Yes, Arthur, there is another stout. Our Irish-style dry stout is brewed with four different malts, roasted barley and whole Chinook hops. We think itís the best thing this side of St. Jamesí Gate.

Pour is black with a small khaki colored head. Aroma is of rich roasted malts, coffee, and cocoa. Taste is very heavy on the roast with some burnt cocoa and grain undertones.

Draught. This is a nice simple Irish stout with lots of nice roasted maltiness. One of the better ones I tried.

Bottle, poured a dark brown color with aromas of roast, light earth, and some licorice. Flavors follow suit, mediocre stout overall.

Had on-tap @ Portsmouth Brewery yesterday around 4:00 pm. Pours nighttime charcoal with a fluffy, frosty off-biege head one-to-two fingers in length. Smells immediately of charcoal, campfire smoke, liquorice, hops and ginger. Tastes of roasted malts, milk sugar/chocolate milk, tobacco, caramel, hops and coffee dregs. Ends with a slighty buttered sour note. Viscous and chewy. Would have again, most definitely.

Another bottle opened by my buddy Joel. Gusher alert! Cracked the top and had to leave it in the sink for what seemed like an hour. Once I got a pour I could tell the beer was infected. Aroma of old sour milk, which didnít bother me all that much, since I enjoy a good sour stout every now and again, but the whole experience was somewhat of a wash.

On draft at Portsmouth Brewing. Pours a typical stout brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, earth, ash, and dark chocolate. Flavor is similar with roast, earth, and slight dark chocolate. Roasty and earthy overall.

Bottle thanks miamilice!. Pours black brown with a khaki soapy head that fades to a thin wispy film and a tight collar. Aroma is rich malt and coffee with subtle chocolate notes. Taste is big roasted malt and coffee note along with some burnt chocolate and peat. Palate is medium slick and chalky with a drying finish. really enjoyed this and wishing there was more!

MacBoost (1564) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Hand bottle from a tasting. Pours a clearish deep brown/black with a tan head. Very hoppy in the nose, along with a shitload of coffee. Very impressive initial taste, but it became cloying very quickly. Decent flavor, but too sweet to be world class.

5/9/12. 22oz bottle thanks to Arin! Black pour with a nice khaki head. Nice coffee aroma with dark chocolate. Nice coffee flavor with grains and roastiness. Reminds me of a dry Irish stout (well, I see now itís listed as such). Not bad!
