Yard of Ale Black As Owt
Cask; Status uncertain.
This dark, traditional stout made its debut at our Halloween festival and was an immediate hit. At 4.2% it offers a thirst-quenching alternative with roasted coffee flavours and a medium-bitter finish.
Many stouts do not fit the classic "Irish" definition as exemplified by Guinness, either due to their hop or roast rates, or higher gravity (in the case of many American stouts). They are still basic stouts, however, not falling into any of the subclasses.
