Brewed by:
Sin City Brewing Co.
Nevada, United States

Style: Irish Dry Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A traditional Irish Dry Stout, it is a full, richly flavored beer with a roasted, coffee-like taste and a hint of chocolate, balanced with an abundant hop profile that delivers a satisfying dry finish. A thick creamy head rests on top and holds the rich roasted aromatic qualities in the glass. This is truly the darker side of sin!

Poured on-tap at bar in the Venetian. The beer is black with a thin, bright, creamy colored head. They refer to it as "The Dark Side of Sin." There is a nose of coffee and earth. The flavors are very smooth, a good creamy blend of coffee, caramel, and nut. There is a very slick, short aftertaste of coffee. The lightness and crispness of the beer is unusual for a stout, but very enjoyable. This was tasty enough to warrant a growler fill on our way home.

Saw this craft brewery walking through the venetian. Bartender says never bottled so here goes a review.

A; definately dark. Can't see a thing through this. Black as sin I guess.

S: nose is weak for my taste. Has some cocoa and malt

T: makes up for weak nose- malt, whopper like, chocolate, coffee tones

M: goes down smooth mild carbonation

D: could have these all night at 6%

Served on tap 05/06/2008. Standard pint glass.

A - Dark tan fades to black, two tip head, mild retention, thick coating of lace.

S - Dry roasted barley and java notes, faint yet pleasant.

D - Nice coffee body with some bitter malt backing. Abv is apparent but seems to make the profile that much bolder, overall I think it balances very well.

M - Medium bodied, mild carbonation level, creamy feel, dry finish.

D - Very good, I was pleased with this one and would have another if the opportunity presented itself.

Served on-tap into a plastic cup from Miracle Mile by ph.

A: Dark brown in color, perhaps a little lighter than expected. The plastic cup probably had something to do with underwhelming appearance. Nice head.

S: Roasted malts, caramel, cocoa.

T: Roasted flavor that was subtle, but very good. Also, small flavor of caramel coming through.

M: Thinner than I think a stout should be. Creamy feel, but again not as much as I expected.

D: This beer went down super easy. Good beer for when you want a little flavor, but don't want to think too much.

Overall, it was a pretty good tasting cup of beer. Much better than what you normally find in plastic. I have a hard time complaining about a stout on tap, and this one while not the best choice, isn't a bad one either.

Poured from tap into a plastic cup, nice dark coffee colored pour with a inch or so of cream colored head. Aroma was of mild roasted malt with some coffee hints, taste was roasted malt with chocolate and coffee swirling around nicely together. Mouthfeel was smooth and slightly frothy in the beginning with a solid medium finish leaving a nice layer of flavor on the tongue. Overall a nice simple Stout that was good from the tap, I really enjoyed this local Las Vegas brew...just a tasty starter Stout.

It is a fine enough stout - works just fine for the Irish Car Bombs it's often used for at one of these bars. Maybe not the best, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
