On tap at Hops and Pie as part of CBC, very cool to see Societe on tap. Dark black, good head. Smells like mild roasted malts, a bit of cocoa powder. Flavor is cocoa powder, dry, roasted malts, pretty much what you would expect given the style. No complaints here but since its not my favorite style I'm not sure I'd order this again.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

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.

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
