The Black Road is the hillwalker route up Galtybeg and onto the higher Galtymore for magical views across the countryside. Inspired by the mountains, we’ve brewed a porter using Belgian and German malts that impart beech- and oak-smoked flavours along with coffee notes.
Dark, smooth and complex, this is the beer that we want to drink while camping beside enchanted Lough Curra below Galtymore on a chilly evening: a just reward for an afternoon’s scramble up this glorious mountain.
A rich mahogany brown in the glass, topped with a sturdy tan head. Flavours of sweet liquorice, muscovado sugar and light smoke. Gentle woodsmoke coming through on the palate with sweet caramel undertones. Malty, complex and balanced.
Aftertaste of bitterness coming through at the end, with a final singe of smoke.
