Irish Dry Stout

A style developed in the early 1800s, the popularity of the Irish Dry Stout rests mostly on the shoulders of its most popular beer - Guinness.

Virtually pitch black in color, the Irish Dry Stout flavors are dominated by the dark roasted and slightly burnt malt flavors. Notes of coffee, and dark chocolate are generally balanced by moderate hop flavors and bitterness, although the malt character is usually a bit more assertive. Also commonly features a dry finish, a relatively smooth mouth feel, and a medium-light body.

Best served cool, at 46-54 degrees, and in a pint glass, tumbler, or beer mug.
