Galway Bay, Counting Off The Days, Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, 13.6%

Well I was in Galway – the county at least.

And I did have a couple of Galway Bay beers to share.

So the evening started off with an enjoyable dark lager – Tmavy Lezak at 5% – which is always a favourite style of mine.

Having first encountered a black lager at a shopping centre in Potsdam, Germany – visually appearing as stout yet tasting like a slightly burnt fresh lager gave an entertaining experience – I seek out these enjoyable beers & Galway Bay’s offering didn’t disappoint.

The main event however was a stonking 13.6% Barrel Aged Imperial Stout by the name of Counting Off The Days.

Rich dark & chocolatey – & that’s just the nose!

The palate was so rich & dense with flavour you could chew on it.

Yet there was a lively fresh vanilla from the barrel ageing too.

Top stuff!

We had a whiskey chaser on standby for afterwards – but I’m afraid Counting Off The Days counted us out & we were unable for additional alcohol.

One to drink & enjoy with friends.
