What a crazy day at work! It’s only Wednesday and it was pretty much insanity. Usually the general insanity waits for Friday. Needless to say, I’m exhausted. My plan for the rest of the night? Sit my ass on the couch and have a beer. This is one that’s been on the list for awhile to try.
Style: Irish Dry Stout
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This big, roasty stout takes flavor to the extreme. We aren’t afraid to use plenty of rich roasted barley and a mountain of hops to give this full-bodied stout that little extra something you’ve been looking for in a beer.”
Random: I’m really having a hard time finding something on tv to watch without baseball. I guess that UFC will have to do.
This brew poured with a barely there tan head that hung around for the duration of the drinking, but left no lacing on the glass. The body was a deep and dark brown. Due to the color, there was no visible carbonation on the brew. The nose was glorious. It had lots of coffee, roasted malts and chocolate, which is exactly what I expect from a stout. The taste was very much of the same that was apparent in the nose. I got a lot of coffee and roasted malts, not as much chocolate, with a creamy mouthfeel. The brew had very low carbonation and the finish lasted awhile with the roasted malts. It also had medium thickness. This was definitely a great brew and I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to try it. I will definitely have this one again.
