COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We produce a traditional styled Irish Stout that is served using beer gas to produce that familiar creamy pour. Our black stout has a roasted malt flavour and a hint of toasted walnuts and choclate in the finish. Select imported hops are used to dry out the finish of this ale.

On tap at whalesbone oyster house. Pours a dark creamy black, light tan head, well carbonated. Dry aroma, roasted malts, bit of coffee and very smooth. Slightly bitter finish, nice and dry - comparable to Guinness but local.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Deep black pour with a tight tan head. The aroma is quite cocoaish. Lots of toastiness and a light yet silky palate. There is a bit of coffee and roasted malt on the finish. Well-balanced and pretty tasty. A lovely dry stout.

Draft. Very dark brown; average head retention. Pleasant coffee aroma, mild burnt wood. Amazingly refreshing palate for a stout draws only one comparison: Guinness. Also very Guinness-like in flavour with a creamy coffee body and mild dark chocolate finish. An exceptional “buy local” alternative to one of the city’s most prolific pints.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2011
Good coffee and malt aromas, smells like homebew! Looks quite dark and really nice foam action like a guiness. Its much thinner than expected but the flavour is, almost, spot on. A bit watery though. Pretty good all in all. Pn tap at The Owl.

TimE (3145) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 22, 2010
Very smooth body. Lots of roasted malt and dark chocolate flavors. Rich. I was a bit surprised to find it was only 4.2%. Not overly complex, but delivers on being a solid, highly quaffable dry stout.

The "Irish-style" stout is typically a low-gravity stout with bitterness ranging between 30-45 IBUs. Roastiness is present, but restrained, and there should not be hops in either the flavour or aroma. A little bit of acidity can be present. Often, this type of stout is serving via nitrogen, with all the effects that has on a beer - low carbonation, extra-thick head, lifeless palate and muted flavour and aroma. Well, the rate beer description of a dry stout pretty much nails this beer right on the head. It’s a beautiful looking beer, The aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee, but all very faint or "restrained". The flavour is pretty much the aroma, but again very "restrained". And the palate is lifeless. Still though, a decent session stout, went ok with my meal, no complaints.

Zenwolf (268) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2010
Draught. Excellent and very drinkable stout. Pours creamy and rich with a foamy off-white head. A nice bit of smoke to compliment the chocolate. Good mouthfeel.. not overly thick and very nice with great roasted flavor in the finish. Tasty,

Lubiere (9884) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
A dark clear stout with a thick frothy brown head. In aroma, lightly peated chocolate malt, a bit of smoked herring, not bad. In mouth, a light and dryish stout with coffee grinds, malt balls, a bit of chocolate, a bit boring. On tap at brewpub, August 7 2010.
