COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starr Hill’s Dark Starr Stout has won more national and international awards than any other Dry Irish Stout in the country. Brewed with roasted barley, and with hints of coffee and dark chocolate, it packs a robust taste into a surprisingly light body. This signature brew pours like velvet and drinks like a slice of grandma’s pumpernickel bread.

yngwie (13945) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
It pours a dark brown body, clear looking and topped by a dense, finger-thick light beige head. The aroma is quite burnt and bonfire-like, with some dried fruits. Not my preferred kind of stout I think, even though the flavor is quite pleasant. But in small quantities. Roasted malts, charcoal and some prunes in the flavor, some bitterness. Medium to full body, quite dry, but with some residual sweetness. Lasting burnt and roasted finish. Nah… 131122
