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.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 A enjoyable dry stout, easy going down and good session beer. I am not a huge stout fan, but I enjoy this over most stouts I have tasted.

(440ml can) Looking at this can I cannot believe that they havenít been sued by Guinness -same tall can, same black and cream colour, same gold oval circle, even similar font type. Large, foamy, retaining almond-coloured head atop a black body. Nose of mild ashtray. Very mild cocoa flavour with some burnt malt. Pretty thin. Iíd still take Guinness over this.

Cantabrian (761) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 25, 2013
Can+widget, from the LCBO store by Masonville in London, Ont. Fabulous nitro/tap-looking black beer with a ridiculously creamy off-white head. Aroma of milk chocolate and chocolate milk, with a touch of yogurt sourness. Flavour is quite mild, with chocolate (milk & dark chocolate), earthy, with roasts, nuts and caramel malts, and that touch of sourness too. The bitterness is sweet, an oxymoron made true by this great beer experience. Even though the body is not that thick, it is still creamy, velvety and buttery on the palate. A tremendous stout. A favourite in Ontario.

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
2 oz sample from Mill Stís "new" nitro cans.Dark, black pour with a tan foam with decent retention. Aroma is very much roasted barley, and malt. Taste is a hint of coffee, and the roasted grain. Thick, frothy, and very worthy - blind testing I guarantee I could not differentiate this from Guinness.

Really good Canadian stout recommended to me by a kind waitress. Great aroma, reminiscent of Beamish Irish stout - hint of sweetness, very very enticing and pleasant. Appearance is pitch black - light shining through it reveals a deep brown. Rapid cascading after pour is wonderful. Taste is mild coffee and sweet chocolate, with a good roasty presence. This oneís definitely closer to a Beamish, which is a grand thing. Very dry on the palate. Overall, recommended.

italarican (1425) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2013
On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Pours a deep dark brown. Aroma is full of cocoa powder, wet coffee grounds, and some slight smoke. Mild nuttiness and smokiness in the flavor, primarily a dark chocolate flavor. Slightly creamy body with lingering chocolate and mild nuttiness. My bias toward stouts continues!

From notes at the Edmonton Craft Beer Festival: All coffee all the time, front and back. Pours black. Medium sweet medium bitter.

shorlin (589) - St. Johnís, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
Very delicate coffee aroma at first, but also something kind of candyish, maybe caramel. Actually, maybe itís a bit like raisins. Appearance wise, itís a beautiful beer. Solid widget can head, deadly black. Taste wise, pretty good. Kind of light in the mouth, finish is not terrific. Dies a bit quick. Taste does come around with toast, bit of chocolate and coffee again. Good beer!
