Serving type: bottle into a Stella Artois glass

Pours a straight black but has red hues when held up to the light. Has a nice tan head that quickly dissipates but the remnants cling to the side of the glass. Aromas are definitely dominated by the roastiness. Has some caramel notes as well with a slight toast too. Really nice aroma. Better than most beers.

Roast definitely dominates the flavors as well. The caramel comes through more so in the flavor. This flavor is interesting cuz it comes through as butter but i think it's more so the caramel. The body is awesome. Not too much carbonation which makes for a creamier mouthfeel. It certainly makes for a more drinkable beer but the roast does take it down from being perfectly drinkable.

Overall this is a really nice beer. Definitely the best beer that Atlantic/Bar Harbor Brewing makes. When your looking for a really good Stout this a solid bet.

4/29/23 very well done. Roasted malt, coffee forward, smooth. Head dissipates quickly. Would like to do a head to head vs Guinness.

Came upon this when ordering from Craft Beer Cellar. I love complex coffee-forward beers so this sounded like a good choice. I had to drink from the can so I won’t be able to comment on the color, head or lacing.
Even from the can I can smell a roast coffee, dark cherry and cocoa.
The taste is much complex than what I got from the smell. A combination of dark chocolate and roast coffee, toast, leather and a bit of ash as it wamrs.
Mouthfeel is of a medium body with moderate carbonation that is extremely smooth.
I will definitely be ordering this again. Listed as a Irish Dry Stout I can see why it’s rated

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
