A dry stout of incomparable quality carefully crafted to resemble the classics known throughout the world.
For this beer we went back to basics with a simple grain bill that spotlights the soul of any stout: roasted barley. Expect a clean malt character balanced by the bitterness of hops and roasted barley, topped of with a dry finish that includes notes of coffee and dark chocolate. But don’t be deceived by the darkness- this black beauty goes down smooth with a just-right roasty bite that will keep you coming back for more.

Our finished product is very good, excellent flavor, but not quite what we expected from a kit labeled as an Irish Stout. It is lighter in color and opacity than the images shown on the listing. Ours turned out much closer to a brown ale than a stout. We would like to try the recipe again but add a bit of Carafa III to the mix. We only have one bottle left of our 10 that we had before the holidays, so it wasn't a bad brew by any means. It was very good.
Our first gallon brew. It is not as smooth as some stouts more fizz. Still enjoyable. Fun for an easy brew compared to the 5 gallons we normally brew. Definitely try other gallon brews.
Still hasn't finished brewing. So because of the relentless emails here is my review. Beautiful box with a little round red sticker with white lettering. Some ingredients, some words on paper. Fast shipping. Haven't finished brewing the beer. So without actually making the beer the best review I can offer is that the packaging is 5 star worthy. Great job.
