Stout com aroma um pouco mais forte que o padrão. Espuma densa e de longa duração. Fácil de beber. É uma boa cerveja, mas não notei nada de mais.

HuskerTan (1161) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle. A- Mocha, bitter cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, dark fruits, wood, roasty. A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head. T- Dry cocoa, bitter coffee, dark fruits, roasty. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly dry finish. O- I love stouts, although I haven’t been impressed with dry stouts until now. Started out with loads of coffee and roastiness on the nose and some dark fruits, even a bit of banana, which I’m not sure where that came from. The taste started out rich and coffee and cocoa like and faded into a very dry mouthfeel with some dark fruit after tones. Solid and enjoyed the depth of this one.

I can drink the hell out of some Old No. 38 Stout. Admittedly, my only experience with the Dry Stout style has been with Guinness and Murphys, but I’d take this American brew over them. Old No. 38 isn’t quite pitch black with a pretty but short-lasting head. Aroma has roasted malt character and some cream. Flavor reveals toasted barley, coffee, rich malt, slight cream, and a little cocoa. Old No. 38 may not be as full-bodied as some Stouts, but man is she smooth. This is a dark brew that won’t fill you up too much or dull your senses a lot with a couple. If that’s your thing, I highly recommend it.
