This dark ale is most closely associated with Ireland. Roasted Barley provides the dark color and the roasted/chocolate flavors. Torrified Wheat also contributes a toasted character. Three different types of caramel add body and a rich maltiness. Nugget hops are used for bittering while Willamette and Hallertau are added for flavor and aroma. 10º Plato, 18 IBU.

Almost opaque amber-black, with bit of fine tan head. Mild roast and chocolate aromas, with some carmel and soy sauce as it warms. Good smooth palate with a nice roast astringency. Perked coffee roast flavors and some winey notes. Jut a bit of lingering bitterness. Not wildly exciting, but a solid example of brewpub stout.
