Uncle Jim’s Stout: Reviewed By A Husband And Wife

Beer: Uncle Jim’s Stout

Abv: 4.5%

Beer Style: Irish Dry Stout

Brewery: McGargles (Rye River Brewing)

Country of Origin: Irish Republic

Serving methodology: 11.2 oz bottle poured into two pints.


Background: As stated earlier, we are working through a four pack I brought home from a business trip. A better beer flight, if you will.

Taste & Aroma: The smell here is subtle, but it is present. Earthy chocolate and faint coffee are here, not altogether present, but they are here. This is a sharp stout with a strong charcoal/french roast-like bite that screams ashes and burnt malt. The flavors at the start and middle are great. The finish is subtle and bitter. This is a refined stout. Not my favorite, but it is good.


Amanda’s Thoughts: Not as off-putting as most stouts. Less like dirt, but still has a dirt flavor. If this was the only beer available, I’d drink it again.

Final Analysis: Not a bad stout, but not my first choice for an Irish Dry Stout. I’d rather go back to my barley milkshake.
