http://duesouthales.com/jm/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=57&Itemid=63 -Brewed as an American Stout, this beer has a bit more gravity than the average Irish Stout. Starting with the creamy head that stouts are know for, this beer continues with a full mouthfeel and finishes with a roasted cocoa flavor. Delivered at the brewery using nitrogen instead of CO2, this beer takes a bit longer to pour but is definitely worth the wait. Interesting Fact: There are a number of ways to impart chocolate flavor into a beer. For this beer, grains do part of the job, but it's the cocoa nibs which add most of it. The nibs allow the cocoa flavor in this beer to come through without too much sweetness like would be the case if we added processed chocolate.

    I'm thinking the porter may be slightly better. Wish I had a little more of this to sample, but only had a quick 12 oz. to slam while they were filling a few small growlers. I am liking this new brewery. Not quite Cigar City or St. Somewhere quality, but good east coast FL brew. A little thin for a stout, but the "dry stout" classification explains that. I also prefer sweet stouts...this could use a bit more malt, but again..."dry/Irish stout". Sometimes sweet stouts are done too sweet and ruins the balance, so this one actually works very well, along with decent texture. They didn't offer growler fills for this one, otherwise I would have done that. It is good enough to get again though next time available.

    Forced carbonation was used in this one so I couldn't take a growler home. Disappointment. A reddish brown colored beer with a big foamy textured white head that stays around for awhile. Thick film and ringlet are left. Cocoa is the profile with a touch of roastiness. Smooth bodied. I liked.
