Mahogany color. Aromas of fresh baguette and tiramisu with a velvety, crisp, spritzy, dryish medium-to-full body and a seamless, charming, medium-long salted butter, crispy bread bowl, roasted potato skins, and balsamic reduction on Triscuit finish. A satisfying, chewy stout with a salty edge.

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.
