I’m thinking that Five-Oh are probably Manchester’s smallest commercial brewer at the moment, who knows, I certainly don’t, what I do know is Jamie knows his beers as well as his music.

To experience both, head to the tasting rooms in the cellar The Beermoth on a Friday/Saturday afternoon.  As an aside I do wonder if they are slightly quieter now they opened the wonderful Cafe Beermoth?


The bottle opens with audible fizz and pours giving a strong tan head that retains for the entire glass emptying fun.

Pitch blank in colour, the aromas are hoppy, malty and roasted.

The carbonation dances around the mouth, especially on the tip on the tongue.

The taste is roasted coffee and bitter chocolate and considering it is early and I’ve still not showered it went down very quickly.  Lovely drink.

Does it Djent? Again I don’t know but my burps from drinking this certainly do.


Thanks for reading.


Have a fun Night(mare) Before Christmas.*
