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.

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.)
