In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, we here at ManDay Monday are drinking Boulder Beer Company’s Irish Blessing Oak-Aged Coffee Stout. It’s kind of tasty, too!
It’s hard to branch out from Guinness on Saint Patrick’s Day, but it’s harder still to turn down a coffee stout aged on Tullamore DEW-soaked oak chips. We sacrifice. For you. You’re welcome.
This beer doesn’t have the body you would expect and comes in a little thin. But it does have a great coffee-hued nose and a baker’s chocolate flavor that dominates. Sadly we don’t get much of the whiskey influence, but there’s a tad oak on the finish that reminds you it might be there.
