Dingle, Around The Clock, Whiskey Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, 12%

What’s unusual about Around The Clock is that both the beer & the whiskey barrels it’s aged in are part of the same company – PorterHouse.

Rich! c/othewhiskeynut

Displaying a dark, heavy & rich treacly quality augmented by a sweetness from the Dingle Whiskey barrels – Around The Clock is a fine example of the barrel aged category.

Porterhouse Celebration Stout, 4th Barrel Aged Release, 12%

An unexpected serve at Dingle Distillery for the Irish Whiskey Awards 2019 event was this Celebration Stout from Porterhouse Brewery.

I say unexpected as I’d not come across this one before – and obviously missed the previous 3 offerings.

Rich & dark, the sweet malty notes on the nose from the ex bourbon barrels used to mature this beer pulled me in.

The palate had a dark fruitiness to it – ex port casks (a favourite of Dingle Whiskey) contributed to this element – and the carbonation being light suited my tastes.

Full bodied & bursting with flavour this isn’t a shy stout – I certainly warmed to it’s delights.

Clearly the judges thought so too – as Celebration Stout went on to win the Best Irish Whiskey Barrel Aged Beer category .

A worthy winner!
