Until very recently I’d not even heard of a Braggot.
A few days ago I had one and didn’t like it at all.
It was far too sugary sweet.
But this one, brewed by the Beery Wizard that is Ian BrewChap, is something very good indeed.
For those of your who don’t know, a Braggot is a kind of halfway house between a beer and a Mead, brewed with honey and cereal malts it gives you all the boozy sweetness of a hefty Mead with the caramel biscuit, brown bread and Belgian Waffle of a decent beer base.
The addition here of Coriander adds a crunchy spice edge that brings some much needed bitter warmth to what otherwise might get overly sugary.
I couldn’t drink it all the time, but now and again, if made this well, I’d be happy to get my Braggot on.
