3.43/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark brown, with a monster tall, dark cocoa-brown colored head. The side of the glass is just covered in clinging bubbles.

Aroma starts off with a nice, strong, mocha chocolate. However, it dissipates (probably along with the head) and now it's a struggle to find.

Flavor can be hard to unlock. I blame this on the bottle's over-carbonation. The bottle I'm finally reviewing has been refrigerated only for a while, and was poured very aggressively. With the bubbles released, I finally feel I can taste most of the flavors, at the cost of a little flatness. Flavor consists of a watery coffee and chocolate base with too much bitter aftertaste. The flavors are unfortunately just too weak to stand up to the dryness. Some light peat and smoke hidden in the roasts, but nothing like other reviewers have reported.

Mouthfeel without preparation (an ice cold opening) is overly carbonated, with an odd tonic water taste and feel. I'm hoping this is just a bottling problem. At the right temperature and aggressively poured: it was watery, a bit flat, but without the tonic water problems.

Drinkability was only average. Flavors were fleeting, I felt it too watery to enjoy, too carbonated, and too dry.

3.85/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

3.86/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

3.63/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

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.

3.8/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Near black with decent sized head.

Smell: Smoky and sweet peat, very light roast. The peat actually makes the aroma a little too one dimensional.

Taste: The peat dominates here as well, with smoky and sweet qualities. Some chocolate comes through from the roasted malts, but not as much of the bitter notes that are typically present in an Irish Dry Stout.

Feel: Smooth and creamy medium sized body. Moderately low carbonation. Finish is only semi-dry. This is a strong mouthfeel... for an ENGLISH Stout.

Overall: So this is not really the Irish Dry Stout it claims to be. That's okay, it is still mighty tasty, even if the peat is a little too strong and clashes with the roasted malt.

This ebony brew pours rich and velvetty into my glass producing a tall dense mocha head.
Very aromatic with hints of roasted malts smoky peet coffee and dark chocolate. This beer is quite tasty too, it follows the nose.
Roasted malts are dominate here and richly so. Along with that you get some smoky peet and ash. I don't mind the ashen taste and feel at all if you consider how it tastes and the complexity of said taste.
Drinks smooth with a dry finish. It's good and well made and pleasing all around.

3.48/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz.

Pours jet black with two inches of light tan head, fine and fluffy, with good retention.

Smells of chocolate syrup and bready malts and oats.

Light cocoa, slighty toasty oats and hints of coffee.

Light to medium body with light tingles of carbonation.

A fairly decent light strength stout that still delivers on flavor, but a little average in the flavor. Nothing bad about it and it's enjoyable, but nothing to make it particularly more appealing than any number of other solidly good stouts either.
