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.

Darker than usual cider.small head even. Nice mellow apple aromas, with some toffee acccents. Mellow sweetness, not too artificial, like a Mt Fuji apple taste, again some spice and toffee ..caramel even. Very nice on the palate for a cider, considerably more body than most. Overall an excellent American cider. I enjoyed this

Tap @ The Front Door: A drier cider but with a mellow spice and dry yeast note. Seems like a hybrid caramellized amber ale with cider but with a dry french cider body. Good!

On Tap at The Front Door Boise. Pours out a nice clear amber topped with no head. Aroma of sweet apples and molasses. Tast more of the sweetness and the apples once again. Not to bad.

Tap at Henry’s. Not the best cider I’ve had. In fact, the most disappointing since it promised me dark & dry and only the color was delivered on. Rather sweet, rather lacking on apple and pretty one-dimensional.

Amber with no head. Aroma is a lot of brown sugar, apple, red apples, aroma is like an ice cider. Taste is red apples, light molasses, brown sugar. Not as good as the aroma.

Thanks to Dave at By The Bottle for this cider in a 22-oz. bottle. Poured a dark amber body. No head. Apple and toffee nose with a hint of molasses and brown sugar. Sweet, juicy apples. Great, dry, spicy flavor.

22oz bottle. Dark amber. Slight carbonation maintains a hint of foam around the edges. Good apple scent with a dark depth that may come from the molasses. A bit of a lively mouth feel. Dark sweetness, apples and a warm spice. Like a cold spiced apple pie.

First tried on tap at Hops and Props, and then realized I had a couple of 22oz in the fridge I’d never opened. Clear, dark golden with thin head. Aroma of sweet apples. Taste is a mix of brown sugar sweetness and apple. Smooth, and a bit vinous. I think this is the only cider I’ve ever actually enjoyed. It won’t knock the beer out of my hand very often, but it’s a nice change of pace.
