This is my Irish Dry Stout nitro-can of choice. I picked it up because I had a craving for some black & tans with Gumballhead, and they turned out excellent, but since I had one left I figured I'd give it a proper review.

The beer pops open with a hiss similar to steaming milk on an espresso machine. The nitro widget floats up to the top having released all of its gas. As it is poured, a dark mahogany and hazelnut brown colored liquid forms a creamy cascading tan head. The foam sticks around for the duration of the drink. A little bit of lacing.

The smell is good. The roasted malt comes out a lot better in this beer than in Guinness. A little bit of smoke, with some nuttiness and soy sauce. Of course, it has that distinct creamy nitro aroma as well.

The taste is very similar to the aroma. Still quite dry, but it is one of the sweetest of the Irish Dry Stout nitro cans I've had. I like how the nitro charge doesn't completely cover up the malt flavor. Great taste for a nitro stout, but it still seems no more robust than an American brown ale, just much creamier and maybe a bit more smoky. My beer of choice for making black & tans or Irish car bombs on the rare occasion that I crave one or the other. Very easy to drink in large quantities.

Serving type: nitro-can

Nitro-tap at O'Neill's Bar & Restaurant, Dublin, Ireland

A: The beer is close to being jet black in color – when held up to a bright light, only traces of reddish amber are visible near the edge of the glass. It poured with a finger high creamy tan head that has superior retention properties and hardly died down.
S: Light aromas of roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of dry, roasted malts and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied, creamy, somewhat dry, and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink, especially due to its light-bodied nature.

Tough to find these days. Great, wonderful, spectacular Irish beer. I love it anyway I can get it. Nice change from Guinness and Murphy's just cause, why not? Was my first pint in Ireland at the Shannon airport directly off the red eye flight from Boston. Instant love with this beer. Not as available, really anyway compared to Guinness or Murphy's but that is what you beer snob dweebs are pretty much into, yeah? Go out getcha some Beamish!!! (If you can find it! And let me know where in the US it was found!)
