3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The appearance has a black colored body with an off white one fingered foamy head that dies within about a minute leaving a nice sticky foamy lacing. The smell has some roasty light chocolate coming backed up by some malts. The taste is bitter and sweet at separate times with a dry coffee-ish aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, it sits about a medium, and is somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is good for the style and for me as its not too harsh but not too soft, just right.
Overall, I say this is a pretty good Irish dry stout well worthy of coming back to.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Talkeetna Roadhouse a few days ago. Black pour with foamy dark brown head that laced beautifully. Aroma was well-rounded coffee with loads of chocolate malt and roasted grains. Flavor and finish fell a touch short, with a good start of coffee but a weak progression into nutty chocolate as the finish felt a bit muddled and overly sweet. Great for the area, but this one is just a tiny bit off. If they can address the finish, this would be one heck of a brew!
