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 red body with a thin thin ring of white bubbles around the edge of the glass. A bit of fresh apples in the aroma, but also some canned apple juice. Rather sweet, apples of course. A bit dry at the finish. Nice and easy drinking.

12oz bottle. Darker colored cider with apple and molasses on the nose. Balanced flavor leaning towards sweet. Quick finish and pleasant aftertaste. Best over ice or ice cold. Eminently drinkable; something different from regular ciders.

"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

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.
