COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark Star Stout The second offering in the Serenade Series, this is a traditional dry Irish Stout. It has a deep, dark, mysterious color. Flavors of expresso and chocolate dominate yet a subtle smoky character persists in the background. (There is no coffee or chocolate in there, it’s just the roasted barley.) This recipe was voted Best Stout in the world at the World Beer Cup 2000. This one’s for all you Stout Heads.

Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours an opaque black with a creamy tan head. The nose is very roasty with notes of coffee and wood. The flavor is full of molasses, almost to the point of being overpowering. It is also cloyingly sweet. Some flint and roasted malt comes out as the beer continues to work. This one strikes me as a one note wonder. A medium mouthfeel and a medium finish don’t leave anything to write home about. I would like this brew better if they took their foot off the sweetness pedal.
