Poured from a cold bottle into a pint glass...not sure what to expect here...first time trying the Moylan brewing company...
Appearance - Extremely dark after the pour; opaque; black; head was initially about two fingers but dissipated very quickly...did not retain a head throughout...decent lacing on the side of the pint glass.
Smell - Grainy; not remarkable; detect a faint smell of coffee or espresso.
Taste - Coffee, dry, roasty, malted barley.
Mouthfeel - Medium body; not too carbonated; average; nothing too impressive here.
Overall - A decent dry stout; I wouldn't seek this one out again; average at best.

Moylans Dragoons Dry Irish Stout has a thick, creamy tan head and a dark brown, almost black appearance, with lots of bubbles clinging to the sides and a fairly thick lacing sheen left on the glass. The aroma is of bitter coffee, dark malts, acidity, and some burnt properties. Flavor is of dark-roasted, somewhat burnt malt, acidity, black bread, and maybe cocoa powder. There really isn’t much bitterness, here. Mouthfeel is light and prickly, and Moylans Dragoons Dry Irish Stout finishes dry, astringent, sweet, and easy drinking. Overall, this is most excellent, and I recommend it!

22oz bottle, a pleasant reminder of Belmont Station in Portland a few years ago, where I first encountered this brewery's wares. Now available way up here in Alberta.
This beer pours a solid black abyss, with very thin cola perimeter highlights, and two fingers of puffy, tightly foamy, and fairly creamy chocolate milk head, which leaves a low-lying profile of iceberg lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.
It smells of roasted, faintly meaty caramel malt, sweet bar nuts, a hint of bittersweet cocoa, mild day-old coffee and the cream that it demands, with some timid earthy, leafy hops. The taste is semi-sweet, and a tad less toasted, bready caramel malt, creamed nuts (I know), milk chocolate, and lactic coffee - a theme is developing, eh? Yeah, the milkiness really comes through, providing a strong richness, as a bit of diabetes-at-risk earthy hops swirl about the edges.
The carbonation is rather sedate, and near inert, the body a decently solid medium weight, smooth, and strangely possessing only a low-key creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the inherent stout dryness not really a match for the now overbearing milkiness.
A bit too one-dimensional, and not really all that Irish Dry Stout seeming - the variable milkiness, again, is ill-applied. That aside, this is drinkable, as an after dinner dessert accompaniment, or the like.
