This Irish dry stout has been handcrafted using only the finest ingredients to create a beer, full of character and of true Irish pedigree just like that of the ’immortal black’ Master McGrath.
A traditional dry stout, combining rich roasted malts with hints of coffee and dark fruit, balanced carefully by the earthy hops - smooth on the palate with a lingering dry finish!

patricks110 (2419) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
A nice heavy stout in the irish style with a big tan head that makes the beer look amazing. The nose has mild roasted notes as well as a mild milk chocolate aroma. Dry flavor profile with just a hint of malt sweetness and an astringent and roasty bittered finish
