Commercial Description

Formerly known as O’Bryan’s Irish Stout 
A Nitro Irish Dry Stout - We are rolling out a much anticipated nitrogenated version of an Irish Dry Stout. This is the Church Brew Works version of the national Irish beverage, the Dry Stout, the benchmark of which is Guinness Stout. We did some experimenting and made a Nitro version. What does this mean you ask? Instead of straight CO2 as in most beers, we gassed it with Carbon dioxide and then with Nitrogen. The resulting bubbles contain a mix of the two gasses. Draught Nitro stouts are usually poured through a special faucet that promotes gas breakout. With this in mind, a pint of O’Bryan’s Irish Stout will have a black color and a tight tan head that will hold for a much longer period of time. It will go down smooth, and due to a lower dissolved CO2 level in the beer it will not have a prickly bite on your tongue. Notice just after the beer is poured, the bubbles cascade in the glass creating a nice visual. The color is so dark you needn’t bother trying to look through it. Just have another glass. O’Bryan’s Irish Stout has an aroma that is dominated by dark roastiness with little or no hop aroma. The body is perceived as bigger than it actually is due to the creaminess added by the mixed gas dispense. The foremost flavor is dark roasted malt with a bit of a rich caramel note. You will also discover a well balanced hoppy finish.
