Style: Irish Dry Stout
Style Information
The Irish Dry Stout is most famously associated with Guinness. The color is very dark to almost black. Additionally, the visual impact of the beer is enhanced by the retention of a thick and rich foam head. The aroma should have somewhat muted, but still notable, tones of roasted grains, with rye or barley being particularly notable. There can also be a slightly less notable coffee aroma. Hop notes should not be present. The taste should follow the aroma, with roasted grains (rye) notable, as well as a slight coffee-like bitterness. Hop flavors should not be notable. The feel should medium in body, possibly somewhat thin compared to other stouts. ABV should be between 3.8% to 5%. IBUs should be somewhat low at 30 to 40.
