Dark, opaque body with splashy head and lacing, dry roasted malt nose. The open is toast, dry chocolate, coffee in the middle, and a very dry close. Superb stout.

This one comes up short of being black, but it is a very dark brown. You get those cherry coke head feels on this one. Aroma is a dry roast, minor hops. Artwork very cool like most FFF beers.

Pick your standard, the roast, the dryness, the relatively low abv, the super mild toffee and caramel aspect, even a somewhat fruity yeast that doesn't just pound dark fruit all day on your. Seriously, when you're looking for Irish Dry Stout, this is benchmark thus far in terms of beers in style that I've tasted. The format sucks, but if this was in 6 packs I'd buy all day, would always have some on hand.
