Either someone spilled beer into the cheese vat, or it was poured in there on purpose! Okay, it was the latter and we're pretty happy about it.
While making Irish cheddar cheese, dark brown Porter beer is poured into the cheese curds. The result is a striking brown and white marbled cheese with the flavors of both cheddar and porter all in one.
Porter beer has deep rich flavors, like that of chocolate, coffee, oats, barley and caramel. These notes are layered on top of the salty sharp flavor of the cheddar. It's match made in heaven: there's so much to taste.
This cheese is made from pasteurized cow's milk in County Limerick, Ireland.
Quite impressive to look at and enjoy, this cheese pairs beautifully with more beer, wine or cider.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 7 ounces and 1 pound. You can also purchase the entire wheel of approx. 4.5-5 pounds.
Ingredients:Irish white cheddar, malted barley and hops extract, burnt sugar, barley.
