Take one of the brewers that one of my Golden Pints for this year’s best overseas brewers, mix in a bit of cherry, a bit of coffee and reference one of my favourite films of all time and what am I not going to like about this beer.
It opens with a psssttt and pours a silky brown leaving an off-cream, well retained head. Smelling and tasting of coffee, cherry and a good hint of malts and hops this is exactly how adjuncts should work with a beer – to complement and enhance the style and Dead by Dawn does it in spades.
Its one of those beers when a 500mL bottle would be more welcome, exceedingly sessionable despite the strengh, at its core is a damn fine stout, with the additional flavourings sending it even higher in my estimations.
Now I’m repeating myself but the beer is well worth repeating.
This is also a day late so apologies.
