Big Drop Brewing Co. Stout

"With notes of coffee, cocoa nibs and a lingering hint of sweet vanilla this beer is dark, rich and indulgent. We keep ours in the fridge but take it out about an hour or so before we drink it as all that decadence needs a bit of warming up. We pour it fast into a tulip glass so the gorgeous coffee aromas can stretch their legs. If it’s early in the evening, an oyster or two sets it off nicely. If it’s later, a chocolate fondant rounds off this truly extravagant beer. This Stout is greatly accessible and Gluten-Free containing <10 PPM." Big Drop Brewing Co.

Drinking pints by an open fire in Edale

Aroma takes me back to days working on my uncle's farm, or drinking pints by an open fire in an Edale pub. Some may not like this country, earthy smell, but I found it immediately relaxing and reassuring. Body is a lovely, calory rich, workman's sort of pint. You may not need dinner as this just feels so hearty and filling.

Finally, Stout is back on the menu

A joy to taste stout again; a class of brew that has been missing from most pub for at least a decade. This brew has the rich creaminess of stout without the bitterness of Guinness. A mid brown colour similar to Beamish Red for those with a long memory, or Green King IPA. At the slightly sweeter end of the spectrum and not too heavy, it was a fine brew to accompany the steak dinner I was treated too.

A Robust Chocolate Stout

This is a fantastic stout. I think the only slight negative is that it's perhaps a little over-sweet, but don't let that put you off. This is a beer which needs to be accompanied by a roaring fire and good conversation. It takes me back to Christmases spent with family on the Suffolk coast, with my aunt drinking halves of stout in quiet village pubs.

With the addition of cocoa nibs, this stout is definitely chocolately, but it's not unpleasant or overpowering. And the aroma is earthy and malty - this is a proper hearty beer.

I'd say this is a beer to enjoy on its own - savour the flavour. I'm not sure you'd want too many in one evening, but it's definitely a drink to have available for cold nights.
