Irish Dry Stout

Irish Dry Stout

Guiness is the most renowned Irish Stout on the market today. To keep a creamy mouthfeel most bars will pour it via Nitro lines; tap lines that use Nitrogen gas instead of CO2. All stouts were orginally brewed as “stout” porters; stronger and more roasted versions of classic porters. They are brewed with roasted barley which give it the distinctive coffee flavour.
