BAD CO DAZED & CONFUSED Milk Stout

Even gloomy days are great for a nice beer outside.

Today’s tipple is a milk stout brewed in England and winner of the silver medal in the Dublin Craft Beer Cup 2016. What is a milk stout? The style only describes one thing, that there has been an addition of sweet and unfermentable lactose.

Colour: Deep brown/black. Medium fluffy brown head.Dazed&ConfusedMilk stout

Aroma: Roasted malt, soft coffee aroma, light hint of citrus and caramel.

Palate: Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Oily, liquorish texture, earthy chocolate, herbal bitterness with a long lasting sweetness.

This beer is a velvety experience totally recommended for condensed milk fans. It pairs perfectly with deserts and creamy cheese. 6/10

Cheers!

HARBOUR BREWING COMPANY Session IPA

Today’s beverage comes from North Cornwall an area with majestic landscapes and excellent water for brewing beer.

This brewery started up their business in 2012 and as stated on their webpage:

“We approach all our beer design in the same way, drawing on the vast gamete of styles and techniques used worldwide. We then use this as a foundation to build upon, but that doesn’t always mean straying too far from the original, more evolution than revolution.”.

Colour: Deep Gold. Medium foamy white head.

Aroma: Fresh tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, mandarin and a hint of peach peel.

Taste: A first explosion of tropical fruit aroma invites you to a cereal taste on the palate leading to a perfectly light balanced sweet bitterness.

This is definitely a well rounded session IPA perfect for summer. Easy to drink with a velvety character and a long lasting delicate hop bitterness.

Cheers
