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.

Tessic (1131) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2012
This stout poured a deep black colour with a creamy, light brown head. To the nose there are scents of coffee, smoke, earthy aromas and light cocoa. First sip had a very creamy mouthfeel with flavours of roasted malt, smoke, coffee and burnt toast. Finish is smokey on the palate

Fantastic looking stout, black colour with a thick delicious creamy head. Roasted malt aroma. Nice flavour of roasted malt and sweet brown sugar. Smooth texture with a weak finish. Enjoyable beer, would make a good session stout.

It pours dark ruby almost black; the head is tan and nitro-luscious, like a pillow. The aroma has notes of: chocolate, coffee, and roast walnut. The taste is dry that finishes with a very light bitterness; there are notes of: liquorice, plum brandy, and roasted coffee beans. The palate is light bodied, watery, slightly oily, low carbonation, and a medium finish. Overall, lightly flavoured water.

Boutip (6208) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2012
Can: Poured a black color stout with a huge creamy head with great retention and some lacing. Aroma of faint black chocolate is a bit too light for my taste and probably diminished by the amount of nitro used in this can. Taste is also a bit bland with some light notes of chocolate and some light dry roasted notes. Body is a bit light with great carbonation. The nitro makes for a nice creamy taste but kills also lots of the flavour which isnt the best of things in this particular case.

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.
