Outstanding smoothness and complexity make this a standout Irish style dry stout. Dark with a creamy tan head. Full-bodied and flavorful with out being cloying or heavy. Roasty and just a touch bitter to finish.

Yeast: Nottingham
Hops: Pilgrim, East Kent Golding
Malts: Pale, Crystal, Chocolate, Black Patent, Roasted

I haven’t had this beers for years.
Great to revisit.
Dark chocolate brown color with a 4F head in a Stone Imperial pint glass.

Heavy roasted malt aroma/taste with a little chocolate as the beer warms up.

Smooth finish. Will revisit.

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.
