COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A single hopped stout using the intriguing Phoenix, an unusual British hop that gives notes of molasses, Demerara sugar, bitter chocolate and warm spices. We couldnt resist pairing it with a dark, roasty malt bill to create a bold and distinctive beer.

RBESG pt 19. Craft Clerkenwell. Grandish Tasting. Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is airy and crisp and dry. Tangy rich dark malts, some roast bitterness. Light dry finish. Bitter malty linger. Pleasant.

The taste is rich, roasty, earth, coffee, decent bitterness, light pepper, charred wood, dark chocolate with a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Nice chocolate and coffee. Good mouth-feel.

RichTheVillan (2688) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; dark brown pour with a ridiculously large creamy beige head, sweet aroma with some hints of coffee, taste is sweet with bitter chocolate, dark fruits, a hint of liquorice.

downender (6197) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from Corks of North Street. Opaque and almost black in colour, with a big and billowy beige head. Aroma of muscovado sugar, dark fruits and plan chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts, more fruity sweetness and chocolate, leading to a slightly dry finish. Very good.

leebotton (189) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2014
Very slightly metallic bitter chocolate aroma with dark roasty notes and indeed an intriguing hop character. Texture is thick and flavour is chocolatey and delicious with a perfect amount of bitterness and burnt flavour. An absolutely fantastic stout.
