The second offering in the Serenade Series, this is a traditional dry Irish Stout. It has a deep, dark, mysterious color. Flavors of expresso and chocolate dominate yet a subtle smoky character persists in the background. (There is no coffee or chocolate in there, it’s just the roasted barley.) This recipe was voted Best Stout in the world at the World Beer Cup 2000. This one’s for all you Stout Heads. 5 different espressos added directly to the cask.

    Pours a deep, opaque sable, almost black, with a thick tan head that sticks around for a bit. Rich, smoky, roast-coffee aroma has hints of hops and malt. Flavor is much like a fine iced coffee with an undertone of unsweetened chocolate - it hardly tastes like beer. Smooth, rather fizzy texture leaves a pleasing finish.
