Dark malt aroma with slight sour scent, pours black with a tan nitro head. Very smooth palate due to the nitro, medium bodied, fairly strong flavour, burnt flavours, dry, chocolatey, medium length finish. Nice smooth stout.

On tap at Spirits. Really nice creamy head that smears all over the glass. Classic dry stout notes, bitter, roasted grains, some anice/licorice, dark chocolate. Tame and balanced as the style calls for. Nice.

Pours a dark black oil like color. Minimal dark tan head with no lacing present. Aroma is chocolate malts and coffee. Taste is on par with aroma. This is a great stout

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
440ml can from the LCBO, poured into a pint glass. Poured deep brown/black, with little to no head and just a thin ring of foam around the edge. No lacing to speak of on the glass. Aroma - roasted malts and coffee, wood smoke, perhaps a hint of vanilla. Taste - again, lots of malt, sweeter than I expected but not cloyingly so. Coffee too, but not much else - thin and watery feel on the palate, low carbonation, reminds me of bottled Guinness. Hops are way back in the wings, drying out the finish but never asserting themselves in a significant way.
Overall a pleasant stout, very drinkable, but not memorable. Puts me in mind of winter nights at the pub, quaffing pints of Guinness or Murphy’s over steak pies, chips & gravy.

Fantastic dry stout. Pours near black with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Incredibly smooth and tastes great with a finishing taste of cover and dark chocolate.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a big can this has thing that sizzles inside once you pop the top. One of the nicest pours youll see. Just a simple beery smell. Good mild flavors of roasted yumminess.No real alky in yer face, just a simple emjoyable dark beer. However, being a spoiled american, it would be nice to have a little co2 sizzle in this. Yea, never could get used to those cask or nitro beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
As is often the case with Mill Street beers I’m tempted to rate this extremely low out of spite. I will attempt to restrain myself.
Pour is a typical nitrogen stout pour, ie it looks like a Guinness. Nose is faint chocolate and coffee, muted roasted notes hiding under a blanket of foam. So it smells like a Guinness. Taste is light chocolate/coffee and roasted grain with a finish that’s nicely dry. Flavour profile overall is nice, but subdued - so it tastes like a Guinness, complete with that flat mouthfeel that’s typical of nitrogen cans. Overall another blah entry from Mill Street.
