거품의 질은 훌륭하며 바디는 중하급정도로 빠져있기 때문에 스타우트라기보다는 다크라거에 가까운 느낌. 맥아의 탄 향은 크게 느껴지지는 않는 편.
Aroma: Coffee-like roasted barley and roasted malt aromas are prominent; may have slight chocolate, cocoa and/or grainy secondary notes. Esters medium-low to none.
Appearance: Jet black to deep brown with garnet highlights in color. A thick, creamy, long-lasting, tan- to brown-colored head is characteristic.
Flavor: Moderate roasted, grainy sharpness, optionally with light to moderate acidic/sourness, and medium to high hop bitterness. Dry, coffee-like finish from roasted grains.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light to medium-full body, with a creamy character. Low to moderate carbonation.
Overall Impression: A very dark, roasty, bitter, creamy ale.
History: The style evolved from attempts to capitalize on the success of London porters, but originally reflected a fuller, creamier, more "stout" body and strength. When a brewery offered a stout and a porter, the stout was always the stronger beer (it was originally called a "Stout Porter").
Comments: This is the draught version of what is otherwise known as Irish stout or Irish dry stout.
