Salopian Brewery Meraki (4.8%)

Even though my bottle of Meraki appears to be entirely made of froth, this is a superb little Milk Stout.
It’s as black as pitch with an unbelievably big fluffy head and a smell that’s heavy with woodbines and cocoa.
The malting is thick and gloopy and rich, all chocolate digestive biscuits, burned wholemeal toast, espresso and charcoal, while the hops are a crunchy walk through the leaf litter of Salopianks surrounding Shropshire countryside.
Maple syrup and hazel leaves, chestnuts and nettle tea, green herbal hedgerow and the faint whiff of woodland walks, Meraki is a super beer, even when glimpsed through the fog of froth I’ve had to contend with.
