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.

16oz can pours brown black with 2 finger offwhite head. Nose is nutty coffee cream, vanilla, light chocolate and ash. Taste is light bodied, big nutty vanilla coffee, some dusty bitter chocolate, touch of dark fruit. Finishes mostly dry, bitter subtle roast coffee bean, cream, vanilla, cocoa. Decent.

I had this one for breakfast and it went very well. A creamy stout with a bit of a dry finish. Not too roasted, malty but not overly sweet. Pretty nice.

Can shared by "AKFaust". Colour...very dark brown with no head. Nose...roasted nuts, toasted malt and something kind of musty. Palate...basically roasty and dry with some notes of dark chocolate and cereal.

Dude this is good. It is entirely better than can Guinness. Sweet roast and chocolate aroma and flavors. Nice full palate with semi-dry finish. Nice long lingering roastiness. Pretty noticeable wack of hops at the end, almost too much but makes it fun.

Black pour, sizeable mocha head. Coffee, oak, roasted malt aroma. Espresso bitterness, strong roasted malt in taste. Heavier body and slick mouth feel. I dig.

tricyclist (1096) - Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Pretty solid offering. Large draught sample of darkness with a lighter caramel head. Nose is sweet roasted malts, nicely balanced. More chocolate than coffee but a little bitter and a little sweet. Flavor follows with a quite smooth finish.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Deep black pour. The aroma is quite roasty. Lots of rich bitter chocolate and a big middle maltiness. There is a lot of coffee on the back of the palate. There is a great bit of earthy hoppiness with a touch of rich bitterness on the back of the palate. There is a fairly nice flavour. Good balance. Pretty tasty.
