But before you dive into a thick-headed snifter of stout, here’s a Quick Guide to Dark Beer.
Dad & Dave’s Oak & Whiskey Porter, 375ml Can, ABV 6%
A smooth velvety porter rich in chocolate and caramel notes. Fermented on fresh French oak and a touch of whiskey to promote subtle flavours and aromas of vanilla.
Yulli’s x Moon Dog ‘Major Mac’ Spiced Fig & Coconut Milk Stout, 375ml Can, ABV 6%
Major Mac’s Spiced Fig and Coconut Milk Stout is a wonderfully textured and hearty stout making use of an enticing array of adjuncts, perfect for the depths of an isolated winter in 2020. A healthy dose of Coconut Milk provides a creamy layer of sweetness alongside a rich crystal and chocolate malt backbone for a full bodied mouthfeel and dessert-like finish. Pairs well with Pecan Crumble Pie . Brewed in collaboration with our good friends at Moondog Brewing Co.
Moon Dog Cake Hole Black Forest Stout, 375ml Can, ABV 6.5%
How big do you reckon the biggest ever black forest cake was? Pretty freakin ‘big!’ Weighing 3000 kg and packed full of sour cherries, cacao and a whole lotta love… just like this stout! Imagine trying to fit that in ya cake hole!
Hope Chocolate Milk Porter, 375ml Can, ABV 5%
An intense beer with upfront sweetness from the addition of lactose (Milk Sugar) to the beer, This sweetness is balanced nicely against the dark chocolate flavours of the beer and the bitterness provided from the cocoa helps to dry out the finish so that the beer is not cloying.
