look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

served on nitro-tap on the porch of the brewpub, served in shaker glass.

appears jet black, with nice 1/2" thick creamy head, as expected from a nitro pour. looks great. aroma is typical for the style, roasty malt smell, not particularly strong. the taste has a bit more flavor than most Irish Dry Stouts, it almost has a spicy aftertaste that I like. Mouthfeel is great, nice and creamy and easy to drink.

Forget the Guinness, seek out a pint of this stuff.
