COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry and smooth, this very sessionable stout comes in at 4.0% alcohol content. Our subtle addition is a touch of peat smoked malted barley. Smoked over a peat-fueled fire, this malt adds a layer of smokiness to the more traditional dark malt flavors. A taste of that smokiness is complimented with a smooth roasted finish. Slainte!

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Tap at the brewery. Nice aroma of peat smoke and coffee. Dark brown coffee color. Thin brown to tan head. Flavor was strong malts, with coffee, burnt caramel, and smokey. Bitter and a bit lively on the palate. Very nice overall, considering I do not care for smoked stouts.

I didn’t get a whole lot of the peat in this beer. A smooth stout with a bit of smoke in the finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown/almost black color with a small creamy khaki head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, smoke, and a hint of vanilla. Taste is much the same. Smoke, chocolate, roasted and caramel malts, peat, and vanilla.

zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 28, 2014
tap at gingerman. Chocolate and roasted barley hulls. Touch of charcoal and rich dark malts. Big beer perfect for cold weather drinking... wanted a bit more smoke on this, but tasty overall.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Draft at Ginger Man. Pours near black with a beige head. Medium smoked and roasted malts, nothing over the top, with a lighter sweetness, faint coffee, and a relatively dry smoked malty finish. Full bodied for the 4% ABV, and extremely sessionable. My pint disappeared in probably 15 minutes. Oops.

snoworsummer (1931) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a thin, fizzy beige head. Tastes like smoke, malt, corn, grains, earth. Dry feel. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like smoke, malt, and seltzer.

sonnycheeba (3362) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2013

Flavor is dry roasted and smoked malts forward with some chocolate and faint dark fruit esters; dry finish with heavy carbonation leave a soda water finish. Medium body and high carbonation.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Proletariat, NY tap: Pours black with small creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, bit of smoke, and a hint of chocolate. The peatiness of this beer is somewhat unwarranted coming from a true peat smeller such as myself. Taste isn’t too bad. Normal stoutish with just a hint of smoke. Not too impressed.

dvw1961 (1) - Newburgh, New York, USA - APR 17, 2013 does not count
The best local brewed Stout I have tasted. Smooth to drink with a pleasant smoky taste that leaves no bitter aftertaste. Doesnt give you that to full feeling. This one I could drink all night.

Slipstream (1985) - USA - NOV 25, 2012
From another promising new brewery comes this smoky release. Draft from The Growler Station and also at Good Beer. Not that stout, more like a brown ale or porter, with a little orange and coffee, and plenty of peat smoke flavor. It tastes fairly robust, but the ABV is pretty low. Good stuff - I look forward to seeing more releases from Newburgh.
