COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp, dry Irish-style stout is typical of those made in England and Ireland. Ours contains hints of chocolate and coffee as a result of the fermentation process.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Roastiness galore delivers flavor and bitterness atop the faint caramel sweetness of this very flavorful low gravity Dry Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the brown-tinged black.
-The grain bill mostly yields roast and caramel flavors, and perhaps coffee.
-Hops aren’t too apparent.
-Fruity esters hang on to the caramel.
-The body is quite generous for the style and the abv.

On tap at the brewpub.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask at GBBF. Black with a tan head. Reasonably pleasant nutty and creamy nose. Flavour along the same lines but very dusty and some rather sickly berries. Nothing too special but I have a feeling this wasn’t on top form.

Verre de dégustation, provenant d’un fût, au Vermont Brewers Festival 2010 (Burlington, VT). Arôme: Odeur de café avec une pointe chocolatée. Apparence: La couleur est noire opaque.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Cask@GBBF07. Whiskey aroma with laurel and chocolate. Black color, light brown head, fair lace. Very sweet, whiskey, hint of coffee, light roasted. Sticky and sugary. Kind of a love/hate beer. I decided to average that in the rating. Note: somehow I rated this beer twice at the GBBF but ratings were luckily the same.

AirForceHops (4413) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Sample at the Brew Pub. Pitch black with no head. Nose is light roasted malt. Taste is normal for the style. Hints of chocolate, notes of coffee, bitter chocolate finish. Thin body that the style represents. Close to any other Dry stout.

RichardGretton (4407) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2007
Cask@GBBF 2007. Golden beer with quite a syrupy body. The aroma is peachy and quite lightly fruity and dry. The flavour is malty, bitter and vinous. Overall a nice beer.
