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.

Noir sombre avec une mousse moyenne dense qui reste jusqu’au fin. L’arôme est de malt avec un goût qui est d’abord du malt rôti puis un très petit peu d’amertume et un après goût légèrement amer.

Pours dark as you want it with a foamy cappuccino cap. Aroma is nil. Taste is muted: roasted malts, a hint of nuts, a wisp of chocolate. Decent interpretation, if interpretation is what you want. Like the dry stout it’s emulating, it has that tendency to taste like a smooth, creamy cold water soup.

500ml can into an English pint glass. Pours black with a velvety beige head. Aroma of roasty malts and a bit of coffee. Rich and creamy with good roastiness, a hint of licorice and a light chocolate aftertaste. A nice stout.

Excellent brew from Mill St. they are becoming one of my favorite brewers. I haven’t tried many beers from them, but I’ve enjoyed all that I have had the chance to try!

UPDATED: MAY 4, 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 haven’t 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. I’d still take Guinness over this.

Cantabrian (805) - 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.

2 oz sample from Mill St’s "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 one’s definitely closer to a Beamish, which is a grand thing. Very dry on the palate. Overall, recommended.
