I had this beer at Societe on a recent trip to San Diego. The ABV was listed as 5.2% on the board. The beer was very dark brown to black in color with a thin white-ish head. Aroma was loaded with roasted malt and chocolate. Black patent malt and roasted flavors from beginning to end with a nice dry finish. I also drank Guinness at the brewery when I was in Dublin and would say The Pugulist is a better example of an irish dry stout.

Black throughout. Thin, light brown head. Standard. Pretty.

Roasted malt and a bit of coffee in the aroma. Not very expressive, but expected for the style.

Earthy and roasted malt, just a bit of coffee and sweetness, and a little chocolate. Very dry. Moderate bitterness.

Thinner in body with moderate carbonation.

Good example of a fairly boring style.

Pours a dark brown, from draft. Expected more from this beer. Roasted aroma with hints of cocoa. Taste and mouthfeel are empty to me. Sharp bite and then it's gone. Not for me, but I'm sure someone who wants to get into stouts and doesn't want the full heavy body at first would love this

Raul could sip on this thang. Irish dry stout like good - not like the lil floozy that I met in Dublin "good," but hey, when in Europe...

Pretty good. I don't think that this style could be heavenly, but it's aite like organic Cheddar Bunnies. (Read the labels, my children.)
