14.9 oz can chilled for 2 hours. Poured into a proper English pint glass. Pours black/dark brown. Thick creamy head. Faint aroma. Good foam retention & lacing. Smooth and creamy taste/mouth feel. Heaps better than Guinness.

Had on tap. Ah beamish, the forgotten Irish dry stout between them, murphys and guinness. Honestly my least favorite of the 3. The smell is dull, with light coffee and malt notes alone. The taste is standard dry stout, with roasted malt leading the subtle dark chocolate, coffee, and bitters. Thinner for style, just forgettable in my book

On tap at the Maldron Hotel in Cork. Pours black/brown with a thick off white head that lasts. Not much aroma to speak of, maybe light coffee. Taste is mild roasted and bitter sweet. Feel is excellent on nitro, very smooth and clean finish. Overall a very nice Irish Stout.

Had on-tap in Ireland. Poured into a pint glass.

L: Jet black pour with a classic Irish nitro stout head. Thick and creamy.

S: Roasted malts... faint espresso.

T/F: Very similar to the other Irish Dry Stouts I've tried... and very close to a Guinness. Smooth and creamy. Great mouthfeel. Taste is milder... roasted malts, some coffee and cocoa notes. Inoffensive but nothing super exciting either.

O: Another dry Irish Stout. Very good fresh and on-tap... and virtually indistinguishable from the other big-boy players in the style. Maybe an ooch sweeter... maybe? Not a bad pint.

L Very dark red with a nice head that remains well.
S Hint of a grainy, biscuityou aroma with a slight chocolate hint.
T grainy rye note and a hint of coffee or chocalate. I rye flavor is what I find interesting compared to Guinness or Murphy'so stout.
F full, smooth mouthfeel. Great.
O a nice Irish Dry Stout with a more prominent rye flavor that separates it from the other leading stouts in Ireland. Very nice.

Comes in dark, but also thin. Brown mostly. 4/5" beige head. Looks pretty. Tad bit of peaty smoke in the aroma with a small amount of roast.

Extremely thin mouthfeel. Creamy and smooth though, still drops some smoke on you. Really doesn't come across all that dry for style. The cost seems high, maybe its the widget stuff, but aside from its nice appearance, this one doesn't do much for me.

MJ's 1999 "Guide" gave it 2.5 of 4 stars and called it "chocolatey and the least dry among Irish stouts in this style.
