COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Authentic rendition of Irish-style Dry Stout poured through a "creamer faucet". Light bodied and low in alcohol content this black ale is nonetheless intensly flavored with a distinct "coffee-like" roasted flavor.

Almost jet-black with a nice tan head. Awesome strong coffee aroma. Big sweet coffee taste thats mellowed out by the sweet chocolate. Just freakin great dry stout at 4.8%. Very low carbonation.

Black wiht a thick, brown head. Chocolate, toasted bread, coffee and slight hints of cardboard. Smooth, creamy body. Very light bitterness in the flavor with the right combination of coffee and toast. Tasty, but not the best dry stout I've ever had. The right flavors were there, but maybe I'm a slut for bigger flavors. The low alcohol doesn't bother me, but everything was just a bit diminished.

Ny biggest complaint about this beer is definetly the low alcohol content. Otherwise, this is a very pleasant stout, much better than Guinness or Murphy's really. Very roasty flavor, nutty and very good dark chocolate present in the flavor/aroma. Smooth and creamy palate. No sour finish like Guinness and some other dry stouts have. Nice!

I have to agree with mittenstein - this is the best dry stout I've ever had. It is a classic. Perfect dark body, though a little lacking in the head department. Roasty nose. Lots of roastiness in the flavor, with some chocolate, but a very slight sweetness. Coffee undertones. Nearly perfect dry finish. Zero bitterness. This was my first sample in this evenings Southampton beer voyage, and it got me off to a great start.
