COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As black as the night and as smooth as the Blarney Stone, our version of this classic Irish style is thick and creamy, with a mild aftertaste of burnt and roasted grains.

Pours a dark brown with a medium coffee colored head and lots of lacing. Smells of coco and malt. Has a nice roasted malt taste. Very smooth even for a cream stout.

On tap at the source. Comes to the table a solid dark brown/black color with a decent sized foamy tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee and earthy hops with just a touch of chocolate and caramel. The flavor is lightly bitter with roasted grains and countered with a bit of earthy hop and just enough caramel and chocolate to keep it interesting. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation, and a creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good sessionable stout.

kathouse (1106) - Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2013
A very pleasant and easy drinking Irish Stout. Dark with the typical creamy head. Light aroma of roasted malts. Dry but refreshing flavors of chocolate and roast. Finishes with slight grain bitterness.

TATE (307) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JUL 24, 2013
On cask at Cohill’s. Pours black with a thick off white head. Big chocolate malt aroma and taste. The body was a bit thin and the beginning a bit watery but the finish was great, smooth, with bitterness from the roasted malt. Very good and very easy to drink. Would have liked to have more but it is a Wednesday night.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 As noted, this is similar to classic Guinness stout. Pours with a creamy head and has a very nice mouthfeel.Pairs well with the Drunken Potroast or the Fish and Chips.

This, along with the Alewife Ale, was the best of the beers I tried there. Black body with consistent tan head. Mocha scent. Tastes very chocolately. While on the heavier side of medium bodied, it is definitely not quite as heavy as many stouts. Tastes similar to Samuel Adams chocolate bock in some ways, but definitely more tasty and richer. Good stuff. I’ll definitely be getting this one again. I realise I’m in the minority on this one, but I really liked it.
