Fairly light pour resulted in about a ½" head of fine bubbles almost like whipped egg whites (only tan, of course) that offer an unusual feeling while sipping, dark brown, almost opaque, head retention excellent, very good lacing. A little burning rubber, maybe a hint of molasses hits the nose. Letting it roll around in the mouth, taste is a bitterness akin to that of saffron, a little molasses and burnt sugar but not sweet, actually is somewhat on the dry side, an aftertaste that lingers. Mouthfeel is a little unusual due to the fine bubbles, seems to coat the mouth. Drinkability is okay, but a bit tiring.
Being what it is, Irish Dry Stout, it is not bad, just not one of my favourite styles. The stuff is Okay for an occasional visit but I prefer Extra Stout without the widget.
