Arguably Ireland most famous export, dry stout has a loyal following all over the world. Our kit has a pronounced roasty, coffee-like flavor and aroma, imparted by a generous helping of roasted barley.
Hop bitterness enhances the dryness, and the medium body makes for a very drinkable dark beer. This is one of the most popular styles among home brewers; after a few pints, you'll understand why.

Great kit. If you want a stout, then this is a good one.
A good first time, all grain option. (All stouts are good first time options. :-) )
We added about 1/2 lbs+ of DME to "spice" it up (and use the DME in a useful way). OG=1.061/FG=1.023, which is "high" for a stout, but put the flavor in a nice place. There is a subtle and nice coffee finish to it, which is actually more than I would have liked. The wee bit of sweetness makes your brain think, "Is this a porter?"... which it is, sort of. Also, we were really, really lazy in our fermenting process and the finished product was great.
Kegged it today. We have it under nitrogen/CO2 ("Guinness mix"), which should give a fabulously smooth texture to balance the solid stout maltiness.
After not brewing for several years, due to a move, kid, etc. I decided to fire up my Grainfather and give this a go. I am so happy that I did! The recipe is top notch, easy to get back in the groove, and the taste is amazing!
Good kit smelled great brewing it. Have not tasted it yet
I have had good luck with this beer coming out great both times I've brewed it.
