COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION The Bollywood of beers. We wanted to build a recipe which really pushed the love affair between dark malts and hops. So we designed the brew around allowing the hops to sing on top of a dark malt bomb. We aimed to brew an almost dark chocolate-like base beer and then piled on with the tropics of summit and centennial hops, lifting the waves of smooth chocolate off the tongue. We categorise Holy Cowbell as an India stout. ‘India’ coming from the same meaning behind ‘India’ pale ale. Basically lots and lots of hops added in their masses at the end of the boil and then in dry hop, to extract maximal hop flavour and aroma!

midovark (933) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JUN 28, 2017
Can from Beerlovers, Vienna. Pours black colour with beige head. Opens with hoppy bitterness followed by cocoa powder righ away in aroma. Bitterness rule its taste, again with some cocoa notes that last till the finish, which is quite long. Light to medium bodied, has pleasant creamy mouthfeel and is easy to drink. Liked this one very much.

Can was past best before dzte for some months. Great dark robe with whitey-yellowy foam. Nose of coffee, dark fruits and fresh hops and grass. In mouth, the same equation, greatly balanced in a medium body, finished by a light grassy bitterness (lightness certainly due to age of the can). Overall great balance, really fresh and enjoyable.

Grumbo (2946) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2017
Can from Oddbins. Pours very dark brown with a large frothy beige head. Aroma of hops, malt, roasted coffee, chocolate, citrus and pine. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation.

AssKicker (496) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAR 28, 2017
Couleur brune/ambré foncé en versant, noir intense une fois dans le verre. Belle mousse onctueuse qui ne faiblit ni ne trépasse. Nez tout d’abord sur le café qui fini par disparaître pour laisser place à des notes de pin au bout de quelques minutes. En bouche c’est comme au pif : d’abord le café qui fait impression, puis finalement les houblons avec là encore du résineux. En fin de bouche on est plus sur le toffee/caramel avec encore le café qui perdure tout en douceur. En laissant se réchauffer, le côté IPA prend légèrement le dessus par rapport au côté Stout. Bref, v’là un très bon mix des 2 genres.

Can at home. Deep brown, almost black colour small brown lacing. Nose is dissonant. Hops and chocolate. Taste is pretty dissonant as well. Hoppy bitterness with definitve roasted malty notes. Idk. Feels like someone grabbed a wrong bag of malts when brewing an ipa...
