George Killian’s Irish Stout, the new offering by MillerCoors, is going year-round early next year after a successful launch in test markets.
According to MillerCoors, “Killian’s Irish Stout’s full-bodied flavor and dark brown color has been attracting fans for the past seven years when it was brewed annually for a festival in Dublin, Ohio. Starting this [past] September, Irish Stout [was made] available in select markets on draft.”
Since then, the company has rolled out the beer in bottles as well and it will be available year-round beginning in February in both 6-packs and draft.
Tasting notes from the official George Killian’s site:
Very dark chocolate brown with a thick caramel colored foam cap.
Dark chocolate bouquet with subtle roasted coffee notes.
Slight roasted coffee flavor without being overly bitter or heavy.
Medium to full-bodied with little astringency.
Very smooth with lingering chocolate roasted sweetness.
