Brewed in collaboration with Left Handed Giant, Escape Pod is a Chocolate, Coconut, Vanilla Stout.
Yes, you read right.
It’s an enormous fun packed fairground ride of a beer.
A beer to make you giddy.
A beer to make your head spin and your tongue twist in the most delightful way.
Escape Pod smells of coconut ice cream and pours an impenetrable black with a little cappuccino head.
There’s a hefty treacle tart, Madeira cake and runny honey malt, round and chewy and satisfyingly sexy, and a a snap of green and pithy fresh herbal hops that add some brightness to the edges.
But it’s the creamy coconut, the dark bitter chocolate and the rich vanilla that slowly builds as you drink, bolstered by a white rum alcohol warmth that makes this a very special beer.
