Dry is an apt description of this stout. There is almost no malt sweetness to this. It is packed with a nice toasted barley flavor and has a noticeable hoppiness to it, which is not often found in stouts. It had a slight head which dissipated quickly. This beer improved noticeably as it warmed, so I would suggest taking it out of the fridge an hour or so before drinking it. This is the second Moylan’s beer I have had, and while not as good as the Hopsickle, it is a winner. 7.5/10.
