Dark brown-black body, medium sized tan head, soapy lacing. Dry roasted malt. Not much else. Simple. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation on nitro, a bit astringent in the finish.

Earlier Rating: 3/21/2005 Total Score: 3.3
On tap at the North Wales Location (on the menu as Dry Irish Stout). On Nitro. Poured a dark black (with red at the edges) and an averaged sized tan head. Very nice aromas of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, light coffee and a little smoky. Taste was a major let down (did the nitro kill it). Body a little on the thin side as well.

kramer (5092) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Tap, Newark, as O’Sullivan Stout. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black, body with a creamy brown nitro head. The nose is dry and roasty with some nice coffee and light burnt malt. The flavor is dry and very thin with a fairly up front burnt and acrid quality. Very hard to drink, the burnt ashiness is really strong and there isn’t much roast or coffee here, it’s just burnt. Light bodied and thin with the usual nitro carbonation level. This was far and away the worst beer on tap for my visit.

BiddleBrau (961) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2013
On tap at North Wales. Nice look on nitrogen. Black nice lacing. Faint roasted aroma. Low alcohol at 3.8%. Nice flavor light palate but actually refreshing. I always like more cocoa flavor but this is a good low alc offering. This should be on cask. Owners... take my word on this and let me know when its available on cask.

Draught. I had this at the Brewpub in SJ. Not a Irish dry that I would go for again.

reggiedunlop (3214) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours opaque brown with a medium creamy tan head...good retention and lacing...nitro. Very faint aroma has light roastiness and some nuttiness. Flavor has nuttiness, dry leaves, earthy roastiness, and a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium, slightly creamy, and the finish is roasty/burnt.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 Nitro tap at the Maple Shade location. Dark brown with honey and ruby highlights, creamy lacing tan nitro head. Oooh, beautiful dry roasty nose with a great heaping of chocolate. Watery light body slick and coating with baker’s chocolate. Oh man, I ended up going through this one lightning fast.

About a year later at Voorhees, as O’Sullivan’s. Rating holds, but I wish this one were a bit drier and roastier. Just personal preference.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAY 17, 2011
On tap at Iron Hill Wilmington. Poured a deep dark brown with a thick creamy tan head that hung around and fell to a thin cap. Big roasty malt aromas along with cocoa and some faint coffee. Taste is smootha nd creamy following the aroma with coffee and chocolate coming through in the roasted malt. A nice dry bitter bite shows in the end and lingers for a long finish. Creamy and smooth full bodied.

dmac (4204) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2011
Draft at Maple Shade. Poured with an overly foamy off white head and a dark chocolate flat body. Aroma of dusty grains, chocolate. Flavor has a touch of chocolate, dark grains, wheat bread, Tootsie roll. Thin to medium bodied with soft carbonation from the nitro pour. I like it despite the overly foamy head.
