Murky dark brown color. Roasted aromas and flavors of dark roasted nuts, chocolate bar, and hint of jerky and sausage with a satiny, bright, finely carbonated, dry medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long finish that exhibits notes of pumpernickel raisin toast, sweet lettuces, and latte finish. A lovely, effortlessly drinkable stout that will be great for sessions and food.

Dry stouts are typically dark in color and range from 4-5.5% in alcohol. These brews tend to be rich with a definitive bitter note and a dry finish. The style is closely associated with Ireland, specifically Guinness. It is also widely emulated throughout the world and is particularly popular with US microbrewers and brewpubs, often as a more full-bodied and dryer interpretation of the original style. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Guinness Extra Stout, O’Hara’s Irish Stout and North Coast Old #38 Stout.
