This tribute to St. Patrick’s Day is smooth and creamy, with the distinct flavors and aromas of bittersweet chocolate, coffee and dark roasted barley. Two precious batches of this robust, ebony colored stout are produced every year, one for St. Patty’s Day and one for Irish Fest. Best served at 50 degrees F.

About 4 months since St. Patty’s day and this beer just showed up on the local shelves. Seemed to still be in nice form, a hearty drinkable stout to say the least. Dark chestnut/brown pour with a lasting 1/2" head and mild lacing. Plenty of roasted malt and coffee aromas to keep my happy. Medium bodied stout that is smooth and drinkable. Creamy on the palate. Nuts, coffee and roasted malt flavors. Bitter chocolate finish with a buttery aftertaste. Minor hop presence, well balanced for a stout. Good brew.

Colour is dark chocolate almost black, head is medium sized tan colour. Aroma is of lightly roasted coffee, and possibly a little scotch. Taste is incredible, coffee, toffee and hint of smoke. Awesome beer!

Bomber bottle from Belmont Party. Pours black color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Medium roasted sweet malty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium chocolate bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a good smooth beer that was good with a grill dinner.

Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is light with some chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, smoke, and a little hop character. Flavor is bitter at first with roasted malts and coffee.That gives way to the chocolate and molasses. Dry, slightly bitter finish. Decent but not great.

Smokey, bitter coffee and burnt chocolate flavor at first sip. Ends with a hoppy & robust barely notes. I am not sure where the "irish style" fits into this. It certianly is a stylish stout though. Not too bad. I recommend if you like to try a wild stout

An absolutely marvellous brew!!! I bought this in a growler and it was outstanding. Lovely rich dark color, with a bittersweet nose and a clean, but not too clean finish. Completely delightful!!!!!!

16 oz. bottle. Pours black in color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is mainly roasted malts, light chocolate, and some metal. The flavor is straight forward roasted malts, dark chocolate, and perhaps a little dark fruit. Smooth, but thin. This is a decent , but average stout.
