On cask at Moylan’s. Pours black with a finger of beige creamy head. Not much of nose on cask, but do get roasted malts and hints of chocolate and coffee. Tastes of roasted malts, very creamy, medium bodied for a stout with a very dry finish. Overall a good dry stout, has the flavors and mouthfeel I am looking for in a good Dry Irish Stout.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

schenkt zwart ondoorzichtig met minimale bruine kraag. aroma van koffie, chocolade, moutig, zoet, gebrande en geroosterde mouten. Smaken zijn matig tot redelijk zoet, zwak bitter, niet erg sterk, licht fruitig, matig moutig. medium body, dun van textuur, lage co2, afdronk wat zoetig en iets droog. Aardig bier maar over het algemeen te beperkt en te dun.
