This dry stout in the Irish tradition is black as coal and very smooth. Served with a creamy head, Irish stouts are not as bitter, roasty or strong as some other stouts.

    This seemed pretty spot on style wise to me, if not terribly exciting. Near black pour, smooth roast, light body. Wouldn't do the trick in the winter, but a nice end of summer beer for those in a dark beer mood. Nitro.

    Sampler @ River City -

    This beer just really fell flat on its face and just a poor showing. Dry stouts are hard to please anyways because they are designed for quaffing, not to stand up to a regular stout or even an impy stout. However, this just lacked any character in both the aroma and flavor department. It looked great with a dense tan head and dark black body, and the mouthfeel was silky. But that's about where the kudos stop. Zero aroma and zero flavor. I just got nothing from it. No sweetness, no roast...it's almost like they used a concentrate or something. Pretty lame.
