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 (9411) - 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.

smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Dark brown color where no light shines through. Very nice head and lace left on the glass. Strong coffee ground aroma--no sweetness. The body is thin. After a mild start, a heavily roasted malt flavor shows up in the swallow--lots of black patent malt. A very dry stout and bitter from the burnt elements.

BroSpud (2061) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 15, 2011
On tap at brewpub. Pours dark brown with a decent head. This is a passable stout and makes for a good session beer due to the low abv though nothing outstanding here.
