A Pair Of Beauties From Twisted Barrel

Dankobah (8%)
Brewed in collaboration with Mashionistas, this is a damned fine DIPA.
It pours all hazy and smells of tinned peach halves, its little frothy head fizzing with fun.
There’s a superbly soft and creamy caramel and pancake, toffee brioche malt body that creates a smooth brown sugar glazed body, eh8le the London Ale III yeast brings its own lightly psiced apricot jam to the party.
Over this goodness the gang of hops that is Amarillo, Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe give you a punch to the throat that’s finely balanced between lemon sherbet fizzy sweetness, lime leaves and candied orange, and woody tobacco, woodland undergrowth and fuzzy fresh peaches.
Yup, as I said, this is a damned fine DIPA.

Cherry Pies Ought To Be You (7%)
Take a superbly made Porter, a Porter with a coffee and treacle tart, honeyed doughnut and walnut bread malt body.
A Porter whose malt bill also creates a warm woody feeling while its yeast adds a round and spicy stone fruit and aniseed background hum.
To this Porter add a single hop, namely Magnum, with its flashes of lemon zest and orange marmalade, and smack of herbal greenery.
Got it?
That’s a good Porter, right?
So now add sweet cherries to the mix, sit back and relax into what is an absolutely delightful Porter.
The cherry concentrate is meaty and juicy, dark and sexy.
This is how to improve on an already superbly made Porter.
