On tap at Societe Brewing Co., in San Diego, CA.

A- Medium-dark brown body, one finger offwhite head with fair retention time; drops into a medium collar with nice rings of lacing.

S- Not much of an aroma; a bit of roasted malt and chocolate. Mild earthiness. Disappointingly boring even for an Irish Dry.

F- Mild nuttiness, roast malt, a bit of coffee and chocolate. Even for the style, this isn't particularly flavourful or complex.

M- Thinner bodied, but expected for the style. Good carbonation, not flat. Smooth. Good drinkability, but lacks depth.

O- Pretty boring dry stout; not a lot of flavour or complexity or depth to this beer. To be honest, I may even bet that Guinness has a bit more drinkability and more flavour than this. This is one I would have to try again, but won't be rushing back to do so.

Final score: 3.35

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
