Name – Dark Starr Stout
Country – United States
Type – Irish Dry Stout
Appearance – Pours pitch black with a good sized tan head that left some lacing on the glass.

Taste – Roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate and a bit of hops. Quite light in body.
I was told about this one when Starr Hill first started getting distributed down here but for whatever reason the store by me didn’t carry this one. It is finally in stock so I picked up a couple singles. I would say it’s a fairly average stout. The body was very light on it and that kind of disappointed me. I would have liked for it to be a little heavier but oh well. I think it would be a good gateway stout and is pretty comparable to Guinness.
Overall Grade – C-
