After winning our on-line vote earlier in the Autumn, our Christmas special is finally here. This 5.4% stout has been brewed with 8 different malt varieties for a rich and complex body. We used real dark chocolate, cocoa powder and lactose sugar for a sweet, luxurious chocolate flavour. Late in the boil we added the zest of 100 limes for a citrus aroma and character, as well as a late hop addition of Nelson Sauvin, Kohatu and Motueka. Inspired by the classic boiled sweet, the beer has a light citrus aroma which gives way to a smooth and moreish chocolate flavour with the limes lingering in the finish.
Chocolate Lime Stout is available in keg and cask now, and is the perfect luxury beer to enjoy in the run up to Christmas. Grab a glass and let us know what you think.
