COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dry stout features a roasty coffee-like bitterness and a clean well balanced palate. A gentle hop bitterness is present. Fantastic with a meal or by itself.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a gentle dark brown close to black color with a thin white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Some light stringy lacing slid into the body. The smell had a dry roasted coffee bean with a super light underscore of chocolate. The taste was dry, light chocolate with a lighter dose of the coffee bean. On the palate, this one came across right at a medium on the body. Sessionable? Maybe... Overall, this was a pretty good Irish Dry Stout worthy of having again.

On draft at the pub. Roasted malts dominate the aroma. The flavor consists of chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, floral/fruity/spicy hop character. This is the best beer they had on draft.

Tap @ Brewpub: Dark brown pour with a modest tan head. The aroma is a blend of roasty malts and dark chocolate. Hints of coffee. Tastes balanced with light smoke, roast, bittersweet chocolate, and espresso. Retains a sneaky amount of sweetness for a dry stout. Nice.

Probably the stand-out beer here - black pour - frothy, lasting tan head - pretty dang sweet for a dry stout - bittersweet aroma with some vanilla cream, chocolate, anise, roast - creamy mouthfeel - a little bitter black malt up front - quite a bit of cream sweetness through the middle and finish - a light bit of roast and anise - lingering, bittersweet finish - a decent stout.

On tap at the brewpub in Rapid City. Dark brown color with small tan head. Coffee and roasted malt on the aroma, also on the flavor, along with some bitterness. Mouthfeel is a little watery, but as much as than you’d expect from a 4-percenter.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Draft. Deep brown when held up to the window. Taste of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. A little balancing hop bitterness adds to the sweetness of the malts. Medium body. A very good session stout, not really dry.

Stine (1628) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Charcoal hued topped with metallic brown. Coffee aromas of steamed vegetables and doughy cinnamon brownies. Bits of mint, spices, and tobacco ash. Flavor is pretty restrained and leans somewhat too heavily on a peppermint and burnt caramel sweetness set over a body of underplayed baker’s chocolate and savory roast. Palate is sharp and somewhat acidic, brightly carbonated and medium in body. Finishes lightly bitter with mineral water. A quiet example, clearly not trying to be too much and succeeding fairly in that modest goal.

Growler. Pours dark brown with a ruby red tint and a tan head. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, some pepper, caramel, hints of spiciness. Tastes of burnt malt, lots of toffee, hints of molasses, lots of sweet malt, sugar, touches of citrus. Mouthfeel is ouly with a finish that is sweet and lasting with a touch of pepper. Very nice!
