Dark walnut color. Roasted aromas and flavors of roasted grains, brownie crust, and hint of dried fruit with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dry medium body and a tingling, intricate, medium-long finish with notes of toasted dark nut bread, chocolate espresso bean, and peppered greens finish. A spot-on stout that refreshes and satisfies.

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.
