COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uncle Steve’s Irish Stout is Short’s version of the classic Irish Stout, complete with a dark color, soft head, and smooth full flavor typical of this lighter bodied beer. A simple grist formula provides a base of roasted malt flavors, while the infusion of nitrogen adds the creamy drinkability everyone loves.

SpongeRuiner (659) - Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2014
A big coffee smell. A dark brown color with a dark nice looking head. Not a ton of flavor. But still not bad.

djd07 (3335) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is raisin, roast, and coffee. Thin mouthfeel with light roastiness and smoke finish. Good dry stout.

HopCat in East Lansing. Nitro Infused. The pour is quite dark, with a thin head and some minor lacing. The aroma is a sweet coffee, almost overwhelmed with vanilla and the subtlety of cocoa. A roasted malt tone joins late, and adds a nice complexity. The taste is surprisingly, not necessarily good, sweet. The vanilla and cocoa take a back seat to a sweet coffee that is less than ideal. The mouth feel is thin for a stout, and even though I might not want this particular flavor to last too long, some longevity would help its cause I believe.

Bottle. Black, almost no head, medium body. Moderate flavors, nothing too prominent. Finish lingers a bit. Okay stout

superspak (2455) - Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 2/25/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense tan head with good retention that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, light char, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, light char, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Light coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, light roast, light smoke, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of dark roasted malt flavors; with big robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent dry stout! All around great balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Draft at Reno’s East (from backlog). Chocolaty, malty and creamy. Tons of flavor for such a light body and low ABV.
