COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Irish Channel Stout is our newest seasonal ale. Released in November, this is an American style stout that has sweet malt flavors of caramel and chocolate, complimented by a crisp bitterness produced by roasted barley and American Hops. The complex malt bill of pale and roasted malts result in this well balanced stout that is smooth, rich, dark and delicious! And watch out – ABV 6.8%! This seasonal will be available on draft through March.

Appearance: completely opaque black color, pours with a medium tan head Aroma: chocolate, coffee, dark roasted grain Taste: sweet chocolate, milk, some alcohol and bitterness on the finish Palate: very creamy mouthfeel, heavy, soft carbonation, bitter chocolate aftertaste Overall: the creamy mouthfeel of this beer is awesome, its pretty sweet with chocolate being the dominant part of the experience, it does have a bitterness to it too

Black body, frothy tan head. Foamy lace.

Bit too much carb for my liking, esp given the style. Chocolate and caramel malt take center stage. Bittersweet through the middle with a distinct, lingering hop profile. Like Guinness, but with actual flavor.

Can thanks to Lewis! Pours a very dark brown with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of dry roasted malts with a bit of smooth chocolate and dark grains. Flavor is similar with light roasted malts, a hint of chocolate, dark grains and a dry finish.

NOLA Irish Channel Stout has a thin, beige head, a deep, dark brown appearance, bubbles clinging to the glass, and some thin lacing left on the glass. The aroma is faint, but one can detect roasted malt and some sort of sweet cream. Taste is of sweet, dark-roasted barley malt, char, acidity, some bitterness, and a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel is light to medium and a bit slick, and NOLA Irish Channel Stout finishes mostly dry, a bit powdery, rich, and decently drinkable. No alcohol detected with this beer. RJT

this is an average beer that is made even worse by horrendous ownership. They actually emailed me to take down a review stating I had a bad beer. I said sure no problem if you send me a new one try I’ll gladly re rate. They then went mia. Not cool.

Taster at the brewery. Pours almost black with a creamy beige head and some lacing. Tastes like coffee, mild bitterness, bready. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like light chocolate and raisins.
