Originally specially brewed for the 25th Swindon beer festival.
This award winning dark chocolate stout is the result of a careful mixture of differing malts with the addition of torrefied wheat. Three varieties of hops combine to give a lasting bitterness and freshness resulting in an overall feeling of wellbeing especially as the overtones of coffee linger on the palate. Our first stout – and it’s already an award winner! We worked hard to make Silver Pig Stout a rich, dark and traditional brew that was complex in nature and full of flavour

Cask conditioned handpump Harp London 30/04/13. Note that the pumclip states Siver Pigs Stout but the website keeps referring to this in the singular. Odd. Anyway it’s a black beer with a whitish bubbly head. A dry smoky aroma to this stout. Quite bitter in the mouth without being too roasty. Very tasty and well constructed.

A classic stout, with a blend of chocolate, coffee and caramel. It pours with an average cream to tan head which dissipates slowly as you drink it. The beer is dark brown in colour, there is a modest after taste of coffee and intense bitterness, which is mellowed by the wheat. A good quality stout and a really good beer for a cold night.

Bottle at a Chriso tasting, London - thanks to the big man himself. Pours rich, red-brown with a sturdy, tan cream head. Dusty cocoa nose. Light to medium sweet with a very smooth flavor of dark bread, cocoa and faint earth. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Light to medium sweet finish with dusty cocoa, a bit of lightly earthy hops, basic toast. A very drinkable beer overall.

Sample at ÖÖWF 2012. It poured a dark brown liquid that I could see through. Smell was roasted with some dark malts and chocolate. Similar taste. This felt more like a porter or even brown ale then a stout. I miss the roasted barley.
