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.

Tmoney99 (10963) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Can shared by b3shine. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth dry texture with soft carbonation. Moderate toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable dry stout.

sulawang (632) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Visual: Aluminum can. Pours ultra dark brown/black with bubbles clinging near the bottom-base of the glass, virtually no head, a very thin ringed retention, almost no activity other than a few bubbles surfacing. Nose: medium roasted malts, burntness. (lvl-6)-pungency. Attack: thin-watery, sharp nitrogenated mouthfeel Mid-palate: med-high sourness, (lvl-4)-sweetness (MAIN) roasted malts, coffee Finish: roasted coffee exhale, bittersweet malty finish. Summary: The watery mouthfeel coupled with the almost flat mouthfeel put me off on this one. Flavour of roasted malt is ok but texturally unbalanced on the sour side.

berkshirejohn (4645) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
440 ml can from an LCBO in Toronto. A pitch black colour pour with an impressive, nitro-powered, milk chocolate coloured head about an inch thick; rich drinking chocolate aroma; a thin milky body with a pleasnt coffee taste, perhaps a little too sweet though; and a dry chocolate milk finish with a touch of bitterness. Overall rather good.

Hidden_Pooch (409) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Can. A good middle of the road stout. I prefer my stouts from a bottle, they don’t feel as proud coming from a can. Has a strong roasted coffee taste lots of dark chocolate bitterness. Has a nice thick creamy mouth feel and finishes dry like the style implies. A tasty dry stout.

b3shine (5717) - Indiana, USA - MAY 22, 2014
16 oz can to snifter (shared with the group; thanks DuffMan). Looks good for the style; a fairly opaque dull black with foamy/creamy head. Smells of dark malt and mild roast. Tastes like it smells with an even subtler roast profile. Nice on the palate; smooth and dry. Nothing special, but very quaffable.

Draft. Black pour with a creamy head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee. Taste is similar, a bit of bitterness, dark chocolate. Pretty good, generally full bodied.

jdobbs (402) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 13, 2014
Pours a dark brown colour with a thick light tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasty malt. Similar flavours with a very nutty linger. Moderate carbonation and a creamy mouth-feel.

piscator34 (1980) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
Canned sample. Near black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of chocolate-like roasted malt, wet stones, and toasted nuts. Light bodied on the palate, with a nicely balanced roast and mineral thing going on. Not super complex, but very drinkable. Devoid of fruity yeast notes, which is nice.
