COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Savor this refreshing glass of complexity. Dark & Dry's assertive tartness is pleasingly balanced by a hint of molasses and brown sugar. More rounded and intricate than its sister ciders, this potion will appeal to beer aficionados, wine devotees, and cider enthusiasts alike. Available year 'round in 22-oz bottles and Sankey draft 5% alc/vol

"Dark and dry it is. This amber cider feels and tasted heavier, with an extra mustiness than runs counter to the dry finish and makes this a pretty interesting cider. "

Looks and tastes like a rum and coke, with a slight apple flavor: dark, fizzy, harsh alcohol taste, plus some oxidization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

944play (359) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft at Local Beer Eureka. Diamond bright deep amber with big ecru head (on a cider!) that dissipates gradually. Smells just like freshly cut ripe red delicious. Flavor is sweet and simple like canned pie filling, plus a hint of caramel or molasses. A mite spitty in the palate, and not particularly dry, and lacking a touch for an acid backbone, but on balance pleasant nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours dark copper with fizzy head. Aroma is apple, light cereal malt, faint citrus, and faint floral notes. Flavor is malty with some apple and pear notes, light floral notes, and faint syrup. Light body and carbonation.

snoworsummer (2455) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Tastes like sweet apple candy with dry apple cider, champagne. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet apple pie, lightly tary and musky.

poisoneddwarf (1767) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2014
12 oz bottle. Aroma is overripe apples, clove. Pours cloudy amber with quite a few floaties under a long-sustaining beige big-bubbly head. Taste starts out sweet before becoming tart and acidic. Foamy mouthfeel. Not too impressed with this one.

I donít really care for ciders, but this one is fantastic. Dark and sugary without being cloying. I can drink this again for sure.

Dark (artificial color), dry. More flavor than most ciders. Becomes increasingly sour as you progress.

michaelinwa (612) - Bothell, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle. Dark, pretty average on all counts. Didnít spend much time on this because it has, among other things, carmel color. Why? Meh.

Bottle share by Bob, smells like apples and cinnamon. Taste is similar, bit of an apple pie filling taste, excellent cider. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
