Crafty Brewing Irish Stout Review
This Is My Crafty Brewing Irish Stout Review
This is the review of the stout., as part of my guide to craft beers. A dark, full bodied Irish stout. Poured nicely, although the head did look rather light in texture, but did settle down. The head has a slight coffee coloured tint to it. Rye River Brewing Company, based in Co Kildare produce this stout. This is a nice Irish product!
The Rye River Brewery
The story of the Rye River Brewing Company began back in 2013 with the introduction of the McGargles brand. We have grown both our team and our product range since then. Based in Celbridge, Kildare the brewery employs over 40 people. We now produce a range of over twenty beers under the Solas, Crafty Brewing Company, Grafters and McGargles brands
A deep, coffee and also dark chocolate taste comes through. First impressions were this was quite a bland taste, compared to the aroma. However this was not the case at all. The taste lasted down to the bottom of the glass, the chocolate / coffee taste holding out to the end. Ideal to sit and enjoy in front of a log fire in Winter months, but equally drinkable with a homemade steak and ale pie or other comfort food with red meat.

Beer Enjoyment Score Total
I liked this more than I thought I would do. The dark colour had a tint of ruby to it which made it a very dark stout, compared to some which added to the enjoyment. At 4.5% volume this is worthy of an enjoyable 8 out of 10 any day of the week. The wholesome flavour, the dark chocolate / coffee taste doesn’t disappoint at all. I do prefer this compared to the Titanic Plum Porter that I reviewed earlier.
