Lough Gill Rebel Stout No 1 11% ABV; 440ml — €4.99

Stock­ists: Bradleys, Mat­sons, Red­monds, McHughs, Black­rock Cel­lar, Martins. Lough Gill Brew­ery in Sligo Town was founded in De­cem­ber 2016 by James Ward, the man be­hind White Hag in the early days. Af­ter he sold out to his in­vestors, Ward founded Lough Gill and has a range of in­trigu­ing beers. He also has what is one of the most cre­ative and prob­a­bly the youngest brewer in the coun­try in Jor­dan Don­nelly, 22.

This was part of a series of four lim­ited-edi­tion im­pe­rial stouts and the style will soon en­ter the core range with the launch of Dark Magic any day now. Rich cof­fee and mocha aro­mas, silky tex­tures with com­plex milk choco­late and spice on the fin­ish.
