A: Served warmer than usual on a really hot day, probably around 50 degrees would be my guess - i.e., slightly colder than cellar temperature. Poured - fairly aggressively - from the 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Body is black with a half-finger tannish head. Leaves a decent amount of lacing stuck to the sides of the glass.
S: Roasty. Hint of charcoal and coffee. Herbal or leafy hops; tobacco.
T: Roasted barley malt, touch of roasted coffee beans and modestly acrid char. A bit of chocolate. Sour cherries on the back end of things. Some sort of hop bitterness finishes it off; I'm thinking more citrus than anything, but it's tough to pinpoint the hoppy bitterness in light of the roasted barley and charcoal-type flavors.
M: Good carbonation levels - not overly active at all, giving this a good modestly creamy feel. Heft is a tad bit thin, but for a Dry Irish Stout, I'm not expecting a full bodied beer at all, so it works.
O: This is really good. Packs a lot of flavor into a relatively light stout. Drinks like a four or five percenter, but packs in nearly seven. Quick buzz is duly noted.
