Old Yale Brewing Screaming Banshee Irish Cream Stout: Formerly know as Larry’s Irish Cream Stout, this 7.5% abv beer is brewed in Chilliwack, BC and is infused with Irish cream to give it some extra flavour and flair.
Aroma and Appearance: Pours dark red with some decent lacing foam and carries an aroma of sweet dark coffee, cream, Irish whiskey and roasted grains.
Flavour: Super smooth thick creamy stout with lots of roasted grains and toasted bread up front. It has a milky flavour accompanied by a super creamy texture in the middle while it finishes with notes of dry chocolate some Irish Whiskey in the aftertaste.
Overall Impression: Really well done, perfect for the holiday and super fresh. Lots of roasty goodness here and the Irish cream adds to the flavour without overpowering the beer.
Rating: I would rate about 8/10 for a craft beer as in excellent. This would make a great St. Patrick’s Day beer, but can be enjoyed at any time.
Food Pairing: Irish Kerrygold dubliner cheese, or some chocolate stout cake.
