3.63/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Appearance: Pitch black body. Sand colored head. Sticky lacing lingers around for a bit but dissipates throughout.
Smell: Floral notes up front, toasted barley and grains follow.
Taste: The hops stand out. A slightly warm body stands behind a good hit of hops. The barley and grains kick in and mellow it out pretty quick. The finish is semi-sweet and dry.
Overall: Not a bad Irish Dry Stout by any means. This has a rather light body, making this a great session stout. My only complaint is that it is a bit too sour up front for my liking. This is certainly a classic and is worth enjoying every once in awhile.
Serving type: bottle
