Poured into nonic pint Microbubbles. Cola body. Head like a chocolate malt, retention throughout.

Smooth creamy nose (smoky as it warms). Taste is a light roast with chocolate. Light Bitterness.

Very smooth. Would feel slightly watery if not for the bitter back. Finish is surprisingly dry (I mean, it IS a dry stout), but not overbearing.

A great, dare I say, session stout. Lovely presentation, very refreshing. A good light dark beer.

Anyone from Dublin would likely say that Guinness is the greatest (and maybe it is). But venture further and try one of these for a slightly different but similarly exceptional Dry Irish Stout.

More flavour than Guinness, less watery taste.

Liquid is very dark and you can taste the torrified malt on it. Very smooth taste, you don't feel the alcohol at all.

Good session stout, otherwise not worth it. Better than Guinness though.
