Our Irish style stout brings home a taste of the emerald isle. Brewed with black patent malt we then slightly sour the mash to give it a hint of tangy sweet. Then we finish it all off with a low C02 volume and a creamy nitrogen head.

    Went to Big Bubba's BBQ and they had this beer on tap. Apparently it's now their contract brewery, and I was pretty damned geeked up because these guys (Rascal Creek) brewed up one of my favorite b-wines of all time. Well, in the end the beer I had was a real letdown. Not sure what happened, but this is the gist of it.

    The beer came to me in a shaker glass, nice one finger khaki head, solid black base. Nice. Aroma was a bit heavy with the ashy black patent over roast aroma. It wasn't too far over the edge, but it was creeping close. Still, a decent mocha character was trying to shine. Mouthfeel was close to being too thin, but still maintained a subtle creamyness that saved it. Flavor was a bit acrid and astringent, with a heavy dose of ashyness I just don't care for. Yet even with those detractions, it still held it's head high and was a decent drinking stout. Not that I'd get a 2nd pint, but not bad enought where I wouldn't buy it again if I ever revisited the place. Somewhere between great and crap lies this beer.
