SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The St. Louis Brewery's seasonal, the Schafly Irish-Style Extra Stout, is this week's beer of the week.

The brew is a fuller bodied Irish dry stout. It goes down smoothly despite its 8 percent alcohol by volume.

The stout pours nearly black with a quickly dissipating brown head. It features notes of chocolate and coffee on the nose. Drinkers will also pick up flavors of chocolate and coffee, along with a nice roasted maltiness.

"This beer will make a perfect companion or alternative to your Guinness stew," said Joe Hotek of John's Grocery, 401 E. Market St.

I imagine it would also make a great alternative to Guinness in Irish Car Bombs, too. This St. Patrick's Day, treat yourself, and avoid the light beer masked with green food coloring.
