COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our newest beer made exclusively for Whole Food Markets. This dry Irish style stout has a smooth milky finish due to the barley flakes used in the mashing process that will leave you wanting another! We think this dry, slightly burnt tasting ale is just the trick for any dark beer drinker; so if stouts are your thing; give ours a try. Now available at any of your local Whole Food Markets in California, Nevada, Texas and Arizona.

bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Bottle at Whole Foods in Sacramento. Very black color with an emphemeral tan head. Smells burntly toasty. About medium body with creamish carbonation. Flavor is really gritty burnt toast. Goes on to a touch of sweetness before finishing burnt, lightly smoky, bitter. It’s an ok thing, and reminds of the original Guinness from 40 years ago. Except the flavor leaves the mouth rather than staying. Arguably a bit short on ingredients.

daknole (9173) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Amost a black pour with a small brownish head. Aroma is roasty and has some prune notes. Flavor is a bit sweeter than most Irish dry stouts and has a definite smoke note to it. Very unique for the style. I like it.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Blackout Stout and its not an imperial? Pours with a fading tan head over a deep brown body. Aroma of brown sugar, molasses, chocolate, and cocoa powder. Taste is thin, leathery with coffee grounds. Dry and thin mouthfeel.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2009
Bottle thanks to bhensonb: Pours an opaque black with a thin, spotty-lacing beige head. Aroma of toasty dark caramel and roasted malts with a hint of coffee. Body starts with average fullness and a touch of sweet caramel malt which soon fades into a roasted nutty and burnt drier finish. Has some lingering peanut brittle character without the sweetness. A pretty true to style and drinkable brew.

Ibrew2or3 (6985) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Picked up at Keg and Barrel 15th street in Plano, TX. 12oz bottle pours up dark brown to black with short lived loose mocha head. The aroma is nice with chocolate mixing with dark roasted malts, a touch of caramel and a dash of burnt malts. The aroma is very subtle at times but I find it inviting. The taste begins smooth and somewhat neutral in flavor. It quickly becomes mildly chocolate and burnt. To midway and into the finish it picks up a modest level of caramel – toffee – medium roastiness that helps bring balance to the flavor and bring also some mild dryness into the finish. I like this. The wife does too.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle. Blackish beer with a thin tan head. Chocolate and light roast aroma. Chocolate and light coffee flavor. Lighter body than expected. Chocolate, light roast, and light licorice lingers.

marcus (6586) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
This dark brown beer poured with a nice tan head and a smoked malt aroma. The flavor is burnt, creamy and malty, but a bit too thin for a stout.
