Time to knock out another style topper! Here we have the highest rated Irish Dry Stout on BA, and one that has apparently held similar titles for a long time per the notes "Cadillac Mtn. Stout was selected World Champion Dry Stout 1995 and the best hard-to-find beer in America by Men’s Journal." Cool shit. Let's see if it can live up to the expectations I've built up in my head after having this marked as a "want" for 3 years

Pours a muddy medium brown with a finger of tan head that slowly fades to a thin cap and leaves minimal lacing

As expected, the roast is very evident in the nose, but it is nicely balanced as well. I'm picking up on aromas of acidic coffee, dark toast, charred malt, toffee, sweet honey, herbal hops, and cocoa powder

It's also quite smooth in taste for the amount of roasted malt that's present. On the front end of the sip I'm tasting dark chocolate, medium roast coffee, burnt toast, caramel, herbal hops, and dark cherry. The swallow brings notes of acidic coffee, cocoa powder, earthy hops, dark toast, toffee, light raisin, and a touch of char

A medium body pairs with moderate carbonation, resulting in a roasty and slick beer. Finishes mostly dry and surprisingly refreshing

Yeah, this shit is awesome. Super easy drinking even for a style where drinkability is pretty important. Definitely deserving of its ranking. I think I'll have to stock up on more now that I found it

Lovely beer. Drank it at the brewery which was a great place in the woods. Not much head but lovely taste. Quite a coffee vibe going on.

Pours a dark brown color with ruby edges and a finger of beige head. The nose has roasty notes but also something sweet and almost toffee-like. Roasted malt is the feature of the flavor profile. The finish is gently bitter.

I could drink this offering all night. no wonder it's the #1 Irish Dry Stout.

Overall, an excellent iteration of this style. Very roasty with tangible hop bitterness and a reasonable ABV. Prefer this much to Guinness. I’ll have another please.

Now brewed by Atlantic Brewing Company since the owners of Bar Harbor Brewing retired

L -- Murky deep brown body with a two-finger light tan head produced with moderate pour. Some retention and lacing
S -- Milk chocolate, nougat, barley malt, molasses, touch of spice
T -- Nutty coffee, cacao powder, brown sugar, maple sap, well roasted malt, herbal hoppiness. Really nice, smooth, low bitterness finish
F -- Easy drinking and semi-fluffy. Hint of sweetness throughout. Medium- mouthfeel, medium carb. Just a little watery around the edges
O -- One of the best Euro-style stouts I've had, and at a great price. Really easy drinking stuff

12 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is of grassy hops, roasted malt, toast, dark fruit, some coffee. Body is full, creamy and slightly crisp. Taste is of nutty, roasted malt, grassy hops, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar and dried fruit. Finish is long and bitter. Nice stout.

Completely black,just above average carbonation. Great aroma,coffee,chocolate,and malts. Taste was the same,very flavorful,everything a stout should be. A thick heavy mouthfeel with an odd stinging bite that's hard to describe. Overall an excellent stout that I would definitely try again

had out of the bottle and it is truly an interesting stout. it is lighter than most. clean taste with a sweetness in the finish. very clean aftertaste and the mouth feel is also a bit unique. there is a bit of a sting or bite that is actually quite nice. this beer definitely exceeded my expectations.

A brew that is dominated by coffee and chocolate malts...this is a decent stout but there is nothing that separates this from thousands of others that taste exactly the same.

It pours a dark brown and leaves a foamy off white head. Minimal lacing occurs and spider webs apart. The smell is roasty between coffee and chocolate notes. The taste.takes those flavorings to make it sweet. The palate is about a medium to heavy with nothing harsh on the tongue, slightly sof and creamy. Id say its fairly drinkable. Overall, this is a good standard American stout that I would gladly come back to.

Pours a pitch black color with a finger of khaki head. The head has little retention, leaving nothing in the way of lacing before settling into a thin, bubbly halo.

The aroma is all roasted malts with a hint of vanilla cola and black licorice. Odd but pleasant.

The flavor brings notes of roasted pecans and almonds, followed by tootsie rolls and licorice. Finishes with a faint touch of hops. I should hate this but I don't. It's pretty good, actually.

The feel is medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Very creamy and smooth. No alcohol presence.

Overall, a pretty good and very interesting stout. It's a bit too sweet, but never cloying, and it has a nice creamy body, like your mom.
