COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle, regular
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!
