Just as summer ales quench your thirst on a hot day, dark ales warm you up from the inside out. They’re the perfect brew to lead us through these long nights and short days as we head into the heart of winter, so in this mixed 4-pack we’ve bundled up our favourites for you!
But before you dive into a thick-headed snifter of stout, here’s a Quick Guide to Dark Beer.
Dainton Hoppy Stout, 355ml Can, ABV 5.5%
Being a hop forward stout, you won’t feel like you’ve just eaten a big desert. This beer has a solid carbonation and a generous dose of hops to lift it up.
Balter Handsome Elvis Nitro Milk Stout, 375ml Can, ABV 6.5%
Smooth back your sideburns and zip up your jumpsuit, this sweet and velvety milk stout is ready to put on a show. A cascading curtain of nitro bubbles rise to set the stage for a hip-swivelling concert of hazelnut, espresso, chocolate and berry, finished with a Kung-Fu kick of bitterness and ultra-creamy mouthfeel. Shake up the night (and this can) Handsome Elvis is here to play.
Killer Sprocket American Stout, 375ml Can, ABV 5.8%
Dark and dry, Killer Sprocket Stout pours jet black with a tan head and aromas of toffee and brown sugar. On the palate you get flavours of espresso coffee and chocolate with a hint of burnt toffee ending with a resinous hop kick.
Dad & Dave’s Oak & Whiskey Porter, 375ml Can, ABV 6%
A smooth velvety porter rich in chocolate and caramel notes. Fermented on fresh French oak and a touch of whiskey to promote subtle flavours and aromas of vanilla.
