O’Hanlon’s The Original Ruby Stout

$3.99 for the 1 Pint, 0.9 fl oz Brown Bottle. Arbor Beverage Depot, Douglasville, GA, USA.

Presented in a Brown Bottle with a best before date of 07/21/04. Poured a deep reddish/brown color with a very light, frothy head that was persistant. The head had a cream color. The carbonation seemed to be excessive at first but didn’t drink that way. No excessive gas, a good “chewable” head.

This brew is an excellent example of a light, dry stout. The lack of heaviness led to me giving it a 5 on the drinkability score. I really liked this mainly becuse it gave a nice light “hoppiness” and a light bitterness on the aftertaste that can sometimes be overwhelming in other stouts.

The addition of the the Ruby Port had a distinct affect on the color but not on the taste.
