On tap at an Irish-ish pub, seemed appropriate. I am not one to seek out a dry Irish stout, but I can appreciate a beer on its merits and will do so here.
This beer pours a dark brown color with thin off white head. The aroma was subdued as is typical of the style, but absolutely delicious. The first sip was very mild, the beer was served too cold but it was right next to the Coors light tap so what are you going to do. About halfway down the beer reached a nice temp and opened up nicely. Light bodied, it had a nice roasty flavor with chocolatey notes and just a hint of coffee. It was dry, but not as dry as other Irish stouts I have tried. For the style I felt it was very flavorful, and a very well done example of the style. Well worth a taste if you enjoy the dry Irish stout.
