Gritty McDuff's Black Fly Stout is a very enjoyable version of an Irish Dry Stout. I must confess, that initially, I was not enthralled from my first exposure. However, this is worthy of giving a go. As subsequent samplings (perhaps unintentional aging is a factor here). It pours a nice dark color with a monster sized head. The smell is malty. The taste is a very nice balance of sweet malt and slight burnt coffee bittering. It has a nice dry mouthfeel indeed. A nicely drinkable stout.

Served on tap in a pint glass
A: Jet black with a khaki head the grows legs and clings to the glass.
S: Very mild. Hints of chocolate and roasted malts.
T: Chocolate, roasted and dark malt, glimpse of coffee. Underlying hop bitterness that finishes dry.
M: Silky mouthfeel; a tad more than medium-bodied.
O: Hands down the best beer Gritty's offers. I would drink it again.

T - Smooth roasted chocolates, decent bitterness, coffee in the back.
M - Velvety smooth and creamy, not overly thick.
