COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On keg for Burns Night, 2013 at The Hanging Bat. Brewed with 7 malts and 5 spices for an authentic haggis experience. We left out the entrails but kept the oatmeal and brewed with British malt and hops.

Keg at hanging bat. Black with a tan head. Slightly perfumed spice aroma, at first I thought it was cloves (I’m not a big fan of cloves) but after speaking to the brewer was informed it’s probably ginger that I was picking up (not a big fan of ginger either), quite peppery, it does actually smell quite like haggis. Taste has more of the zingy ginger and spices follwed by a luscious chocolatey roasty finish. The palate is excellent, smooth and elegant with lots of body. This was nice and very interesting, the haggis spices are well measured but I think I would have preferred a straight stout without the spices or at least without the ginger ;)
