Dark brown black color. Meaty, savory aromas and flavors of dark roasted nuts, pot roast with veggies, coffee and cigarettes, and roasted brussels sprouts with a velvety, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, delightful, medium-length finish with notes of melted dark chocolate and grilled greens and turnip finish. A meaty, lightly vegetal stout for the table.

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.
