Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
Thumbing through her grandfather’s books, Dorothy came upon a recipe for a wonderful stout with intense roasted barley flavours and a dry, bitter finish.
Together with her friend Jimmy, our head brewer, she created this dark, full-bodied number. It boasts roasted coffee notes and plenty of hop flavour.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 Mild stout, lett-drukken. Litt lite aroma, litt flat smak. Noe bitter ettersmak. Anbefales dersom man vil ha en lett stout. Passer nok bra til mat, da den trolig Ikke vil være dominerende ifht maten som serveres.
