O’Doyle a stout so creamy and so rich Low abv so there’s no need to switch Drink stout all night Roasty barley delight Poetry for beer is for certain kitsch An ode to a favorite movie of the 90’s, O’Doyle(which means Dark Foreigner in Gaelic) is a smooth, creamy Irish Stout made with loads of roasted barley and flaked grains. It is lower in alcohol, and this style is the standard drink of the emerald isle.

Found some notes from last month I’d better get in. Very big note of coffee roast and bitterness in the smell. Opaque black, with a thin ring of foam. Pushed by nitro, it was a nice Guinness mouthfeel. In the first sips, the coffee flavor settles on the tongue and then washes away to a nice dry stout finish.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Lombard, IL). Pours a rich blackish hue and some ruby brown edges, show some decent light and shine. A frothy tannish head sits atop, thick and inviting, sticks around as a firm film with gorgeous lacing. Aromas are mellow toffee and biscuits, gentle toast, black malts. Some cocoa, toffee, and roast is mellow, airy, and inviting. Touches of soda bread dropping quick into sticky malts. Initial is medium bodied offering firm black malts, soda bread, and some sweeter toffee. Touches of girth to the malt body offer cocoa, gentle roast, and mellow coffee. Middle shows more cocoa and mellow sweetness, very smooth and silky body is easily quaffable. Backend offers some dryness, toast, and seet sticky malts. A bit heavier than you’d expect on the palate, but the flavors are firm and enjoyable. Touches of cocoa and sweet sticky malts linger, some mellow roast, toast, and dryness picks up a bit. Ok. Not my style, but a bit big for it’s britches in my book.

On tap at the brewpub bar, displaying a darkest brown, ruby highlighted color, modest, tan, frothy head foam that diminished fairly quickly, and deposited some spots & streaks of lacing on the glass. The aroma was a dry, espresso roastiness, with a pleasant nuttiness blended in, and a slightly burnt/smoke scent. The flavor was similar, with a medium body, soft carbonation, light silk to the mouthfeel, and an appropriately bitter & dry finish. Tasty, and the sessionable nature was appreciated.
