Recipe: Irish Stout

Despite the rich, dark colour, Irish stout is one of the lightest and most sessionable beers on draft. Our Irish stout has a delicious coffee-like character from the roasted barley, and a gentle biscuity malt background from the Maris Otter. Flaked barley enhances the creamy mouthfeel. This beer finishes dry to keep you coming back for another sip.
