Charnwood Brewery Black Fox (4.5%)

Black FoxThe Charnwood Brewery are quietly going about the business of making eminently drinkable beer.
Nothing mind numbing, nothing earth shattering, but really good straightforward beer that you can happily spend an evening with.
Take Black Fox for example.
It’s a Stout.
A Stout that does everything you want.
It’s thick and creamy, pouring a deep purple brown with a little frothy head and smelling of chocolate coated plums.
Taking a swig you find black coffee, treacle tart, burned toast, coal dust and honey.
There’s some brittle autumnal leaf litter hops and a splash of orange juice along with fresh rolling tobacco from the hops, and all of this combines to make a beer to spend the end of an evening with, it’s comforting, friendly, very good indeed.
