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.

    Poured a pitch black with little head. Aroma contains chocolate, grapes, licorice. The flavor is malty with some chocolate and vanilla but also sour with grapes and raisins. This is more like a foreign stout with that aspect which is good. Overall a good beer.

    This is a very aggressive dry stout. Dry stout often means bland, but this has a ton of roast and a bit of that ashy flavor that some coffee stouts end up with, but only a touch. Very tasty stout.

    Color is a rich deep chocolaty brown with a very thick head. Aroma is decidedly stouty with a hint of coffee. Flavor is very dark, with burnt hints and undertones of chocolate and coffee. This is a very tasty stout that has a deep flavor but is not heavy or overwhelming. Recommended to all stout and porter fanatics.
