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.

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 (10883) - 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.

djd07 (10520) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small frothy off white head that diminishes quickly leaving decent spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a sweet fruity malt with raisin and light roast. Thin mouthfeel with a roasty malt with brown sugar and molasses with a nice dry finish. Easy to drink, a good dry stout from Indian Wells.

"wow...jlozier is right on the money on this one. had it as part of sampler pack of 8 IW brews. there’s a crap malt or some kind of negative common denominator that makes all their beer sub par...not to mention the thin head, body, and flavor. not much to add. "

marcus (9221) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - 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.
