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.

Well done Mill Street! Another notch on the belt! I bought this as part of a stout tasting in preparation for a batch of chocolate double oatmeal stout I am getting ready to tap. It pours like Guinness out of the can and cascades down he glass for about 30 s nods before settling with a thick creamy head. The nitrogen pack gives it that fresh draft taste with a hint of chocolate, coffee and malt tastes quickly sweeping he palate. Itís bitter, but not overly so, perfectly balanced IMHO. Itís to Guiness, donít expect that. Itís more of a British style stout than Irish. All around great beer.

Wow. Kudos Mill Street. This is excellent. 440mL can. Explodes out of the can and starts to foam immediately. Nice, long lasting head. Smooth on the palate, chocolate and roast flavours. Long smooth finish. Highly recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this beer on draft and recently from can and the draft just seemed way better. It seemed as thought the aromas were much more pronounced on draft and the mouthfeel much better. I loved in on draft and was disappointed when I brought the can home.

Frothmeister (726) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2012
440ml can. Pours black with a thick beige head. Gosh darnit, nitro stouts are pretty. Aroma is dark malts, with heavy cocoa (almost chocolate milk), mineral notes, faint coffee, and biscuity notes. Mmm. The taste is faint cocoa, espresso, molasses, and mineral notes. Not bad, but definitely TOO thin bodied. A decent local alternative to Guinness, but as far stouts go, you can do MUCH better.

Pours deep black with a fine, nitrogenated cream head that lasts forever. Aroma is dark malt, some slight earthiness, and a bit of yeast. The taste is medium malt, with toasty-coffee bitterness up front, and mild hop bitterness on the finish. Low carbonation, medium body, nicely balanced.

473 mL can. Pours creamy, foamy brown. Lovely looking beer. Aroma isnít much, but the flavour has a lovely chocolate note, and the flavour lacks the note of tin you often find in this style. Better than many of the more popular versions of the style.

Stout fan of all different kinds of stoutís. Crack can noize and then its rushing over the can quickly get it into shaker glass. Big 3 finger creany head from wiget, Black beer no red so good looking. Light smell not alot but its creamy chcolate kinda smells. Taste starts off so good. Creamy foamy milky disert head with a chocolate tasteing stout but widget taste flavours away quickly and low % makes it watery. Average stout 5/10 cheerís!

Not bad for a stout. I feel like I like the cobblestone stout more then guinness because itís not as heavy and full bodied.

Nitro pour at Original Joeís Varsity Row. Deep brownish black pour, thick creamy tan head. Chocolatey nose with coffee and roast. Taste is chocolate malt up front, roasty middle, mild coffee end. Smooth nitro body. Enjoyable, has the typical things Iím looking for in a dry stout.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2012
500 mL Glass of draft sampled a t a pub. Dark brown-black body with a creamy beige head that clings thickly to the glass as it is sipped. Aroma of coffee and cookies and pastries, like "walking into a coffee shop". Toasted malts dominate in the flavor department with a note of black coffee, the same in the aftertaste, tapering off to a silky creamy finish. This is excellent stout. Guinness, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you will have to settle for silver in your sport.
