Black Rock Irish Stout

Black Rock Irish Stout

A full flavoured dry Irish stout with vanilla and aniseed notes.

This is a full flavoured, smooth, dry stout that has been described on more than one occasion as “the way stout used to taste”. Made from roasted barley which gives a rich, chocolatey flavour complemented by herbal hints and notes of vanilla and aniseed. This is a medium-bodied stout with a light carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel.

Ideally this stout should be served in the traditional south eastern way which is ‘off the shelf’ โ€” ie. at room temperature.

Food Pairings: This stout can be enjoyed with robust meat dishes and also works great as a dessert beer. It is great to cook or bake with as it doesnโ€™t have the same bitterness as other stouts.

Cheese pairings: Stout and blue cheese is a classic pairing as you need something that will hold up to the strong flavour of the cheese. Also works with smoked hard cheddar and other fuller flavoured cheeses.
