Well done dry Irish stout. While not as full bodied as I'd like, the taste is really good and consistent. Decent amount of chocolate and mild spiciness that complements the light alcohol. Easy to drink and not overly filling. Not the biggest head in the world, but the color is nice and even. An easy drinker that you could enjoy year round. Probably my favorite from this brewery.

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.

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!
