COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first small-batch canned release of 2017 is hot off the press and looks an absolute picture thanks to the amazing custom can artwork from the incredible guys at The Red Dress. We wanted to produce something of true decadence, so have packed into the recipe everything that we could think of to raise the body and make a smooth, truly redolent deep stout.

The four key additions exaggerate the mouthfeel and work with the blend of malts, oats and wheat to leave you with a beer that is best enjoyed on those dark, early-spring evenings when the weather is yet to break and the cold still seeps in around the door jambs. The result? In a word, opulence. The aromas start with cocoa and vanilla but it is the flavour that really holds the key to our latest small-batch release. Chocolate milkshake, roasty espresso and mellow vanilla blend into one in a smooth, full-bodied beer that is rich, deep and rewarding.

Beese (2669) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2017
330ml can from BrewDog online. Very nice milk stout. There's a lot of sweetness, but even though it starts out a little heavy, it balances off nicely. The lingering flavour is sweet, but it's also burnt and it's not at all insipid
