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.

Had this on draft at the avenue pub in nola. This a great stout that's well balanced. It's a little high on the Abv at 6+%.

Great beer. Surprising grape flavor but it's not strong. Better slightly smokey flavors. "Strong espresso front end, finished with a touch if bakers chocolate" roasted barley

Aurelius (4570) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Good can, suitable for warding off vampires when you’re passed out in a back alley in NOLA. Or taking with you to Father Patrick’s confessional. Huge, multi-toned tan head on a molasses-colored brew. Slightly smokey, chickory/coffee/parched soy nut aroma. Earthy, a little black olive, starchy, lightly sweet. Underbittered. Roast and soil aftertaste, body is a little on the light side. I was a tad disappointed. ABC, Betton.
