Dark medium brown color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate, roasted nuts, and coffee gelato with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and an effortless, refreshing, medium-length finish with notes of dark almost burnt toast, chocolate phosphate, and almond butter finish. A rock solid stout.

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.
