Pint draft consumed in a pub in Kinsale whose name escapes me at the moment. As good a dry stout as I've had, though I will say I have much less experience with stouts than with other beer styles. Quite pleasant and a beer I would definitely drink again.

Been a while since I had a Beamish. Nice head from nitro can into pint glass. A deep blackish red color, pretty.

Chocolate ruby - pale - with a rock solid creamy beige nitro head. 3.75
Roasty sweetness, clotted cream, and sour mulch on the nose. 4
Chocolate chip cookie dough, a mild molasses hit, then vague branchy hop hit. 3.5
Root beer and slightly drying linger.
Thin, soft, slight tin. 3.5

Shows well, if too light, and it’s certainly a sweet, round and tasty drop. It’s just not particularly to style - understrength roasty bite, no hop bitterness, and missing that clean (i.e. the dry in Dry Stout) another-round-please finish. More like a low ABV, “nutritious” British milk or oatmeal stout - very drinkable, but very forgettable, too. 3.5

I also find it hilarious that this rates a full .3 pts higher here than Guinness Draught when this is just as macro, but cheaper. Careful, BAs, your hate is showing...

Nice stout. Wouldn't take it over a Guinness, if you're choosing popular stouts in Ireland, but it's good for a change. A nice burnt, bitter taste to it. The head on the beer is quite nice. Overall, would definitely drink again.
