Irish Dry Stout |  6.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A traditional Irish Dry Stout, it is a full, richly flavored beer with a roasted, coffee-like taste and a hint of chocolate, balanced with an abundant hop profile that delivers a satisfying dry finish. A thick creamy head rests on top and holds the rich roasted aromatic qualities in the glass. This is truly the darker side of sin!

Dark black with a fluffy tan head. Roasty malt, and chocolate smell. Creamy, yet thin body. Thin flavor of chocolatey roasty malt. Not really much bitterness or any hop presence. Alcohol is very prevalent in this one and it is quite watery. Not very good, but I've had much worse.

Serving type: on-tap

Served on nitro-draught into a plastic cup at the Miracle Mile location. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were low. Paired with pretzels. Props for choosing nitro; I wouldn't expect that from a seemingly tourist trap brewery.

A: Pours a half finger head of nice thickness, good cream, and good retention. Colour is a solid black. Appealing.

Sm: Vanilla and cream. A mild strength aroma.

T: Cream, light vanilla, and very light caramel. Simple for a stout, but creamy and pleasant nonetheless. Nitro-draught was a good choice. It's nicely balanced as well.

Mf: Creamy, smooth, and wet. Downright wrong for a dry stout. Where's the dryness? Doesn't suit the beer (or the style).

Dr: Very drinkable, but more like a porter than a stout. Expensive and of limited quality on account of its simplicity.

Serving type: nitro-tap

I had this beer on tap at the Monte Carlo Brewpub in Las Vegas (served in a weizen glass). I found this beer to be quite boring in character.

The beer poured a not-quite-opaque red-black, with a fair amount of light tan head. There was no aroma. It was served rather cold, but exhibited only a faint amount of light roastiness. I found this beer to be disappointingly approachable. Mouthfeel is smooth but a bit flat and watery. Not a very exciting beer.

After sitting and sipping on the Amber and Weiss, I got the Stout to go. This is the one non-German beer on tap at the taproom.

The Irish-type stout begins with a toasty, German Dunkel aroma, more timid than found in the classic Irish stouts. Otherwise clean maltiness prevails with a touch of malty caramel, no real fruitiness or off-notes.

A ligher than average hue allows a lot of amber highlighs underneath a timid head formation and retention. Pretty average appearance.

Flavors show the same timid malt presence as found in the aroma, with a toasty caramelly flavor. Again, no fruitiness, phenolics, or yeasty spices found in taste.

Well attenuated and clean, the beer thereafter suffers from under-malting and light graininess late. Finishes clean and crisp but with a lingering grain flavor and feel.

Not an offensive beer, just a bit lackluster for my taste as a stout. I may have a better take if it were a Dunkel.

Into a plastic cup (doh!)(Vegas, stock), pours a cascading dark brown with a nice off white head that stayed around for a surprisingly long time. The aroma was light, maybe some chocolates in there. Taste had some nice caramels and roasted malts, stock. The mouth was nice and creamy smooth, good carbonation, easy to drink. Nothing great, nothing bad, a definitely good pickup when walking around one of Vegas's 400 malls on the strip.

A - A flat muted black color... The head was epic and amongst the best I've ever encountered on a stout or porter... A caramel colored light fluffy latte like head exhibited stellar retention throughout the session...

S - The aroma was a slight let down as it proved to be weak and faint overall... There were hints of roasted malt... Butter... Cream... Coffee...

T - Roasted malt dominated the palette, but wasn't strong overall... A faint hint of baker's chocolate and coffee beans... Overall, all flavors were rather subdued, but still enjoyable...

M - Rich and creamy to start, but quickly turns dry and slightly bitter at finish... Excellent texture that is enjoyable sip after sip...

D - Another solid offereing from Sin City... As seems to be the case, they make accessible and enjoyable beers, but ones that are slightly above average and far from the head of the class for their respective styles...
