This is one of my favorite "everyday beers". Flavorful enough to keep me interested all the way through, yet not so intense that it bogs you down after one or two. Excellent.

12oz bottle purchased at Liquor Barn Hamburg
Pours dark, but not too dark with light tan head that finishes off at about 3 inches.
Smell is thin for a stout by average for others of this style.
Taste is empty and thin. Yes - thin is the theme. I know that Irish Dry's are thinner than their American counterparts, but I would like more body. Best flavor is it the aftertaste with light coffee that is reminiscent of a frappe. Overall not a bad beer by any means and stays true to the style, but does not stand out enough to warrant a repeat purchase.
