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.

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.

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 (8962) - 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.

Immediate tastes of espresso on the tongue followed by caramel, malts, and subtle bitter chocolate on the finish. I didn't get much from nosing this beer, which gave my tastebuds quite a surprise when I took my first flavor filled sip. This is really a nice stout to sit and savor. The flavors really begin to open up as the beer warms a little in the glass. Even poured from a can, this stout held a nice dark foamy head for quite some time. Definitely a beer that I will come back to again. NOLA has yet to disappoint me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BadAprilia1000 (372) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Pours like motor oil. Nice thick caramel head that stays. Aroma is of coffee, espresso, smoke, chocolate, pine, caramel, honey, and sweet chocolate. Tastes of milk chocolate, espresso, pine trees, coffee, caramel, roasted malt. Mouth feel on this is very good. It is silky smooth and the way the flavor comes across the tongue is amazing. Highly recommend this beer.

Black with a thick velvety head. Chocolate and caramel aromas. A very good beer all around. I love a good stout, and I highly recommend this one.

16oz can poured to pint glass. Rich black opaque color with one finger thick tan head that dissipates quickly, nice moderate lacing. Earthy dark chocolate aroma. Mocha and dark chocolate flavors throughout with very little bittering from hops or black patent malt. Cheers!
