No fuss no muss - it is everything you'd expect and nothing else. Easy to drink, light toasted malt, a little cream, oat, can be watery but it is a light beer so what do you expect? Perfectly fine for what it aims to be

Love this stout. Especially in the pint cans. Could drink it all day, but have to be in the mood for something heavy.

Looks almost pitch black, save for hints of dark red at the bottom of the glass. Topped by a thick, creamy, nitro-wrought beige head. Retention is flawless, and lacing coats the glass in thick sheets.

The aroma is almost non-existent; stale black coffee, dark chocolate, coffee, burnt toast, slight creaminess.

The flavor is bitter cacao, dark roast black coffee, burnt toast, malted milk balls, and cream. Finishes decidedly dry.

The mouthfeel is very light, smooth and creamy, but light to the point of being watery.

The definitive Irish dry stout. It is what it is.

The classic Irish stout. This is what I drink when I don't want to think about what I'm drinking. Pours a very thick, creamy head. Smells like dark malt. Tastes like malt and a hint of coffee. Easy on the hops. The mouthfeel is near perfect. Better than the classic Extra Stout in my opinion.
