It’s been a little while since I last opened a Hopshackle beer and usually I buy their, how shall I describe them, more specialist brews – You know, the high ABV delights that this brewery does so well.
But I saw this on the shelf and just had to give it a go.
And I’m glad that I did.
This is a really satisfying beer.
Thick, unguent caramel malt.
Rich with toffee and cut through with peppercorns and a hint of mace.
Then there’s a good helping of stewed fruits before the grassy hop kicks in leaving a long dry, bitter finish.
A great, old fashioned bitter.
