Profanity Stout is the first in the Williams Bros ’chapeau’ series, in which we celebrate the skills of amateur brewers whose beers we think are exceptoinal and should be made available to a wider audience. With Profanity Stout we doff our caps to Peter and Craig, the ’Balls to the Wall’ brewing duo, who developed this recipe as students on the brewing course at Edinburgh’s Heriot Watt University. The beer is a blend of rich coffee and intensely fruity hop aromas on a base of full velvety malty mouthfeel.

pastymc (39) - Niscemi, ITALY - JUN 1, 2015
Bottiglia da 33 cl Molto scura, con leggeri riflessi ambrati; poca schiuma, color nocciola, volatile. Al naso il malto tostato è dominante, con sfumature di caffè, frutta secca, leggero alcool, caramello e un finale resinoso e fruttato. In bocca entra morbidissima, note di cappuccino, nocciola, frutta scura; l’amaro finale rende il tutto molto equilibrato. Bassa carbonazione, corpo medio. Ottimo equilibrio e buona struttura, di piacevole beva, anche se non molto lunga e complessa.
