BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Galway Bay Brewery
Ireland
galwaybaybrewery.com

Style: Milk / Sweet 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.

Pint on keg at The Salt House, Galway, Ireland (€5):
This one was a very nice first beer from the Galway Bay Brewery & one that I was happy to have tracked down after much searching in the city's bars that day. The beer was a very well-balanced, smooth offering that started with quite a lot of chocolate flavours coming through & a decent amount of sweetness too; an excellent stout & one that I'd be happy to go back to in the future.

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.

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.
