When you get to that time of day when that cup of hot coffee is no longer the answer, and you need something with a little extra kick, plait your bear, stick on your eye patch and grab a Black Perle. This milk stout is chock full of roasty malts, milk sugar, hopped with hand full’s of perle plundered from the unsuspecting and aged on a chest full of Zamorana coffee beans.
Brewed in partnership with www.alchemycoffee.co.uk

TET (2548) - Kaarina, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Almost black beer with a very big, clouding and light brown head. Temptating appearance. Aroma has strong coffee and roastiness, salt liquirice, some pine forest and sweetness of chocolate. Taste has strong coffee, lactose, roastiness, and some salt liquirice, hint of chocolate. Medium bodied, smooth and pleasant palate. Huge amount of flavours in these abv. Tasteful beer with the strong coffee but that’s mixed nicely into the other rich flavours. Great beer.
