COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roasted barley is the trademark of stout, a bittersweet separation from its cousin Porter. Our deep black stout is made with a grist containing 15% organic oatmeal to create its remarkable silky texture.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
2012-08-17. Very dark brown black body with a modest tan head. Pretty sweet flavour, mild sweet malt core, dry roast slowly builds as you go. Sweet finish then dry dusty malt in thee aftertaste. Smooth average plus palate is softly carbonated and a touch light for a stout. Mild aroma of dusty malt and light roast, whispers of cocoa. Solid but fairly simple. On tap at Selins Grove, Pennsylvania

GT2 (7901) - Carlsbad, California, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Tap at Selins Grove. Deeper clear cola with dense, coffee foam. Great retention. Thick, malty nose with maple and brown sugar. Taste is dry, sharply bitter with big brown sugar and thick rustic maltiness. Excellent roast character. Comes across as porter or schwarzbier. Very clean but thinner. Palate is weak. Malt driven. Lighter for style. Now that I see the abv, well, there you go.

Dark chocolate and molasses nose. Rich chocolate, light toffee, molasses and a soft and creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.
