Eight Degrees - Knockmealdown - Stout - 5.0% ABV, 50l Keg (88 Pints)

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

Price above is Keg Only - Vat Included.

Like tackling the Knockmealdowns in a blizzard, this beer is not for wimps. Balancing dark malts with bitter hops, this robust stout offers a rich chocolaty aroma and distinctive espresso flavour. It has a smooth, full body with a dry finish. Makes a beef stew taste that bit beefier, contrasts beautifully with blue cheese or savour with an intense chocolate cake.

Knockmealdown Irish Stout was named Best in Ireland in the Stout category at the 2016 World Beer Awards and was awarded a gold star at the 2014 Great Taste Awards.

Style: Dry Irish stout

Malt: Irish pale malt, dark crystal, roasted barley, chocolate malt, flaked barley.

Hops: Fuggles, Admiral.

Strength: 5% ABV

Bitterness: 41 IBUs

Tasting notes: Colour/appearance: pours a jet black with a tan head.

Aroma: a malt-forward, espresso and molasses nose.

Flavour: roasted mocha with smooth mouthfeel and a solid bitter backbone.

Aftertaste: dry milk chocolate in the finish.

Food pairings: When the weather turns cold, this works brilliantly in, and with, a traditional beef and stout stew. Try it with lobster and prepare to be pleasantly surprised as the beer brings out the sweetness in the shellfish.

For something completely different, hang on to the stout for the end of the meal; bold chocolate and espresso flavours make it good accompaniment to a dense, dark chocolate cake or contrast the sweetness of the stout with the saltiness of our local Cashel Blue cheese.

Well worth trying in a chocolate cake or these Double Chocolate Knockmealdown Irish Stout Brownies.
