HISTORY AND STYLE
An Irish-style dry stout is a lower-alcohol black ale that often uses roasted barley and/or a combination of black malts to achieve both its depth of colour and its signature roasted aroma and flavour.
This nearly opaque black ale pours with a beige foam and displays some reddish undertones. The aromas suggest roasted coffee, dark toasted bread and malt. The flavour presents roasted malt, dark roast coffee and dark chocolate. The body is light to medium, and the finish is quite dry with lingering roasted character.
Warm grilled oysters with hollandaise, Carpetbagger steak (striploin steak stuffed with oysters), lamb burger with chèvre, Stilton-style blue cheese, corned beef with dumplings.

Many stouts do not fit the classic "Irish" definition as exemplified by Guinness, either due to their hop or roast rates, or higher gravity (in the case of many American stouts). They are still basic stouts, however, not falling into any of the subclasses.
