COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
O’Casey’s Irish Stout is a very smooth, dry, Irish-style stout. O’Casey’s is brewed only once a year and in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. The beer is poured on nitrogen, which serves to enhance the beer foam and smooth the overall flavor while adding visual appeal. The product is very dark in color. The beer has moderate bitterness balanced by a slight acidity and creamy mouthfeel. Deceptively easy to drink. Widmer’s lowest alcohol beer.

Nitro at Widmer... Poured almost black with amber highlights and thick, light brown head. Malty aroma. Nice roasted coffee notes with dark chocolates and creamy texture. Not hoppy or bitter at all with a strong malted grain character through to the finish.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2004
On tap at the widmer brewery. Pours a dark red/brown, almost black with a tan head that stays forever leaving thick lacing on the glass. Roasty coffee aroma with a faint hop profile behind it. Taste is incredibly smooth and creamy, still on the thin side, as widmer’s stouts tend to be.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2004
Tap@Widmer. I guess you could say that this is a textbook Irish stout, but one which doesn’t go over the top. Dry roasty mocha and chocolate, creamy and dry, coffee. A little bit thin though, still OK.

O’Casey’s Irish Stout on Tap at the Gasthaus
Dark ruby black with tan head & some sticky lacing. The aroma is very dry & lightly roasted. Mouthfeel is creamy & sweet (bland) - nitro. The flavor has a snatch of roast but is creamy & mild.

The bartender called this O'Caseys Irish Stout, and it is not actually a Widmer recipe, but is part of the Collaborator series of recipies from the Oregon Brewers Guild, a homebrew association. They hold regular contests, and the winners have batches of their brew made on Widmers premises, and put on a few local taps, including the Horsebrass Pub, and New Old Lompoc. Anyway, this was on nitro, so had a creamy long lasting head atop a black body, with a nice dry stout bitterness, a tad sweeter than Guinness. Actually quite good.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Good thick head that provided nice lacing all the way down. Very full bodied for a dry stout, hearty. However, the taste was somewhat lacking. Overall a good beer, much better than Guinness.
