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.

Sammy (11177) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2009
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub Another master craftmanship by this brewpub. Only mild roast, and only 4.8% a.b.v. Very opaque brown with a light brown head. Taste a bit as if on nitro-tap. Creamy mouthfeel consistent with that. Cold coffee and chocolate, great bittersweetness.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

jercraigs (9849) - 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

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Served on nitro with a firm but fluffy ice cream brown colored head that seemed to last throughout the drink. Huge, rich chocolate and oatmeal nose, somewhat sharp and biting, then oily and "crusty", the oak flakes are incredibly penetrating and rich, and there’s a really interesting dark fruit (plum, black cherry, etc) flavor that develops on the back and in the finish, that’s not sugary or sweet but rather woody and chocolaty, like a dark chocolate covered cherry. Heavy char and roast in the nose, while the body (nitro) is smooth and silky up front before becoming more aggressive and roast-heavy (coarse) over the middle. A very, very good stout.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
[4670-20120817] Tap. Roasted smoky grains and dry wood aroma. Murky, dark brown black body with a long-lasting creamy light tan head. Smoky roasted grains flavour has a long aftertaste of burnt cigarette ashes and smoky kindling. Full body. Overpowering! (7/3/6/3/13) 3.2

Nitro pour. Pours deep brown with a beige nitro head. Medium roasted malts, some nutty and chocolate sweetness, and faint earthy notes. Nice.
