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.

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.

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.

served on nitro-tap on the porch of the brewpub, served in shaker glass.

appears jet black, with nice 1/2" thick creamy head, as expected from a nitro pour. looks great. aroma is typical for the style, roasty malt smell, not particularly strong. the taste has a bit more flavor than most Irish Dry Stouts, it almost has a spicy aftertaste that I like. Mouthfeel is great, nice and creamy and easy to drink.

Forget the Guinness, seek out a pint of this stuff.
