Dark brown body with a thick, foamy, light tan head. Good roasted grain smell. Light milk chocolate flavor with a wee bit of hop bitterness. Light bodied with dry finish.

A drinkable yet rather forgettable dry stout. It has dark grained flavors going for it but nothing that really makes it stand out. The body seems rather weak and could use more body. Definitely fits the style profile but doesn't really offer anything unique yet still very drinkable.

I recently tried Killians Irish Red, Was not overly impressed, However I tried Killians Irish Stout the same afternoon, and I was seriously impressed. To me it had hints of a slightly smoky coffee taste, but that only added to the overal flavor. It was very distinct and flavorful, every sip from start to finish maintains a good body with no nasty aftertaste. It was good overall, I have no complaints.

Pours dark brown with one-finger tan head that quickly diminishes to mild persistent lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, mostly coffee with a bit of chocolate. Taste is slightly sweet malt, some coffee bitterness. There's a hint of a metallic aftertaste, similar to what you can get with an oxidized stout/porter. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a stout. Overall this is a decent stout but a little too sweet and too thin to be a great dry stout.
