Irish Dry Stout |  5.00% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
"a dry Irish Stout we did for a Celtic Fest that we sponsor here in California that was simply poured via nitro." Draft only.

"Knightro – Celtic Festival Beer
A fully Nitrogenated beer designed as our take on the creamy dry stouts of Ireland with a decidedly Sierra Nevada twist. Knightro is black in color but surprisingly light in body with rich caramel and chocolate malty flavors. It has a creamy mouthfeel and gentle carbonation from the use of a high percentage of Nitrogen instead of the typical carbon dioxide."

On nitro tap at The Surly Goat in West Hollywood, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and nut aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is light, tasty, and very easy to drink.

A: Pours black with a very creamy off-white head, looks like a typical nitro dry stout.

S: Roasted malt, medium roast coffee and dark chocolate in the nose.

T: Roasty with some dark chocolate and medium roast coffee, not very bitter.

M: Creamy smooth, very pleasant and medium bodied.

O: Like so many other micro brewed nitro stouts, this is typical of the style, but a bit more complex. Tasty, smooth and recommended.

Yum, light, low carbonation, has the taste of the nitro

Shared a taster on-tap as part of four flights at the brewery; Sierra Nevada Brewing Co, Chico, USA. As part of a six-week West Coast beer tour. I rate to taste, not to style. See my blog for more details: carbeers.wordpress.com
