Right then we’re back on track.
After the relative disappointment of my last De Molen beer, this one is right back up there.
This is a great big stout, just perfect for ending the evening on.
Heaven & Earth is made with a heavily peated malt that gives a depth of flavour akin to your favourite single malt whisky.
Which is hardly surprising I guess.
The beer is black hole dark with just a ring of bubbles for a head, while the smell is bitter chocolate and rich, raw earth.
As you take a swig you get a little blast of brandy steeped red fruits before liquorice root bursts in, and coupled with the smoky earthiness and a sandy dry bitter chocolate, this triumvirate becomes a singularly intense experience.
Oh, and the hops are big and bad too.
Dry crispy autumn leaf goodness that removes all the moisture from your mouth and leaves you with an aftertaste that goes on forever.
