creamy brown nitrogen head atop a deep brown body. soft cocoa and milk powder nose. high oily char character but the nitrogen body and delicate malt allow it reach creamy-espresso-crema-mode, rather than astringent-harsh-soy-licorice-mode. robust and creamy, drying across the middle and finishing with soft roasted barley, creamy oat and semi-bitter baker’s chocolate. expertly crafted dry stout.

4oz sample at Full Sail Hood River - Nitro - Aroma has lots of roasted dark malts, chocolate and milky. Flavor matches but is lactic. Palate is creamy and thin. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Portland Taproom: Called the "Slaine" stout, but it was on nitro, so I imagine that a dry irish stout on nitro is probably going to be slainte, not slaine. Maybe a word document autocorrect? Who knows. This pours a dark black with a thick tan head and a sheet of brown lacing. The nose is smoky with a sweet chewy roastiness and light acidity. The flavor is thin, but very roasty with plenty of chocolate and black patent. The finish is clean; thin and acidic. Not bad. Very irish.

Hood River, Or - on tap at the brewpub. Dark black pour, nice thick khaki colored head, thick lacing. Aroma has some nice coffee accents, a bit of chicory. Flavor follows the same pattern with a heavy accent on the coffee with some licorice thrown in there for good measure. Nice thick lacticity in the mouthfeel - nice creaminess.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Full sail in Hood River. Colour... black with a thin tan head. Nose... roasted malt and gentle hops. Palate... nicely dry, yet coating, light hops, roasty malt and a delightfully dry finish. Dead ringer for a dry irish stout. Well done!

Dark opaque black color, small off-white head. Roasted coffee and some chocolate in the aroma. Medium-bodied. Soft palate (cask!). Toasted, dark malty flavor with hints of dark chocolate. Nice pleasant stout.
