McMenamins Irish Stout


Brewed by McMenamins Pubs and Breweries
Portland, Oregon USA
Style: Dry Stout | Ratings: 26 | Spring Seasonal | Alcohol: 4.7%
What better way to honor St. Patrick's Day than with a fabulous stout brewed in the dry Irish style. McMenamins Irish Stout belongs to the dry Irish family and is brewed in the tradition of many famous Irish brews including Murphys, Beamish, and of course, Guinness. The term dry refers to the lack of residual sweetness found in some stouts. This quality provides a clean, crisp and refreshing draught. Aromas of chocolate and malt combine with hoppy, herbal nuances. The taste is complex, including pronounced roast barley flavors and a rich, bready warmth. These essences give way to a pleasing chocolate-espresso richness balanced by an herbal hop twang. Starts pouring March Grains: Pale Malt, Victory Malt, Flaked Barley, Chocolate Malt, and Roast Barley Hops: Kent Goldings Specifications: Original Gravity: 1.044; Terminal Gravity: 1.007; Alcohol by Weight: 3.7%
