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.

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.

Great color, average stout flavors with a slightly thicker malt backbone than must Irish stouts. Honestly, i prefer this one over most dry stouts I've tried. It definitely gives you that meal in a glass mouth-feel, but is light enough to drink all day. Try this one, you wont be disappointed.

On draught at Humpy's, served in a Nonic, Chuli Stout is dark cola brown with a creamy tan head that leaves scattered lace.

Smell is roasty and chocolate, with a hint of diacetyl.

Taste is good, nice roasty chocolate, fairly full and satisfying, yet very smooth.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and light.

Drinkability was very good, tasty and well made stout.

Serving type: on-tap

I'm guessing on the exact style of stout here, correct me if I'm wrong. From notes. Nitro-tap at Cafe Amsterdam. Pours black, creamy tan head, great retention, waterfall action, thick lacing. SMELL is very faint and hard to find. Just a bit of roasted barley and malty sweetness. TASTE moderately strong roasty flavors, touch of malty sweetness, mild bitterness in the late middle and finish. Finishes dry. FEEL is luxuriously creamy, med body, mildly bitter and dry finish. OVERALL very flavorful and easy drinking stout. I'd take it over most true Irish stouts any day.

Serving type: nitro-tap
