4.5/5  rDev n/a
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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. (624 characters)

Picked up a single today, pours dark with a light mocha head, no lacing. Smells like coffee beans. Taste is a nice lighter body with a really good coffee punch, the roasted and flaked barley play great with the coffee. One of the better dry Irish stouts I've tried and I'm very glad this was brewed right up the parkway here in NJ. (331 characters)

From the 12 fl.,oz. bottle acquired in trade by a non-BA member. Sampled on June 28, 2015.

Medium amber pour under a modest head.

The aroma is alive with spent coffee grinds. Some malt sweetness.

Medium body - maybe a tad less.

The taste is also like drinking spent coffee grinds in water with that added toasted malt character. Mild bitterness. Good beer. (364 characters)

A: dark black. 1 finger tan head

S: coffee, roasted malts, hint of lactose

T: coffee upfront. Not too bitter but a nice coffee bean taste. Roasted malts, a hint of sweet malts, and a little creamy sweetness

M: lighter side of medium, carbonation is a little higher than a normal dry stout

O: it's a nice twist on the style. I really enjoy the coffee flavor on top of the dry stout. Try this for sure (404 characters)

Watery for a stout but has some nice coffee flavor. Like a beer-coolata (71 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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. (614 characters)

On tap at the scene of the crime in a tepid pint glass.

A- Not so pretty dark brown color, reddish lites, 1f finger mocha tan color head. Lacing starts out fat and heavy but by the time I'd finished dinking the serving, the inside of the glass was clean.

S- Fresh brewed morning coffee with roasted and toasted malts. Very fresh and bright.

T- Fresh roast coffee over dark roast malts.

M- Medium body at best. Well carbonated, though. It's a 5.1% abv stout, and it holds its own. Bitter dry finish.

O- It puts the "dry" in dry Irish stout. Nice beer. (555 characters)
