On-tap as part of a paddle at GRBC.

Should be a porter, not a stout... it's a bit too thin for a stout in my mind, but I can't argue the flavor. Since it's an Irish Dry, I guess I can understand the body. Given its ABV and general mouthfeel, it's a pretty light/easy drink, but it has a solid flavor as well. Nice roasted malts and coffee on the finish with some chocolate -- nothing off here. There's also a slight smoke-like character, but it's really minor. One of the better beers I had at the brewery.
