COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Profanity Stout is the first in the Williams Bros chapeau series, in which we celebrate the skills of amateur brewers whose beers we think are exceptoinal and should be made available to a wider audience. With Profanity Stout we doff our caps to Peter and Craig, the Balls to the Wall brewing duo, who developed this recipe as students on the brewing course at Edinburghs Heriot Watt University. The beer is a blend of rich coffee and intensely fruity hop aromas on a base of full velvety malty mouthfeel.

Pours black with a brown tinge little to no head. Nose is heavy on the booze, tinge of sweet caramel. Taste is bitter upfront peppery hops and thin mouthfeel. Balance is not there, may be an old beer but dissapointing.

Ipanainen styt. humalainen, mutta liian perus luonteeltaan. Paksuutta ja omaleimaisuutta kiitos.

arkanu (52) - Iasi, ROMANIA - APR 22, 2016
A beer thats okay, but could have been better. Color is really nice, deep black, absolutely no light coming through the glass, with a good, creamy head. Taste is full of coffee and thats kind of all. Something is a bit sour too, but cant put a name to it. Not a bad stout, but not to be remembered.
