1.5 finger head with tons of circumferential lacing On a deep clear amber body.

S: roasted malt and dark chocolate.

T: roasted malt and very mild hops. Light chocolate note in the finish. Very good beer but not memorable for any one quality. Very drinkable and a good example of what I think an Irish dry stout should be.

M: full body and moderate carbonation. Relatively moist finish

Beautiful black body with a creamy tan head.

Light roasted malt nose. Not a whole lot anything else is evident.

Roasted malt taste, along with typical coffee notes.

Mouthfeel is smooth and light.

Extremely drinkable. If you want a session stout, this is it. With the low ABV it's a light, tasty stout that begs to be consumed in mass quantities.

Poured from a nitro tap into a nonic

A- pours jet black with a two finger light tan head. Sticks around for awhile, great lacing

S- faint aroma of roasted malts, but not much going on here as you'd expect from the style

T- tastes a little bit watery, but I'm getting some roast here.

M- really creamy. A little thick, but good god do I love that creaminess you can only get from this style

D- really drinkable. Not a lot of alcohol at all, and just the right amount of flavor too.

On tap at Milltown in Carrboro.Poured from the nitro tap jet black with a cascading beige head that settled into a creamy froth after awhile.Some dark roast coffee,unsweetened chocolate,and metallic aromas,pretty much spot on for the style.Creamy as suspected from the pour,flavors seem a bit light with dark roast flavors dominating,a tinge of iron in the finish.An easy quaffing nitrogen dispensed dry stout,creamy and good.

On Nitro-Tap at Blind Tiger Ale House

Poured extremely dark with just a light reddish tone near the bottom of the glass also had a good three quarters inch cream colored head. This was a very drinkable smooth stout which had hints of bitter, smoke, and coffee at the finish.

A stout I really enjoyed mainly due to the drinkability.

A: Dark chocolate brown, almost black with a light tan head.

S: Chocolate, cream, and roasted malt smell. Some caramel and coffee as well.

T&M: Very creamy. It tastes dry and roasted just like it should. Dark coffee beans and a subtle touch of sweet caramel. Light to medium bodied but watery, if that is even possible. Creamy, but thin.

Much better than I had expected as I am not a typical stout drinker. This one's good.
