LINEMAN 7.7% ASTRAL GRAINS FOREIGN EXTRA STOUT
If only there were more like Mark Lucey who reacted to his midlife crisis by setting up his own micro in the hoppy surrounds of Rathcoole, Co. Dublin.
Having impressed with Lineman’s Saga Tart Kveik, Idle RIPA and First Light Grisette, he now totally blows our socks off with this big beast of a Belgian-style stout, which is as easy to drink as that is difficult to say.
Dark chocolate, dried fruit and quadruple espresso coffee flavours abound in a brew that being of the continental persuasion should be served chilled.
At over a fiver a can it’s not cheap but, to take Jennifer Aniston out of context, you’re worth it!
