Purity Brewing Co. Gnarly (6.5%)

GnarlyPurity’s new limited edition beer opened with a pop and a sigh and smells a lot like a well baked Victoria sponge cake, it’s an appetising red berry jam and vanilla rich aroma and it makes me want to dive right into the 750ml bottle.
The mix of malts, including rye and smoked, make for a deep dark treacle tart and toast, honey and rum delight, and the hops – Northern Brewer, Cascade and Chinook – add sharp hedgerow greenery, orange marmalade stickiness, lemon sherbet and green tea that prickles away on your tongue.
The whisky cask ageing is subtle but definitely there, adding a peaty old fungal tea chest that makes the beer feel big and round and satisfying, and right in the finish the Victoria sponge pops back up with a sweet grin.
Gnarly, dude.
