COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Stout is a dry Irish style stout. The dark color of the beer comes from a mixture of roasted barley and chocolate malt (chocolate malt has a chocolate color, and doesn’t actually have chocolate in it.) The thicker texture is from an addition of flaked, unmalted barley. Flake barley is similar to rolled oats (oatmeal.) The stout is bitter, yet in balance with all the other heavy flavors in this beer. The nitrogen gas tapping system produces the thick, creamy head. Nitrogen bubbles are smaller and do not burst as easy.

The aroma is chocolate and chocolate. A decent head of a creamy off white brown and the beer was black as black. It was chocolately and bitter a great combo. There was little carbination and it had a medium/heacy body and very smooth. A good brew

I am an old softy when it comes to stouts. This was a typical dry stout. Deep rich chocolate aroma. Tan head with an almost black body. Very easy to drink beer. If darker beers are your thing, then this one is a good try while there.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 Nitrogen tap. Pours deep black with a medium creamy brown head that laces well. Aroma is classical roasted malt, coffee, with notes of chocolate. Flavor is medium sweet roasted malt and chocolate. No real bitterness for me.

Draft, on nitrogen. Smooth with a tall thick head, per the pour. Rich chocolate flavors without much sweetness. Overall good stout.

Draft at brewery. Inky black with small creamy head. Aroma is coffee and burnt toast. Taste also focuses squarely on the roast grains, pretty bitter. Nice feel.

j12601 (13093) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2017
On a nitro tap at the brewery. Pours a deep cola brown with a medium sized white head that actually sticks around. Roast and cocoa on the nose, chocolate and a bit of bitter coffee. Medium bodied to start, but it this right out and falls into the nitro abyss where mouthfeel goes to die. This would be a better beer with regular carbonation. Slow roast into the finish.

3.4
yespr (47382) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2009
From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black with a small, tan and creamy head. Hardroasted dark malt aroma. Sweet malt flavoured, light roasted and slight toffee. Smooth malty and subdued roasted finish.
