Style: Irish Dry Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is a very smooth and creamy, yet dry, roasty stout. it has the delicate aroma of fresh chocolate and roasted barley. The flavor is well balanced with the subtle fruity characteristics of an Irish Ale yeast fermentation and rich layers of chocolate, coffee, and dry roasted malts.

Poured from a growler (awesome logo for a fly fisherman) into a paper cup at deer camp. Not ideal, but I had to try this one.

A: Dark roasty brownish black in appearance with fairly decent head.

S: Mild hints of coffee and chocolate.

T: Fairly well balanced stout with a slight coffee aftertaste.

M: A little light for my tastes.

O: A very serviceable stout. I'm going to have to make my way to RBC and sample some more of their offerings.
