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 14.4į Plato, this is not a heavy beer, but you wouldnít 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.

Very dry, smoky and roasty flavor - less sweet than any stout Iíve tried before. Interesting, unique flavor. Very dark brown in color, with a huge light brown head.

Probably the best irish dry stout i have had, and that isnít saying much. IT is light with a hint of roastiness.

AbsoluterZero (11) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Source: 12 oz bottle from local retailer Aroma: Smells like a lot of dry stouts Iíve had in my day. Just a wee bit of bittersweet chocolate comes through to the nose. Quite pleasant, actually. Appearance: For all intents and purposes, this beer is is an opaque black. It pours with a fingerís width of khaki colored head. Taste: Not nearly as bitter as I was expecting. In fact, this stout is quite sweet for a "dry" stout (a very strong chocolate taste to it, slightly lighter caramel notes). Got the lovely malty backdrop I like in a stout of this style, but the unusual sweetness is the star attraction. Palate: Pretty smooth on the palate. Has a moderately thick body to it. None of the flavors linger too long in the mouth. Overall: An excellent offering from Furthermore. The sweetness of the beer was a bit surprising, but very welcome. One of the best dry stouts Iíve ever had.

Tasting at Paulís house. The aroma is smoke, chocolate, brown sugar, very nice. The appearances is a slighly translucent brown, light btan head. The flavor is smoke, chocolate, roast - enjoyable, and not overly dry. The finish is smoke again, meaty, pine, resin. Medium/thick in body, particularly for an Irish stout. Enjoyable.

Draft. Pours dark blackish brown with off-tan head. Nose is dark malt, chocoff. Tastes black malty, with cacao, coffee, slight rauchy notes, backup hops, and a decent complexity.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Pours a dark black with foamy light brown head. Aroma is sweet baking chocolate with slight lactic notes. Flavor nice and dry yet somewhat creamy. Not too bitter or overpowering, yet still has depth. Dry roasty finish. Overall, dangerously drinkable.

alobar (3124) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Pours black with a tan soapy head. Aroma of smoke, plums, and wood. Smoky flavor with peat, and plum sweetness. Dry as advertised. Nice beer.

Pours a dark brown with small tan head. Smell of smoked peat is strong. Taste is subtle but gets more smoky as you get into it. Nice smooth beer.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Appearance: dark black with burnt edges. Fluffy khaki head fades rocky with big bubbles mingling amidst mousse-like meringue. Lingers in the shape of a doughnut. Mahogany highlights along bottom. Swirls with khaki clumps and tons of lace.
Nose: smoke, wood chips Ė cedar comes to mind, burnt wood esters, and dry brittle bakers chocolate chunks. Faint plums and prunes in the back; sweetness of meats then bitter nip of the skins. Black root and black strap molasses mingle with the earthen smoky burnt essence.
Palate: medium mouthfeel and weight with a prominent burnt bitterness. Burnt wood, peat, smoke, and some nicely aged cedar. Dry finish with smoke in the breath. Black root, more wood, black strap molasses charred and tastefully crusty. Brittle chocolates in the back of each quaff. Plum skins linger long with the subtle bitterness found only in the very end while plum meats tantalize along with a sweet chewy dark raisins in middle quaff.
Final Thoughts: if you donít like peat and you donít like smoke then you very well may not like this beer. By all means though, donít let that stop you from trying. I love both so of course I enjoyed the heck out of this beer. Thanks sis!
