BEER INFO

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!

Dark black with a fluffy tan head. Roasty malt, and chocolate smell. Creamy, yet thin body. Thin flavor of chocolatey roasty malt. Not really much bitterness or any hop presence. Alcohol is very prevalent in this one and it is quite watery. Not very good, but I've had much worse.

Served on nitro-draught into a plastic cup at the Miracle Mile location. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were low. Paired with pretzels. Props for choosing nitro; I wouldn't expect that from a seemingly tourist trap brewery.

A: Pours a half finger head of nice thickness, good cream, and good retention. Colour is a solid black. Appealing.

Sm: Vanilla and cream. A mild strength aroma.

T: Cream, light vanilla, and very light caramel. Simple for a stout, but creamy and pleasant nonetheless. Nitro-draught was a good choice. It's nicely balanced as well.

Mf: Creamy, smooth, and wet. Downright wrong for a dry stout. Where's the dryness? Doesn't suit the beer (or the style).

Dr: Very drinkable, but more like a porter than a stout. Expensive and of limited quality on account of its simplicity.

I had this beer on tap at the Monte Carlo Brewpub in Las Vegas (served in a weizen glass). I found this beer to be quite boring in character.

The beer poured a not-quite-opaque red-black, with a fair amount of light tan head. There was no aroma. It was served rather cold, but exhibited only a faint amount of light roastiness. I found this beer to be disappointingly approachable. Mouthfeel is smooth but a bit flat and watery. Not a very exciting beer.

After sitting and sipping on the Amber and Weiss, I got the Stout to go. This is the one non-German beer on tap at the taproom.

The Irish-type stout begins with a toasty, German Dunkel aroma, more timid than found in the classic Irish stouts. Otherwise clean maltiness prevails with a touch of malty caramel, no real fruitiness or off-notes.

A ligher than average hue allows a lot of amber highlighs underneath a timid head formation and retention. Pretty average appearance.

Flavors show the same timid malt presence as found in the aroma, with a toasty caramelly flavor. Again, no fruitiness, phenolics, or yeasty spices found in taste.

Well attenuated and clean, the beer thereafter suffers from under-malting and light graininess late. Finishes clean and crisp but with a lingering grain flavor and feel.

Not an offensive beer, just a bit lackluster for my taste as a stout. I may have a better take if it were a Dunkel.
