Nitro tap at the brew pub in New Hope. No cascading by the time it arrived at the bar but otherwise a classic looking stout. Nice fluffy off-white head. The beer is almost black with some ruby highlights.

Aroma is a pleasantly clean with a hint of roast malt.

The taste is not what I expected. The first sip had a faint taste similar to what a sepic tank smells like. I put this down to being a mix of flavors from my previous beer, the Bengal Gold IPA. Subsequent sips where better but still has an unusual but not pleasant taste. It's much like the smell of a dank basement where there is no fresh air and spiders are everywhere.

Perhaps the lines needed cleaning but I would likely not try this one again.

My wife and I went to Irish fest on Sunday. I got a pint of this little beauty. Not a complete opague black as there is a few translucent highlight's. Very creamy coffee colored heading that left rings all the way down the glass.

Smell has a bit of everything for a stout. A bit of cocoa,coffee, some yeasty notes and very very toasty.Also a slight bittering hop aroma to binds thing's together.

Taste is very good. Mainly toasted maltiness with a quick filler of coffee on the palate. A nice yeastiness finishes thing's off.

Mouth is smooth a little watery but amazing velvety texture. A little cocoa lingering in the mouth afterwards. Great carbonation for a stout.

A great beverage indeed. I hold this up with some of the other PA sessionable stouts. Donnybrook, O'reilly,etc.

I was able to get this on 2/9/2008 at the New Hope Triumph.They served it to me in a curved pint glass. Their draft list said that this beer had 5.5% ABV. The beer was was dark chocolate black with a few cranberry red highlights along the edges. The head of foam was nothing short of exceptional. It had a 1 1/2 inch creamy head of tan colored foam that looked good enough to eat. This head of foam never dissiapted or even receded pass 1 inch during this beer's life in my glass. It was just amazing to see! The beer's aroma was faint and dark with dark roasted malts, a splash of caramel and chocolate, and then ended with a pinch of dry roasted hops. This Irish Dry Stout had a nice level of dryness to it and contained dry roasted malts, dried roasted bitter hops, and the slightest touch of caramel and chocolate. Bascially, it was just like the aroma. The mouthfeel wasn't too dry and had an aftertaste of dry roasted malts and dry roasted bitter hops. Overall, this was just a nice and simple not too dry light Irish Dry Stout. I could see myself returing to Triumph to drink this one again.

Triumph has produced a pretty decent dry Irish stout with the prerequisite black body and a dark tan head. The nose is limited but it has a dull note of cocoa and a subtle yeasty fruitiness. The flavor is toasted and a bit nutty. It finishes dry with notes of bittersweet chocolate and a flourish of espresso-like roastiness. More interesting than the Guinness that you can get just about anywhere!
