Pours two fingers of tan head on a black body. Looks amazing.
The aroma is rich caramel and roasted malt with hints of chocolate and coffee.
The taste is dry overall, a little roasted malt and coffee. And a lot of bitterness coming through.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation.
The taste and texture were a bit of a letdown after the outstanding appearance and smell. Still, an enjoyable stout.

Appearance - Pours a dark cola brown that sits neigh black in the glass, and develops a tan, frothy 2 finger head. Good retention, leaving
Smell - Fair chocolate notes, moderate roastiness and some earthy undertones.
Taste - More roasty in flavor than presented on the nose. Roasted coffee upfront, then touches of mocha and milk chocolate come through mid-taste and toward the finish. A bit of earthy hops and a caramel undertone peek though as the brew warms. Long, lingering and pleasant coffee aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - On the light side of medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth on the swallow, then dry on the finish.
Overall - American River does it again, nailing the Irish dry style with this brew. Really smooth and flavorful. Hits on some fair complexity that is uncommon with the style, but quite welcome. There's no doubt now, American River is easily my favorite local brewery.
