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.

28/VIII/17 - 33cl can from a trade, shared @ Seb's Short Belgium Stay-over Tasting - BB: 11/III/18 (2017-1461) Thanks to Valerie and Neil for the trade!


Clear dark brown beer, small creamy light beige head, little stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweet, some caramel, lots of coffee, lots of chocolate, pretty roasted. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very sweet, lots of caramel, bit of coffee, bitter touch, sugary malts, some chocolate. Aftertaste: some vanilla, sugary, pretty roasted, coffee, caramel, chocolate, a little too sweet and sugary, but in all a very nice beer. No clue why it was so ridiculously expensive!

Utter rubbish. Cloyingly sweet with no redeeming features as far as I'm concerned. Like drinking maple syrup. Avoid! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
