Founded in 2014 in a former bakery in Bray, Wicklow Wolf was born from a desire to forge a unique path in the brewing industry, eschewing the corporate Pointy Shoes for a more grounded and authentic approach. Their commitment to quality and community is evident in every batch they brew, with a focus on sustainability and local sourcing.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: This stout pours a deep ebony shade, crowned with a creamy tan head that speaks to its rich texture.
  • Aroma: The aroma offers an intoxicating blend of bourbon, with hints of vanilla and oak that lead into deeper notes of dark chocolate and espresso.
  • Flavour: Each sip unfolds layers of complexity—dark chocolate and roasted coffee are at the forefront, followed by nuances of dark berries and a subtle, smoky sweetness from the bourbon barrels.
  • Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with a velvety smoothness, the stout has a warming alcohol presence balanced by a moderate carbonation that enhances its drinkability.

The robust profile of Pointy Shoes 2023 makes it an ideal match for strong, rich flavours. It pairs exceptionally well with smoked and barbecued meats, where its smoky undertones can complement the charred tastes of the grill. For cheese lovers, this stout cuts through the richness of creamy blue cheeses or sharp cheddars, making for a delightful contrast. For dessert, consider pairing it with a decadent chocolate lava cake or a classic tiramisu; the stout's chocolate and coffee notes will enhance the sweetness and complexity of these desserts.

Furthermore, Pointy Shoes 2023 can be a companion to spicy dishes such as jerk chicken or spicy Szechuan beef. The stout's richness tames the heat while its subtle sweetness rounds out the spices, offering a balanced finish to each meal.
