BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Galway Bay Brewery
Ireland | website

Style: Irish Dry Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Decadent and complex while remaining wholly refreshing and drinkable. This stout is brewed with milk sugars and chocolate to give rich flavours and body that goes down smooth. Taste of chocolate and smooth mouthfeel, due to the additions of dark chocolate and milk sugars (lactose) respectively. While dark, rich and decadent this beer finds balance and subtlety in its lightness and drinkability. Great for matching with sweeter dishes and intense desserts.

On tap at BrewDock, Dublin.

Chocolate amber, with creamy tan head that runs away fast but speckles.
Big roasty cocoa bean and chicory nose with some earth and mulch.
Dusty cocoa powder, some coffee bean, German black rye bread and branchy hops.
Cola and ash finish and drying, surprisingly bitter linger.
Almost medium, round, some chew.

Mucho chocolate. A very roasty dry Irish underneath the chocolate (rather than something sweet, as it would be in most chocolate stouts) which makes this pretty lean and a bit too burnt. Different enough to make it a quirky choice as a house stout, though it's still not a great chocolate beer.

Poured a very dark brown, almost black.

Smelled mainly of sweet chocolate, and hints of coffee.

Tasted smooth and sweet over all. Was slightly syrupy and had the chocolate malt taste throughout. Slightly bitter-hop finish and lingering sweetness. Very drinkable and slightly syrupy, but not too much.

Would I buy it again? Yes!

500 ml bottle from a Supervalu in Leitrim. Great mouthfeel. Would have liked a creamy head but was disappointed there. Different but a fine beer.

A: The beer pours a dark black body with a nice tan head.

S: The beer has a nice sweet chocolatey smell with some bitterness too.

T: This is where the beer shines IMO. It has a nice amount of chocolate, milk sweetness, bitter dark malt and a tiny bit of coffee.

M: The beer has an amazing mouthfeel from the nitrotap and goes down so easily with a nice creaminess.

O: This is an amazing beer that I wish we could get in the states..

Very dark brown/black beer. Tanned head that doesn't last long.

Nice bitter chocolate smell, mild malts there too. Hint of coffee and lactose.

Bitter malts, chocolate taste. A lovely mild milky sweetness, but not too much like other milk stouts. Again, slight hint of a coffee taste and some caramel there too.

Great mouthfeel with nice soft carbonation. Silky.

One of my favourite beers.
