Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with a nice half finger light brown head with great retention and nice lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, cocoa and milk chocolate, hint of vanilla. Flavor follows aroma with toasted malt with light char, cocoa, hints of vanilla and dark chocolate. Medium bodied with nice light creaminess. A very well made and to-style dry stout with great malt flavor with lighter chocolate and vanilla notes. Fairly dry, but but enough mild sweetness to bring out the flavors. Well done.

I usually think Irish Dry Stouts are a little underwhelming, but I guess that's just what Guinness conditioned me to think. This Chuli Stout is full of flavor. It's a good looking beer, with a mild aroma and a strong mouthful of roasty flavors. I don't get much sweetness, nor the chocolate that some others find. Lots of roasted malts, creamy mouthfeel. Very good stuff.

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.

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.

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.

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.
