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.

My favourite stout, hands down. Chocolat-esque with hints of coffee and nuts. Wonderful dark brown, light black colour with an amazing after taste and clean white head. Canít get enough!

Papillon (366) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2012
500 mL Glass of draft sampled a t a pub. Dark brown-black body with a creamy beige head that clings thickly to the glass as it is sipped. Aroma of coffee and cookies and pastries, like "walking into a coffee shop". Toasted malts dominate in the flavor department with a note of black coffee, the same in the aftertaste, tapering off to a silky creamy finish. This is excellent stout. Guinness, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you will have to settle for silver in your sport.

I tried this beer on tap on May 29, 2009 at "Smokeless Joeís" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a blackish-brown colour with a creamy tan coloured head that lasted and produced a thin film down the side of the glass. The aroma was fairly simple with huints of roasted malt and coffee. The mouthfeel was creamy and full bodied, with mild carbonation. The flavour was extremely refreshing, and great. There were the same hints of chocolate in the flavour, along with a nice bitter finish.

On tap @ Hardrock 42 Gastropub Sudbury. Pours a super-thick mocha colored head that doesnít quit. Beautiful cascading waves of carbonation throughout. Aroma of roasty malts, coffee, chocolate, and smoke. Tastes of coffee and chocolate are dominant. Dry and pleasantly bitter. Creamy on the palate with a lingering bitterness. Refreshing (stout refreshing? Yes!) but served a little too cold for my tastes. Awesome stout.

On tap at the Mill Street Brew Pub. Beautiful deep black with a nice creamy greyish-tan head. Roasted malt, with dashes of nut and coffee with a very smooth finish. A pretty straight forward stout, but just about flawless.

Well done Mill Street! Another notch on the belt! I bought this as part of a stout tasting in preparation for a batch of chocolate double oatmeal stout I am getting ready to tap. It pours like Guinness out of the can and cascades down he glass for about 30 s nods before settling with a thick creamy head. The nitrogen pack gives it that fresh draft taste with a hint of chocolate, coffee and malt tastes quickly sweeping he palate. Itís bitter, but not overly so, perfectly balanced IMHO. Itís to Guiness, donít expect that. Itís more of a British style stout than Irish. All around great beer.

Nov 28 2012. 440ml can explodes from nitrogen spilling into tumbler with 4 inch brown fizz forming the 3 finger fluffy tan head. Beer is solid black. Beautiful. Aroma of malts, walnut and chocolate. First sip is chocolate milk. Once through the head, which stays through to the end, the flavour expands to chocolate milk with notes of walnut backed by some bitter coffee to balance. Long bitter mouthfeel. Palate is light and a tad watery despite the long finish. This stout is fantastic! Definitely a favorite! Just slightly lighter than Guinness in all aspects.

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.

Tap. Pours very dark almost black. Large white head, decent lacing. Aroma of bakery fresh malt, roasted barley and caramel. Taste is of roasted malts and caramel. Creamy mouth feel. Very good stout.
