Draft sample at brewpub. Poured black color with an average light brown fizzy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good roasted coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Modertate to heavy roasted sweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of average to long duration. Another good drinkable beer.

Draft @ The Livery. Pours a slightly oily, dark chocolate brown color; dark brown head with excellent retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Lots of chocolate, nougat, and cocoa in the aroma; plenty of chocolate. Medium mouthfeel: excellent dry stout presence: loads of chocolate, milk chocolate, cocoa, and chewy tootsie rolls; excellent, dense chocolate character; very drinkable, with a touch of oiliness. Medium finish: cocoa, chocolate, and a touch of bread and toffee.

Cornfield (5460) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2007
This is a pretty decent Dry Stout, even to one who’s not crazy about the style. It turns black in the glass and is capped by a creamy light brown head. The aroma is strong with roasted coffee, barley and malt, yet retains an underlying sweetness. Drinking is like supping a cold cup of coffee lightly spiked with alcohol. It finishes on a dry, mildly bitter note.

Anniversary Trip 2007

5/17/2007: Livery Dixie O’Flynn’s Irish Stout pours an opaque, turly black color with a creamy brown head. It is dry and very roasty, nearly burnt. Flavors contains lots of darkly roasted malts including roasted barley, black patent, and chocolate. Chocolate undertones throughout. There is a hint of burntness in the back of the throat. Very dry finish. A bit watery mid-palate. Medium to medium-full body with a smooth and mild texture.

Draught sample (4.25% ABV) at The Livery in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 24, 2006
nitro tap at brewpub-black with a nitro tan head-smooth and silky. chocolate, light char on thoe nose with a touch of dusty esters. dark chocoolate flavors mostly. light body hinders what would be a world-class dry stout. As it warms, char, light roast and more dark chocolate come out. some copper-penny flavor comes through. pretty good dry stout.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2006
On tap at the Livery on 4/28/04 called Dixie O’Flynn Irish Stout: Pours an opaque black with a dense, frothy, dark tan nitro head. Mild, subdued, dark caramel and roasty malt aroma. Body starts light and smooth, with some earthy malty sweetness turning more bittersweet toward a drier finish. An ok dry stout.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Draft @ The Livery: I am guessing this is the same as the beer I had named Dixie O’ Flynn. Black with a tan head. Aroma of spent coffee grinds with some ash and notes of chocolate. The flavor was very roasty. Some more coffee and ash followed through form the aroma. Light carbonation with a flat smooth mouthfeel.
