look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark black with some light ruby tones around the edges. Small tan head that fades quickly.

S: Lots of roasted malt character in the aroma. Hints of dark chocolate and coffee.

T: Toasted malt upfront. Same as the aroma, bittersweet chocolate, fresh brewed coffee with hints of tobacco and tar. Finishes with some light hop bitterness.

M: This beer is way too light for the style. Very watery.

D: This is a decent stout, but too light. I love to support local brewers, but I think they missed the mark with this one. Enjoyable, but nothing really noteworthy that will make me want to keep buying it. That said, I look forward to trying other offerings from Cavalry. (673 characters)

Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a Cavalry Brewing Co. pint glass:

A: Jet black body with cola-like highlighted edges and a very thin head of slightly creamy brown foam which had decent retention and left a thin ring of lace.

S: Roasted barley, carob, cocoa, a bit of coal and wood ashes dominate the aroma. A clear, herbal hop resin is noted as well.

T: Bittersweet roasted malt flavor which gives off flavors of bittersweet chocolate, black malts, a little licorice and anise flavoring to add to the roasted barley finish. The 50 IBUs are notable for giving the brew an earthy, herbal, bitter and slightly sticky finish. Lots of malt flavor given the low ABV.

M: Light-medium bodied with a little bit a watery, non-carbonated malt flavor, yet sticky, resinous hop bitterness. A little bit creamy, but not the best balance here.

D: There's no shortage of flavor given the low 4.5% ABV, but not the balance of creaminess, roasted malts and dry bitterness I look for in Irish stouts. Sort of an off-the-mark brew, but worthy of a try. Not exactly what I think of when having a dry Irish stout, but not too far off from it's Americanized brethren (i.e. Shipyard Blue Fin Stout). (1,183 characters)
