You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the simplicity of this Classic Stout! It has an alluring malt profile based on domestic 2 row and roasted barley. Flaked barley is added to increase body, sweetness, and head retention. A very meager East Kent Goldings hop addition of was added at the beginning of boil. The hops merely balance this beer rather than providing a significant flavor contribution.

This is my first Mountain Sun visit- so far so good! Pleasing and accurate Irish stout aroma. Taste is smooth, and dry which fits the bill sometimes. Well done.

Draft at vine street. Pours coca cola brown with an inch of nitro khaki foam. Nice roasted malt on the tongue. As advertised its a bit dry on the tongue. Could use a bit more hop dryness in the finish though.

drjay44 (2617) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Sampler at the brewpub. Pours a medium beige head, with attractive lacing, over an almost black (SRM 35) body....nose is coffee, light chocolate.........taste is grain, light coffee.....mouth feel light, carbonation low. This fits well within the style, although the roasted malts are a bit unblanced towards coffee over chocolate. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6
