonation. No offending roast aspects. Just a simple, good stout.

Not the world’s greatest Stout. It’s a very solid taste, and a beer that you could easily drink one after another after another after...

Bottle courtesy of BeerFMAndy. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass. Pour brings forward a beer that is nearly black and has a thin tan head. Some spotty lacing and not so great retention, though there’s a thin collar throughout. The nose brings a bit of coffee alongside a strong base of roasted malt. The flavor is a bit more complex, adding in some dark chocolate alongside the dark, dark coffee. Roasted malt is dominant and becomes a bit too dry and bitter in the finish. Pretty solid effort; I’d have this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-18-2011

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 This is one of the most unique tasting stouts I have ever tested. The peat smoked malt really does it for me.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle: Poured a dark black color stout with a nice brown foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light smoke peaty malt with roasted coffee notes. Taste is a great mix between some peat malts with notes of roasted coffee and a light touch of black chocolate. Body is about average with good carbonation. Love the light smoked peat notes on that one.

Dark cola color with minimal head that fades quickly. Has a pleasant smokey roast flavor to it.

TheAlum (5950) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2011
12 oz bottle from Casanova Liquors (Hudson, WI). Pours a very dark blackish hue, some good haze, ruby bottom and some on the edges, but pretty dark overall, with a decent frothy light brown head, dies to a good layer, laces ok. Aromas are roasted malts, toast, and soda bread, some touches of coffee, a touch of smoky ash, more roasted barley, dry. Initial is medium bodied, dry and roasty up front, with good toast, bread, biscuits, soda bread, toffee, and coffee. Into the middle we get some peaty smoke, ashy and peaty, earthy smoke with some touches of toffee sweetness. Really quite dry and roasty overall, a bit heavier on the palate than I’m used to from the Dry Stout category. I like the peaty smoke, it give sa unique feel and as a Smokehead I appreciate it. Lingering on into the finish, dry roast, peaty smoke, wood, ash, and touches of sweetness peeking through. If anything it loses itself a bit in it’s identity, but the uniqueness of a peaty smoke push towards dominance is quite pleasant, albeit a bit big on the palate. I liked this, I wouldn’t drink it all the time but it certainly was unique. Aromas was lacking, appearance was good, flavors were very nice, and it might have been a touch too dry, but that’s just me nitpicking.
