The Story
There’s a common tale among Irish immigrants, that the tall, dark and handsome Irish good looks came from a fabled Spanish armada of sailing ships that broke up in a storm off southwest Ireland. The Spanish sailors who survived found their way into Irish life and left their mark, so to speak. Since then, these descendants have been referred to as the “Black Irish”. We thought it quite fitting to name our American Stout, “Black Irish” in honor of all those handsome immigrants.

Cicerone Notes

Medium ester profile.Moderate to very high roasted malt flavors, tasting of coffee, roasted coffee beans, dark or bittersweet chocolate.
