COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Say hello to the Bearded Lady, our uncompromisingly big and beautiful Imperial Stout. Born from our Dark Arts recipe she uses masses of magical malts to deliver deep chocolate, rich coffee and vinous berry flavours all complemented by a balanced yet subtly spicy hop profile. Powerful, robust, intriguing; yet decadently smooth and sumptuous, the lady demands respect…

Bottle. Pours dark black/brown - slight red tinge when held to light. Thin tan head. Aroma is meaty (teriyaki) , a touch rubbery, chocolate... Full body, mild carbonation.
