COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Bavarian born brewer, that once helped open an English brewery waaaaay back in the 20th century, gets to name an Irish-style beer after himself...doesn’t he? That’s a BIG stretch, but Florian’s not naming the beer after himself, others at UCBC are to blame. Anyways, to help celebrate spring and the day of Ireland’s Patron Saint, UCBC’s patron brewer, "O’Florian", has brewed a traditional Irish Dry Stout ~ a style that quite often surprises people with its easy-drinking demeanor despite its ominous aroma and dark appearance. OG 12.1 Plato (Imperial Nonic)

Pours very dark with a crimson hue and tan head. The aroma has very roasty malt, slight char, bit of chalk, dark cocoa and an overall dryness. Very nice for the style. The body is quite light and crisp and a bit rough with a minor amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with very roasty dry malt, dark cocoa and is pretty much like the aroma, but maybe even a bit drier. The finish is a bit husky and dry (of course) along with a good amount of spicy / earthy hops for bitterness. Well done dry stout.

Draught at Bridge in St Louis. Basically, an Irish Stout. But a bit different as a little bit of Milk Stout is in there. Creamy overall. Nice stout body.

It poured a dark red almost black color with a brown head. The aroma was of malt and coffee. The taste was of roasted malts, with a touch of coffee. A very good Dry Stout.

(draught at tasting room) black with generous light brown head. Aroma of toasted malt and coffee. Flavor was roast malt, some coffee, hint of sweetness, earthy/grassy hops. Would love to have it on a nitro tap. Very full bodied.
