The appearance has a black colored body with an off white one fingered foamy head that dies within about a minute leaving a nice sticky foamy lacing. The smell has some roasty light chocolate coming backed up by some malts. The taste is bitter and sweet at separate times with a dry coffee-ish aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sits about a medium, and is somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is good for the style and for me as its not too harsh but not too soft, just right. Overall, I say this is a pretty good Irish dry stout well worthy of coming back to.

Near black with large and lasting creamy tannish white head. Roasty, slightly sour aroma. Light tasting for the style -- though still fairly heavy bodied and creamy in comparison to most beers. Coffee and roasted malts stand out in the taste. Not bad.

Appearance: very dark
Aroma: light toast notes but not a love of aroma.
Flavor: full body, very toasty with good malt balance. Hints of coffee notes.
Overall: pretty good would like a bit less roast.

Nice smokey aroma. Pleasant and smooth flavor. Seems to be rather singular on the finish that ends rather quickly.

I usually think Irish Dry Stouts are a little underwhelming, but I guess that's just what Guinness conditioned me to think. This Chuli Stout is full of flavor. It's a good looking beer, with a mild aroma and a strong mouthful of roasty flavors. I don't get much sweetness, nor the chocolate that some others find. Lots of roasted malts, creamy mouthfeel. Very good stuff.
