This beer has more dryness that comes from larger amounts Roasted Barley and black malts. The sweet malt flavors balanced with dark grain dryness combine with the buttery flavors from the yeast create a very smooth soft flavorful beer. Our Dry Stout is actually a version of an Extra Stout which most people think Guiness is an example.
