Poured into a english pint glass, the stout had a soft sweet aroma, and a definite peat reek present, but not overpowering.

Nice dark sandy flat-like color. Dark tan head dissipates except a skim, the lacing clings, and slides down the glass nicely.

Nice, and heavy in mouth, slightly dry from start to finish. The brewery says the peated malt is from England, but is sparsely added. It is a nice touch to a genuine tasting stout. It does not overpower. Its like sipping a wee dram during your beer. Not a heavy peated Islay scotch, just a Johnny Walker, or J&b. The sweet background is nice, cinnamon hint, its a good balance to the dryness.

This is a overall excellent beer on this cold January night thats dipping to - 0. A good flavorful stout. I meant to pick up a certain Imperial Stout tonight, wasn't available, this was a great substitute.

Pours a nice, dense, tan head that collapses to a soft, pillowy head with great persistence. Aroma is dominated by roasted malt which has a coffee-like acidity. Black. Starts acidic and with roasted malt. Moves into a medium-low hop bitterness as a slightly smoked characteristic builds with the acidity to make a very coffee-like finish.

Overall, I like this alot. It's a slight smokiness, and it is blended just perfectly off the toasted malt. Would like to see it a bit thicker, though. Maybe a touch less acidic. But, otherwise, the flavor is excellent.

Poured into an Olde Hickory glass on 1/28/13

Pours a seep, tobacco stained brown. The head was reluctant to rise at first, though it managed just over two fingers. The foam collapses to smooth retention and a solid sheet of lace.

The aroma is dry and brief. Notes of dark roast, semi-sweet chocolate and a little earth. Overtones of coffee beans. It takes a fair amount of opening up to reveal the smoked peat (it's more smoky than peaty).

On the other hand, the taste is mostly peat while the smoke is minimal. Tangy roast with undertones of dark grains. The middle has a decent spot of chocolate. Moderate, prickly hops. It evens out over time.

The feel is perhaps my biggest gripe, as it's high in carbonation for my liking. The body is probably a medium, maybe medium-light, but the carbonation makes for a staccato feel. The flavors are such I'd like it to stick around a bit longer.

Apparently I had this sitting in the fridge since last August. I'm glad I finally got around to trying it. It don't recall like an Irish Dry Stout more than this.

I always have a lot of expectation for a beer that refuses the penetration of light. This black offering comes from a style I have no experience with: Irish Dry Stout. I've had many stouts but I don't recall a category for either Irish or Dry. I like Russian Imperial stouts and choclate or coffee stouts. I certainly can pick up the "dry" quality of this beer - but the Irish escapes me - perhaps because I am unfamiliar with the style. What was immediately both present, overriding and persistant was the smoke. I've had beers with a hint of smoke, but this was overpowering. Last time I recall that smell was when I was going through very old, musky, burned out, wet wood buildings looking for salvage. Burned out carbon. Because I am not a fan of smokey flavors (other than from those of beef & pork briskets) - and I have had many "winter beers" favoring this smoke characteristic -I have yet to have one that I would ask for by name. Again - just not a fan - for those who like this characteristic - kudos. The appearance was very promising, the mouthfeel right on but the flavor too smokey.
