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.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with a nice half finger light brown head with great retention and nice lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, cocoa and milk chocolate, hint of vanilla. Flavor follows aroma with toasted malt with light char, cocoa, hints of vanilla and dark chocolate. Medium bodied with nice light creaminess. A very well made and to-style dry stout with great malt flavor with lighter chocolate and vanilla notes. Fairly dry, but but enough mild sweetness to bring out the flavors. Well done.

Got this from Adam in AK with a couple of his home brews. Thanks!!

It's black, the pour brought a 1 finger head of tan foam that lasts and lasts and when I check my glass after sipping, the lacing is good.

The smell is very roasty with notes of dark chocolate and that certain aroma that tells you that this is an Irish Dry Stout.

Very dry tasting indeed. Loads of roasted malt and some chocolate with a rather stinging bitterness that enforces the dry. It drinks a wee bit stronger than the 5.9% to me but no matter. This is bloody excellent!
