St. Paddy’s Day is upon us, and it’s time to break out the stouts! BrewSA decided to bring us a taste of the Emerald Isle with some killer offerings for the season. This is their Dry Irish Stout – a deep dark brew that is suprisingly light on the palette and extremely drinkable. A touch of some hop bitterness providing some counterpoint to a big, dark, roasty malt profile. Silky texture, with coffee, espresso and chocolate aromas all surrounded by a pillowy offwhite head. As far as Irish Stouts go, this one is right on the mark. Sláinte!
Moderate roasted grain or malt flavor with a medium to high hop bitterness. The finish can be dry and coffee-like to moderately balanced with a touch of caramel or malty sweetness. Typically has coffee-like flavors, but also may have a bittersweet or unsweetened chocolate character in the palate, lasting into the finish. Balancing factors may include some creaminess, medium-low to no fruitiness, and medium to no hop flavor (often earthy). The level of bitterness is somewhat variable, as is the roasted character and the dryness of the finish; allow for interpretation by brewers.
