behemoth irish champagne

It wouldn’t be St Patrick’s day without at least one Guinness clone, and this year Behemoth provided it.  Not to suggest it’s a gimmick beer though, far from it, so feel free to try it even though St Paddy’s day was 10 days ago!  This one is a great wee example of the style, with an invitingly roasty nose of dark chocolate, black coffee and a gentle hop freshness in the background.  The palate is dry (as the name suggests) and lifted, with just enough deep roasted malt flavour to make it satisfying to drink while staying lightweight and refreshing.  It still needs a nitro can to really emulate the style, but it’s still great to see these beers made every now and then.
