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

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 (1950) - 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 (1692) - 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.

Beerathon (1112) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2013
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 (583) - 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

Bomber to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a fairly transparent deep copperish brown with light beige lacing and lively carbonation. Smells solid; a nice fresh apple presence with a bit of molasses. Tastes like it smells with a bit of brown sugar too. Solid on the palate. An enjoyable cider.

HeadyDE (483) - Delaware, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle pour..darker than expected even with the dark and dry moniker..dark brownish copper ruby hue..aroma of apples..slight tart..perhaps traces of the molasses and brown sugar..mouthfeel is ok..it is dry..yet doesnít seem to have that high quality fresh pressed apple linger and taste..slight cinnamon as well..

arondee (545) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a hint of red. Aroma is apples, sugar, molasses, and caramel. The taste is sweet and crisp. Brown sugar, caramel, apples. Thereís a lot to like here. Iím really digging this cider. A bit on the sweet side but if you like that sort of thing this cider has a lot going for it.
