Considerable amount of head sits on top and makes for a great color contrast. The dark black color of the beer with the light mocha head.
Aroma is pretty sutle but there is considerable amounts of roasted almost burnt malt smell.
Like in the nose lots of roasted nearly burnt malts some bitter cocoa and coffee are in there too.
Drinks smooth on the palate and drinks dry as well.
A very good stout.
Serving type: nitro-tap

My first review ... hang with me.
Got this beer on tap, not nitro, which definitely hindered the appearance at first pour.
A: Dark-amber to black. Very thin cream head - less than two fingers, which disappointed a bit for a beer of this style. Again, perhaps the service style contributed to this?
S: Subtle, but nice. Slightly burnt yet sweet.
T: Rather watered-down for a stout. The smokey burnt flavor is there, but is very subtle. A surprising amount of bitterness lingers - the taste doesn't suggest such flavor hides within.
M: Again, a bit watery for the style. Thin.
O: An average brew.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the Phoenixville brewpub. Classic look on nitro; hey black with a big tan head that hangs around forever and a sheets of creamy lacing clinging all over the sides of the glass. Spot on. Aroma is straightforward; roasty and charred, with notes of bittersweet chocolate and, to a lesser extent, black coffee.
The flavor reverses the nose; it's still quite roasty tasting, but the bitter black coffee note is much more prominent than the chocolate. It's also exceptionally dry, probably more so than any other example of the style I've had.
Medium thin bodied with lowish carbonation and a very smooth and creamy overall mouthfeel. Quite a good Irish stout that takes the "dry" designation seriously.
