Day 5 – #12beersofxmas
Brewery – Fool Hardy Ales
Location – Stockport, Greater Manchester (historically Cheshire)
The Drink: Rogue Santa
ABV: 5.0% – 500ml
Opened to a very loud and vigorous gush with a bit of mopping up required. This Limited Edition stout had a BBE of June 2014 poured a deep, dark brown with a good, tan head. Strong carbonation subsided into thick mouth feel and a smooth gulp.
The surprising aromas were of mint-orange-chocolate, the taste more of mint-chocolate, small hints of malts and roasts coming through. Definitely the right choice of beer this time given the season and the weather and I’m a big fan of the bottle artwork.
Enjoy Your Christmas Eve…
