Had on-tap at Smoke in Newport News, VA. Didn't know O'Connor made a stout! This was outstanding, and may be my new favorite of theirs (El Guapo and Spyhop are also favorites). To me, the word "Dry" didn't seem appropriate though. I liken the flavor to Guinness Foreign Extra, which I consider to be deep, balanced, and a touch sweet.

I hardly ever order two of the same beer in a row, but I did that with this beer. Highly recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a blackish body w/ 2-finger head that took forever to die and left a lace ring down entire glass on top of a dry, mostly roasted malt aroma but dark chocolate and toffee slip in there. Smooth and easy to drink, this is a good beer but the taste profile is a little subdued. Some roasted malts along w/ a dry, breadish edge, there is also some sweetness from cholocate and toffee (not so much caramel). Basically, an enjoyable if simplistic stout that balances a mild sweetness some dryness for a good, if not great, stout.

On tap at the brewery (Thanks Baber). This is actually called O'connor Dry Irish Stout.

A: Pours a deep chocolate brown with a two finger head. Classic nitro presentation.

S: Light chocolate, toffee, and char. Subdued but still inviting.

T: Dominated by chocolate and dry char. A nice sweetness sneaks in to invite another sip.

M: Creamy nitro mouthfeel. Exactly what I expected and desired from this style and its niche.

D: Very, very high. If I didn't have to drive I could have sat and drunk this all evening.

O'Connor is making big moves in the Tidewater, VA brewing community and I wish them all the best.

Poured from tap at Jack Quinn's in downtown Norfolk. Nitro carb. Decent 1/2 inch tan head. Black appearance.

Not much aroma to be had. Smooth body and mouthfeel. Perfect carbonation. I had 3 pints. Coffee and chocolate flavor. Slight slight bitterness. No hop aroma. Dry. Great session beer!

Maybe my favorite offering from O'Connor brewing!
