Irish Stout (5.3% ABV): A Bronze Medal winner at the 1989 GABF, this beer is a dry Irish stout that is brewed with a base of Authentic Irish Stout malt, and then adding flaked and roasted barley, black malts, imported Northern Brewer and domestic Willamette hops. Rubicon Irish Stout was nitrogen poured. The beer has a deep black color with tan foam and tiny bubbles that left a nice lace down the sides of the glass. The beer had a roasted malt, dark roasted coffee, and dark bread aroma. Irish Stout is light-bodied and creamy with low carbonation. The beer has a roasted malt and coffee flavor with a dry dark chocolate and deft mild hops finish. This is an excellent beer that took me to the Emerald Isle.
