2006 Brewers Association Style Guidelines

Major Style:Ale
Sub-Style Name:Classic Irish-Style Dry Stout
Origin:Irish
Description:Dry stouts have an initial malt and light caramel flavor profile with a distinctive dry-roasted bitterness in the finish. Dry stouts achieve a dry-roasted character through the use of roasted barley. The emphasis of coffee-like roasted barley and a moderate degree of roasted malt aromas define much of the character. Some slight acidity may be perceived but is not necessary. Hop aroma and flavor should not be perceived. Dry stouts have medium-light to medium body. Fruity esters are minimal and overshadowed by malt, high hop bitterness, and roasted barley character. Diacetyl (butterscotch) should be very low or not perceived. Head retention and rich character should be part of its visual character.
Alcohol By Weight (by Volume):3.2-4.2% (3.8-5%)
Bitterness:30-40
Colour:40+ (80+ EBC)
Original Gravity:1.038-1.048 (9.5-12 šPlato)
