Got this from Adam in AK with a couple of his home brews. Thanks!!

It's black, the pour brought a 1 finger head of tan foam that lasts and lasts and when I check my glass after sipping, the lacing is good.

The smell is very roasty with notes of dark chocolate and that certain aroma that tells you that this is an Irish Dry Stout.

Very dry tasting indeed. Loads of roasted malt and some chocolate with a rather stinging bitterness that enforces the dry. It drinks a wee bit stronger than the 5.9% to me but no matter. This is bloody excellent!

Poured from 12oz can into my Schlafly tulip.

Appearance: extremely dark brown with just some brown highlights around the edges when held up to the light. Head pours two fingers of frothy dark-tan foam. Quite attractive indeed.

Smell: nicely roasty aroma with just a little chocolate character and no acidic astringency. Smooth and enticing; quite good.

Taste: roasty and dry, but still smooth and not overly astringent. A tough balance to strike -- this is a quality brew. One of the best dry Irish stouts I've tasted.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation and a rough creaminess. I like it.

Overall: an excellent example of the style. Highly drinkable and definitely worth a try if you're into dry stouts.

A- Jet black color always has a great creamy head between 1/3-3/4" with great retention and rather thin for the style

S-Rather uninspiring smell of toasty malts, very little else to comment on here, of course this is in line with the style

T- Wow, much better than the smell, a cornucopia of different malty flavors from rich complex dark malts to lighter malts with a more tart, spicy flavor near the finish, much more flavor than the Guinnesses of the world.

M-Light with a slight chewiness that always makes you smack your lips and suck the delicious nitro foam off your upper lip.

O- an excellent example of the style that is always welcome as a final beer of the night when I am out and about throughout Anchorage, Its mouthfeel and appearance is very much in line with Guinness, with a more complex flavor and a little more ABV to back it up.
