Irish Style Stout

12 oz stubbie bottle as per the usual Sprecher presentation. Thanks go out to Kevin for the chance to try this beer.
The bottom line with Sprecher is that they produce some great examples of simple styles, that are generally under-appreciated outside of their immediate locale, and by America geeks in general.
Simple black body with a modest head.
The thing I like about both the nose and taste associated with this beer is that they both represent a VERY light, balanced profile that sits in a drinkability range which is accessible. The ABV, although it could be much lower, also adds to the drinkability, ad the beer is one that one can really attack as a satisfying DRINK as opposed to SIPPING!
Very light malts and a gentle bakers chocolate touch on the beer. Light in the mouth with a pleasing kiss of bitterness in the back end. Finish is dry as expected, but again it’s perfectly balanced and only represents a subtle brush with that characteristic.
Impressive, tasty, drinkable and overall just a really pleasing beer. Not the first time that I’ve said that about Sprecher.
