I had this beer on-tap as part of a sampler at the Russian River Brewery.

The beer poured to be black in color. The aroma was of roasted malts with a hint of chocolate.

Dry, creamy, light, and easy to drink. As noted in some previous reviews, this beer reminded me of a traditional Irish Dry Stout and was very different from the other Russian Rivers beers I had had previously.

Good for the style, but certainly not my favorite of the many wonderful beers made by this brewery.

Cheers!

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the RR Brewpub.

A: dak brow-blackn, essentially opaque but clear. Semi-durable head still leaves very good lacing.

Aroma: dark roasted malts withfaint hops.

Flavor: dark roastd malts with more obvious hops than in the aroma.

FeeL; smooth; light body seemed relatively too light for style and even a bit watery; medium-low carbonation.

O: OK

Serving type: on-tap
