Originally brewed for our brewery that once was located at Lake Sonoma Winery. This nitrogenated dry stout is low in alcohol but big in flavor. Its smooth roasted coffee like aromas and flavor are clean and drinkable.

"a pleasant flavor and nice roasted coffee aroma. i think, though, that this beer is not big enough for nitrous...the end product is a tad too watery. other than that, it’s a textbook dry irish

Draft at RRBC. Black, tan nitro head shrinks but never dies. Lovely aromas of ashy dry roast and coffee, some hops. Tastes a tinytouch sweet then dry ash, burnt dark roast, espresso coffee, hop bitterness. Dry finish. Quite thin, light body. Apart from the thin body this is excellent.
