4.5/5  rDev +9.2%
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.

4.42/5  rDev +7.3%
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.

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.
