Split a six pack of this with a friend, Im interested to try a dry irish stout *besides* the ubiquitous Guinness. When allowed to warm up a bit and poured into a pint glass the body appears to be solid black, but when held to light its translucence is revealed and a ruby-red shows through. The head is tan, and ample, it retains like a champ and leaves thick sheets of lace down the pint. The nose is rather estery, I can pick up fruit aromas similar to dark berries before the pint even approaches my face. As my nose approaches I pick up powdery cocoa aromas and dark, roasty coffee. This is quite a flavorful dry-stout, the flavors of milk-chocolate and bitter chocolate toy back and forth with each other, faint berry flavors and dark roasted coffee stand firmly together before a bitter earthy hop kick in the finish. Nice and roasty with a medium bitterness throughout. This beer is nice and smooth and gets more so at cellar temp, holy damn what a great session stout. I would recommend anyone try it, and I will not hesitate to grab some more the next time I see it.

A - Amber-dark appearance with a thick cream head. A bit on the light side for a stout.
S - Healthy, coffee scents with a bit of metallic edge.
T - Relatively empty taste for a full stout. Relatively bitter compared to what is to be expected of a quality stout.
M - Good, hearty taste but a bit on the bitter side (~45-50 IBUs) for a stout.
O - A notable stout. Definitely recommendable. Not, however, what could be had with similar brews.
