Description and Tasting Notes

A much deeper and more complex stout than the ABV would suggest arrives with waves of coffee and dark chocolate. Pouring a very dark brown with a crema-coloured foam lacing the sides of the glass there’s a gentle hoppy freshness in the aroma from a dose of Summit hops late in the boil, and this is picked up on the palate too, adding a refreshing modern touch to the classic roasty profile from the blend of malted grains. A helping of oats and a high finishing gravity provide a smooth mouthfeel and satisfying body.

Can/keg/cask conditioned, vegan friendly
