Very mild, and not as dry as your typical Irish stout. Not very assertive, and makes Guinness look robust. Not bad, but my preference is for a little more personality in the stout.

On tap at the restaurant. It is dark brown, almost black with some red tints, a creamy white head and nice lacing. Good retention as well. The smell is of roated malts, hints of coffee and cocoa. The taste is roasty up front with a semi-sweet cocoa in the middle, then finishes dry with hints of coffee and earthy tones. Nice and creamy body makes it go down easy. A simple, sessionable, but watery beer. Easy to drink. Not bad.

I had this on-cask at Blackstone.

It pours a great, pure black with nice 1.5 inch creamy tan head.

The aroma is very docile and comes of more sweet and chocolatey than dry and roasty. Light.

This has a nice roasted flavor up front followed by a sweet middle; and just when I think this beer is going to finish fairly sweet, it comes through with a nice dry coffee finish. This beer has a big lingering roasted malt and earthy hop bitterness.

This is what a cask stout (or any stout for that matter) should feel like. Smooth and creamy without nitrogen ... Brilliant!!!

This is a nice, light stout that hits all of the typical bases of an Irish Dry Stout. Good.

A very good, probably sessionable, dry Irish stout. Poured a very nice deep brown with some decent head and some nice lacing. Nice roasty aroma. Nice taste, a good roasty stout. Has a nice dry finish and goes down well. An nice example of a well made, no-frills dry stout.
