Wylam Brewery Puffing Billy (5.5%)

puffing-billy“Smoked Black Bitter Bam A Lam,” to misquote the song that sprang to mind on reading the label to this beer.
Puffing Billy is rich and round and packed with molasses and treacle tart, chocolate, praline and pecans.
It’s got a crunchy red leaf litter hopping, some linseed and orange zest, aniseed and hedgerow greenery.
And it’s also got a warm charcoal burned toast fireside fug that wraps itself around you as you drink and makes you feel all warm and toasty.
The aroma is bonfire night chocolate bars and the beer sits a deep ruby red in your glass.
On a cold autumn evening this is very nice indeed.
