COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We produce a traditional styled Irish Stout that is served using beer gas to produce that familiar creamy pour. Our black stout has a roasted malt flavour and a hint of toasted walnuts and choclate in the finish. Select imported hops are used to dry out the finish of this ale.

Dark chocolate pour with a small milk chocolate head. Slight nuttiness in the aroma. After concentrating on Imperial Stouts, the flavour can seema bit weak, but theres a nice touch of chocolate with a nice dry finish. Very east drinking.

Nov 28 2012. 440ml can explodes from nitrogen spilling into tumbler with 4 inch brown fizz forming the 3 finger fluffy tan head. Beer is solid black. Beautiful. Aroma of malts, walnut and chocolate. First sip is chocolate milk. Once through the head, which stays through to the end, the flavour expands to chocolate milk with notes of walnut backed by some bitter coffee to balance. Long bitter mouthfeel. Palate is light and a tad watery despite the long finish. This stout is fantastic! Definitely a favorite! Just slightly lighter than Guinness in all aspects.

Deep dark black with thick creamy head that sticks. Roasted malt notes. Some coffee. Very smooth on the palate. Finishes strong and a little bitter. Very good.

Aroma is soft - molten milk chocolate, very little hop aroma coming through - maybe a bit floral. Beer is a dark brown, some translucency. Head is beautiful - tan, and persistent. Not much complexity to the taste, but good: mellow chocolate taste ending slightly roasted and bitter. Very enjoyable and easy to drink, carbonation is just right, mouthfeel is spot on. No astrigency. Overall a great drinking beer. I could have a few of these.

Well done Mill Street! Another notch on the belt! I bought this as part of a stout tasting in preparation for a batch of chocolate double oatmeal stout I am getting ready to tap. It pours like Guinness out of the can and cascades down he glass for about 30 s nods before settling with a thick creamy head. The nitrogen pack gives it that fresh draft taste with a hint of chocolate, coffee and malt tastes quickly sweeping he palate. Its bitter, but not overly so, perfectly balanced IMHO. Its to Guiness, dont expect that. Its more of a British style stout than Irish. All around great beer.

Wow. Kudos Mill Street. This is excellent. 440mL can. Explodes out of the can and starts to foam immediately. Nice, long lasting head. Smooth on the palate, chocolate and roast flavours. Long smooth finish. Highly recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this beer on draft and recently from can and the draft just seemed way better. It seemed as thought the aromas were much more pronounced on draft and the mouthfeel much better. I loved in on draft and was disappointed when I brought the can home.

Frothmeister (753) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2012
440ml can. Pours black with a thick beige head. Gosh darnit, nitro stouts are pretty. Aroma is dark malts, with heavy cocoa (almost chocolate milk), mineral notes, faint coffee, and biscuity notes. Mmm. The taste is faint cocoa, espresso, molasses, and mineral notes. Not bad, but definitely TOO thin bodied. A decent local alternative to Guinness, but as far stouts go, you can do MUCH better.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2012
Pours deep black with a fine, nitrogenated cream head that lasts forever. Aroma is dark malt, some slight earthiness, and a bit of yeast. The taste is medium malt, with toasty-coffee bitterness up front, and mild hop bitterness on the finish. Low carbonation, medium body, nicely balanced.

473 mL can. Pours creamy, foamy brown. Lovely looking beer. Aroma isnt much, but the flavour has a lovely chocolate note, and the flavour lacks the note of tin you often find in this style. Better than many of the more popular versions of the style.
