O'Reilly's Irish Stout by Sly Fox is pretty much all one would ask for in a dry Irish Dry Stout. This beer, served on nitrogen, carefully poured at Local 44, is pitch black with a fluffy, 2.5 inches of beige meringue foam. The beer has just a faint wisp of chalky roasted grain. This beer tastes almost perfect. It is plenty dry with flavorful espresso and dark chocolate roasted flavors. The hop bitterness strong and a bit surprising considering the mellow hop flavors in Guiness, but it works well with the creamy, silky mouthfeel, accentuating the dryness of the beer. This is a pleasure to drink and at 3.6%, it is very easy to keep going with it all night long. The only thing was that the roasted grain and bitterness from hops made this just a bit too astringent, but overall, fantastic.

Serving type: nitro-tap
