mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2008
Pours a pitch black with a short lived but finger-thick loose brown head - I was expecting a paler Guinness-style thick head... interesting. Head reduces to thin cover of foam on the top with some lacing. Aroma is very faint - thin toasted malt & light molasses. Tastes of very light coffee with plenty of cream, light chocolate, buttery and lightly toasty. Very faint bittering hops. Light carbonation, thin body, but quite pleasantly creamy mouthfeel. I do like the chocolaty taste here, and the thinness doesn’t bother me so much as I am expecting a sturdy but sessionable dry stout and Moylans delivers. Very nice!

Pours opaque black with a thick and lacy tan head. Chocolate Medium body and moderate carbonation. Fills the room with chocolate, coffee and molasses. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Sweet taste of dark chocolate, nuts, coffee, maybe a little licorice. Semi-dry finish. This is a dandy little stout. Not dry, but dandy none the less.

<b>In short: </b>Big body, wide flavour spectrum and good hopping, an exemplary session stout.
<b>How: </b>Bottle 22oz, tasting session with Montreal crew
<b>The look: </b>Black body with a small tan head
<b>In long: </b>Strong and pleasant roasted nose. Taste has pretty much all one can hope from a stout, roastiness, coffee beans, chocolate and a sweet fruity flavour that reminded me of date or date cookies. So far so good and the finish doesn’t let down either ending with a tasty medium bitterness blending in very well with the roastiness. A very big body for a 5% beer. This is clearly on of the best session stout I’ve had. I really liked that Dry Irish, much better than the last one, a drunk Dubliner who wouldn’t give me the time of day.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle pours black with a decent off white head and some minor lace cling. The aroma is of roasted malt. The flavor is malt, roasted, some minor weak coffee, and peat. The palate is pretty smooth and medium. Overall, this is OK.

This wasn’t my favorite dry irish stout. I consider Three Floyds Black Sun Stout as the best offering that I’ve had in this category. I would’ve liked a little more richness, with maybe some coffee or oak notes to the flavor profile. It was alittle empty for me.

<i>Bottle (22oz) shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of HogTownHarry.</i> Pours a very deep ruby-brown with an average size semi-lasting beige head. Aroma’s dry and roasty along with some coffee and peat. Flavour of roasted malt, coffee, light hops and a hint of peat. Dry finish. Medium to full bodied. A very good stout!

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2008
On tap at Green Dragon, this wonderfully rich and dry medium bodied brew poured a hardy brown-black body with a thick beige-tan head. On nitro, it is fluffy, with hints of biscuit and chewy grains. A wonderful NW interpretation of a classic style. Yum!

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Dark brown nearly black pour with a decent sized dark brown head. Has a smoky and peppery coffee aroma and has a dense taste that is mainly coffee but also some pepper and is layered with a very dry finish at the end. A surprsingly smooth and tasty brew that I enjoyed more than I thought I would.

Another bottle from Canal’s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Very deep and opaque brown pour under a small but dense dark brown head. Initial aroma of dark roasted coffee followed by chocolate and a little smoke. More deeply roasted coffee and semisweet chocolate in the flavor with just a touch of dark fruit tapping at the sides of the tongue. Creamy texture and a long, smooth finish. A really nice beer. Thanks to Moylan’s (or the local distributor) for making more of their brews available out here.
