4.5/5  rDev +7.7%

Appearance: Pours black with big fluffy tan head, leaves good lacing

Smell: Coffee up front, but not in your face. Some nice roasted malts in there as well

Taste: Again, coffee is up front but not so intense, just the right amount for a coffee stout. Nice roasted malts too, chocolate, reasonable bitterness

Mouthfeel: Its got that light creamy texture that is the same for all nitro stouts

Overall: Fantastic brew, and a good take on the classic Irish Dry Stout, and a nice twist on the coffee stout that is so overdone at this point. Another hit from Rinn Duin, hopefully this becomes a regular and not just a one off.

4.46/5  rDev +6.7%

Appearance: pours a dark brown almost black color with a soft 1" head that lingers around awhile.

Smell: roasted malt and soft coffee tones are soft but pleasant.

Taste: roasted malt base with a nice amount of coffee flavor. Some softer chocolate tones come through late. Mild bitterness. Flavors are well balanced and bold.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp to start, smoother and a touch dry at the finish. Flavors linger softly on the tongue for a while.

Overall: a superbly flavorful and drinkably Dry Irish Stout. While I have always enjoyed the style, the coffee-centric version was wonderful.
