Aroma is rich dark malts, chocolate, espresso, fig and caramel. Taste is rich caramel malts with a creamy mouthfeel. Finishes with a slight dry body and lightly bitter finish. The water used adds nice mineral flavors that complements the grains very well. Appearance is a black body with a pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
December 16th, 2012 - By the very name if it, Moylan’s Brewery was designed to brew a Dry Irish Stout, just by the name of the brewery. And to all appearances, they’ve done a wonderful job making something that trumps the classic Guinness. In visual style it is much the same, with a deep, dark brown all the way through, and a thick cap of foam on the top (though not so velvety as Guinness, it is close.) The smell is like the inside of a granary, with toasted oats and barley, like a thick and slightly burnt oatmeal, dusted with chocolate shavings and cocoa powder - addicting and satisfying. A sudsy palate delivers a beer that goes down smooth and easy (again, like Guinness), light and even ethereal. Toasted oats dominates the flavor here too, with a nice assertive maltiness that generates sweetness all the way through. This comes across as a step above Guinness at every step, with more substance, a stronger flavor, and probably more calories too.

This rich black beer has a strong chocolate and coffee aroma. It is very much not what you expect when you taste it. Very light almost sweet flavor. It has a really unique taste. I have not really had anything like it.
