Flying Dog Brewing Co. Earl Grey Black Wheat (6.3%)

Earl Grey Black Wheat - 1Part of Flying Dog’s Brewhouse Rarities series, Earl Grey Black Wheat is yet another great little beer from this brewery.
Beginning with liquorice and treacle up your nose and on your tongue, you know you’re in for a deep dark ride.
You get that Flying Dog thing too.
You know, that round resinous redwood thing that all their beers share as a heart, but here it’s more of a background hum to the thick chewy molasses and burned toast that makes up the body of this beer.
There’s a soft creamy texture and a good crunchy autumnal leaf hopping, and the Earl Grey tea is rather subtle, sitting right at the back and providing a gentle smoky perfume to the round toffee finish.
