Being a big version of Neck Oil that was brewed for a Beavertown Birthday celebration, Double Chin is a fabulous name.
It’s also a cracking beer with a rich white rum alcohol warmth permeating everything, amplifying everything, turning everything into bright splashes of solid colour.
There’s a soft and sexy salted caramel, honey and waffle, bagel and biscuit malt and a great big blast of pineapple juice and mango, peach and orange marmalade hops that also slap you about with dry and pithy hazel leaves and fresh garden herbs.
But it’s that boozy heat that’s really grabbing me.
It’s not a burn, it’s not overdone at all, it’s just a really lovely alcoholic warmth that makes Double Chin an absolute treat.
