Well winter is well and truly setting in and we have got some great winter warmers to come your way. Whether it be a dark and bold aged stout or a light spiced pumpkin beer, we have it all this winter. So here goes here our some of our favourites this week:
Fullers Black Cab Stout 4.2%- An Oldie but a goodie this brewery has been going since 1845 so we can definitely vouch for their brewing pedigree. This beer has lots of chocolate and red berries on the nose and a toasted oaty finish on the palate. This beer goes very well with a bit of dark chocolate on a cold winters night.
Rebel Brewing Co. 80 Shilling 5%- A typical scottish ale this beauty of a beer hits you with roasted malts and burnt chocolate on the nose and tickles the taste buds with raisins and treacle. Try this with a chicken sunday roast with loads of roasted root veg.
Schneider-Weisse Tap 6 Unser Aventinus 8.2%- A standout wheat doppelbock that is absolutely perfect for warming your cockles. Be warned this beer can go down far too easily. Bananas, raisins and plums are just some of the aromas to look out for in this complex wheat beer. The palate is just as robust with banana, burnt caramel and clove. Try this with a bit of stilton for a funky match.
Goose Island Bourbon County Stout 15%- One of the staff’s (and many a customer) favorite barrel aged stouts. This beauty of a beer needs no introduction and we are lucky enough to have a steady supply at the moment. As dark and dense as they come with chocolate, vanilla and oak on the nose. When this touches the lips the intensity becomes all too apparent as the dark black liquid warms the palate with dark chocolate, vanilla and a slight bourbon burn. One to really savour with friends this one, if you haven’t tried it why are you still reading this? We’re open till 6pm tonight*! *friday 8th November
