Croak & Stagger is a 5.6% dark, full flavoured beer. This recipe for this chestnut-coloured brew includes American Cascade hops which contribute a sweet and spicy note to the aroma. The use of English Marris Otter pale malt, crystal malt, wheat malt and chocolate malt gives a flavour that is initially roasted and slightly bitter and develops to give a slight hint of dried vine fruits. The flavour of the Cascade hops and bitterness produced by the addition of English Target hops combine to produce an astringent aftertaste. This bottled beer was described as "a cold weather winner" in the Times newspaper of 18th April 1998, when it was rated as joint-second against bottled beers from around the country.

Bottle conditioned. Deep chestnut colour, good creamy white head and low condition. Good aromas of hops, roast barley and chocolate. Quite sweet flavours with the chocolate dominating at the start but the roast barley returns and lingers in the dry finish, along with a warming alcoholic kick.

Bottled. Deep ruby. Complex vinuous nose. Full bodied and deliciously malty with soft mouthfeel. Flowery, orangey and very bitter finish. A winner in my book!
