Craft Stouts for St. Patrick’s Day?

By Joash Ethan, Alvin Lim, Ng U-Sern and Mili Lim 

ESTIMATED READING TIME: 1 Minute

 

 

A pot of gold, leprechauns, four-leaf clovers and the colour green are just the few things that come to mind when St. Patrick’s Day is mentioned. But, the number one thing that usually pops up in our mind when the Saint’s day is mentioned is the iconic Guinness Stout.  

 

So, we thought that we should give this day a craft beer twist by listing out a selection of craft stouts that you should try this St. Patrick’s Day. 

 

We’re sure the good Saint won’t mind. 

 

 

1. DARK LORD IMPERIAL STOUT

 

Beer Style: Russian Imperial Stout

ABV: 15%

 

Rated 100 on RateBeer, the Dark Lord Imperial Stout is what hell on Earth should taste like. Brewed with fiery passion, this epic beer is only available one day a year at Three Floyds Brewing Co., Indiana, making it one of the most sought after beers in the world.

 

Brewed with coffee, Mexican vanilla, and Indian sugar, this beer is an explosion of flavour – roasted malt notes, sweet and boozy dried fruits, balanced with vanilla, light honey and a tart finish.

 

 

 

2. MIKKELLER BEER GEEK SERIES 

 

 

There are 7 unique beers with different flavour variations in the ‘Geek Series’ brewed by Mikkeller from Denmark, but the beers that really stand out to us are: 

  • Beer Geek Vanilla Shake, 
  • Beer Geek Dessert, and 
  • Beer Geek Brunch Weasel

 

 

2.1 BEER GEEK VANILLA SHAKE

 

 

Beer Style: Imperial Oatmeal Stout 

ABV: 13% 

 

Adding a truckload of vanilla and coffee into a beer may sound like a bad idea. But hey! Fortunately, this was one idea that ended up tasting amazing.

 

 

2.2 BEER GEEK BRUNCH WEASEL

 

Beer Style: Imperial Oatmeal Stout 

ABV: 10.9% 

 

This imperial oatmeal stout is brewed with one of the world’s most expensive coffees! There’s no going around the fact that the world’s most expensive coffee is made from the bean-containing droppings of a weasel-like civet cat (the Vietnamese variety cà phê Chồn). Trust Mikkeller to come up with such crazy and tasty brews.

 

 

2.3 BEER GEEK DESSERT

 

(Available at Taps Beer Bar while stocks last)

Beer Style: Imperial Oatmeal Stout 

ABV: 11%

 

A beer that tastes like a dark chocolate vanilla cake? Truly a dark and daring dessert in a bottle.

 

 

 

3. OLA DUBH 18 YEARS

 

(Other variations available at Taps Beer Bar while stocks last)

Beer Style: Barrel-Aged Old Ale 

ABV: 8% 

 

Harviestoun’s Old Engine Oil porter is aged in mature Highland Park 18 Year Old Single Malt Whiskey casks. In true St. Patrick’s tradition of dropping a shot of Jameson whiskey into a pint of Guinness Stout, try an Ola Dubh instead. It’s the best of both worlds – whiskey and stout. Need we say more?

 

 

4. EXTRA PORTER WITH GUATEMALAN COFFEE 

 

(Available at Taps Beer Bar while stocks last)

Beer Style: Porter / Stout 

ABV: 7.4% 

 

Waking up to beer is possible with this flavour-packed porter brewed with Guatemalan coffee beans, cacao nibs, and vanilla beans. So, so delicious.

 

Have a St. Patrick’s Day with a craft beer twist this time around. You won’t regret it. Cheers!
