Black roasted barley and a slight hoppiness combine to give this Irish Stout its distinctive velvety texture and sensational creamy taste. Welcome to the dark side.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2004
1.9 L growler Black hue with no light shining through, long-lasting tan head, foamy and frothy. Chocolate and dry charcoal roast aroma, pretty straightforward and simple, but well focused. Palate is pretty dry altogether, very well built roasty finish, but not much happening before. Malt profile definitely lacks some character and is actually a little bland or at least not so flavourful. Under average example.

SimonPatrice (312) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2003
(1.9L growler)Really opaque black, almost no head. Chocolatey aroma, some roastiness, a touch of coffee, maybe a hint of soy sauce. Burnt chocolate flavor, nice hop bite. Quite satisfying.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 Any first impressions?
-A quietly receding gigantofoam tops the tawny-tinged blackness.
-Roasting coffee beans reveals a discreet black chocolate sweetness within.
-Energetic minty green hoppiness dances with the dry malt roastiness.
-The fluffy carbonation and lean maltiness offer plenty of drinkability.

What if you dig deeper?
-That wooden, leafy hop bitterness sure is pleasurable.
-Trickling vanilla sporadically sweetens the important roastiness.
-When drinkability and flavor are maximized, enjoyment cannot be far behind.
-Solace is gained at the taste of a well-made, lively pint of stout.

Bottle; best before March 07.
