Hops: Goldings, Fuggles, Mosaic (Dry)
Greg hasn’t really liked stout in the past but was tasked with creating one. He doesn’t enjoy the dark roasted malt that gives Stout its unique flavour and body (especially imperial styles). Not one to shy away from a challenge he tried 58 different versions with his father in law and settled that a ‘Milk Stout’ was the way to go.
A Milk Stout with a twist. Stouts use darkly roasted malt to create the colour and ‘bitterness’ which can be quite polarising for some beer drinkers. We’ve used less darkly roasted malt and used the natural sweetness of caramel and lactose to give a beautiful sweet stout. Back hopped with mosaic will leave you with a malty biscuit based and blueberry on the nose.
Tasting Notes: Brewed with the addition of lactose, ours is a sweeter take on a traditional stout which works well with rich chocolate desserts where the delicate blueberry and caramel in the beer are complemented by the foods rich flavour. Pairs nicely with cheeses like Stilton or Comte.
