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.

JulienHuxley (3472) - Hilversum, - MAR 29, 2013
On tap at some London restaurant. Nice opaque black pour with very rich, very creamy off white head. Aroma is potent for something served with beergas, nice crisp roasted grain aroma, burnt grain, light coffee, super clean yet not dull. Strong roasty flavor, coffee. Very drinkable and light on the palate despite low carbonation, bone dry. Strong showing.

exeter (362) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a tan head and nice lacing. Taste is roasted malt with coffee and dark chocolate. Pretty normal for a stout, but nothing stands out as exceptional but I’d have it again.

Listigovers (367) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Dark malt aroma with slight sour scent, pours black with a tan nitro head. Very smooth palate due to the nitro, medium bodied, fairly strong flavour, burnt flavours, dry, chocolatey, medium length finish. Nice smooth stout.

On tap at Barley Brothers. Dark brown pour with a classic thick creamy nitro head. Aroma is sweet and creamy, with vanilla, toasted nuts and nougat. Flavour is malty, a bit of chocolate and coffee, touch of vanilla. Body is very light and somewhat watery, smooth with low carbonation.

deepeary (169) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
On tap at Spirits. Really nice creamy head that smears all over the glass. Classic dry stout notes, bitter, roasted grains, some anice/licorice, dark chocolate. Tame and balanced as the style calls for. Nice.

Pours a dark black oil like color. Minimal dark tan head with no lacing present. Aroma is chocolate malts and coffee. Taste is on par with aroma. This is a great stout

Metalflake (6) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014 does not count
440ml can from the LCBO, poured into a pint glass. Poured deep brown/black, with little to no head and just a thin ring of foam around the edge. No lacing to speak of on the glass. Aroma - roasted malts and coffee, wood smoke, perhaps a hint of vanilla. Taste - again, lots of malt, sweeter than I expected but not cloyingly so. Coffee too, but not much else - thin and watery feel on the palate, low carbonation, reminds me of bottled Guinness. Hops are way back in the wings, drying out the finish but never asserting themselves in a significant way. Overall a pleasant stout, very drinkable, but not memorable. Puts me in mind of winter nights at the pub, quaffing pints of Guinness or Murphy’s over steak pies, chips & gravy.

Fantastic dry stout. Pours near black with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Incredibly smooth and tastes great with a finishing taste of cover and dark chocolate.

cheap (4205) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2014
From a big can this has thing that sizzles inside once you pop the top. One of the nicest pours youll see. Just a simple beery smell. Good mild flavors of roasted yumminess.No real alky in yer face, just a simple emjoyable dark beer. However, being a spoiled american, it would be nice to have a little co2 sizzle in this. Yea, never could get used to those cask or nitro beers.
