Iron Hill May ’10 pt3. "Irish Dry Stout" on Nitro

The Irish Dry Stout, is the brew that will conclude my Spring 2010 Iron Hill Brewery series, I was excited to try this one on tap. The Irish Dry Stout on Nitro. This brew put on a most impressive show with its cascading to form a perfectly creamy khaki colored head. Its body was a very dark amber, almost brown in appearance. The aroma reminded me for a second of a Guinness with notes of chocolate and roasted coffee, but the smells were more fresh and intense. It had a smooth creamy medium mouthfeel with light carbonation. The taste was of chocolate, carmel and coffee, followed by a bitter hops nip in the finish. Head retention was perfect and provided for excellent lacing. It is a very well balanced stout, and I was sad when I had finished it but at 3.8% ABV one could have a couple with or for dessert! This is a wonderfully balanced take on an Irish Dry Stout! Once again, If you find yourself in the NJ, PA, DE area do yourself a favor and grab some good grub and great brews at an Iron Hill Brewery.
