‘Black Irish’ is often a description of people of Irish origin who had dark features, black hair, dark complexion and eyes. A popular theory suggests the Black Irish are descendants of survivors of the Spanish Armada. A Dublin Extra Stout. Gutsy and bitter. Brewed with roasted barley, Maris Otter and crystal malt and Bullion Willamette, Chinook and Simcoe hops.

Keg at Craft Beer Rising 2014 - Brick Lane, London. Pours black-brown with a frothy tan head. Decent roasted malts in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavour, with notes of burnt toast, dark sugars, cocoa, light earthy bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty well balanced on the finish, with light roast, mild cocoa. Good stuff.
