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.

Can at Fastelavn Smagning 2014 @ J&C’s beer palace, Jutland 28/02/14, acquired from a CA guy in an IP trade. Light black with a moderate tan swirl cleating to edgework. Nose is light roast, chocolate, dark malts. Taste follows, pretty basic stouty profile. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so - basic affair.

Can. A clear-looking dark brown beer topped by a dense, beige head. It’s mostly roasted on the nose, with some dark chocolate. Pretty one dimensional, and that goes for the flavor too. Quite sweet for an Irish style stout, with roasted malts and some coffee. A touch of prunes chime in towards the roasted finish. Medium body, and a nice carbonation level. Well, it’s drinkable for sure, but too boring for my likings. 140228

Can 500ml @ fonefan
Pours dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and nuts. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a long silky smooth chocolate finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

"At the Ottawa brewpub: Very nice look! Thick and creamy head that lasts pretty much throughout. Extremely dark brownish colour. Thick lacing. Creamy full bodied mouthfeel. Aroma of coffee and caramel. Hints of chocolate, mocha, roasted malts in the flavour. Not getting much of the hops, which is fine. Not too bitter. Could be thicker for a stout, but it’s good like this, rather than choking on molasses. Loved it!"

473ml of can from LCBO. Toronto, Ontario. It pours an opaque black colour with a mousse mocha head which has a good retention. Good lacing. Taste matches the aroma. It has a light body with low carbonation.

samzim (181) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Roasty aroma of coffee and chocolate. Opaque near-black colour. Flavour of roasted malt, coffee, and nuts. Sustained bitterness. Heavy body with strong carbonation. Good flavours but a bit too bubbly for my liking.

Motobashi (68) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
The head is so thick that very little aroma is coming through. Faint grassy scent. Solid black. Blocking all light. Two finger, tan head that remained throughout. Light flavour for a stout. Strong chocolate flavour.Very thin almost watery texture. Very little aftertaste. Over all a poor stout.
