Day 6 – #12BeersofXmas 2016
Brewery – Beer Nouveau
Location – Greater Manchester, Lancashire via Peterborough, Cambridgeshire (historically Northamptonshire).
The Drink: Big DIPA
ABV: 10.9% – 330ml
Style: Double IPA – Barley Wine Hybrid
Galena & Challenger hops; Maris Otter, Lager, Wheat and Crystal malts. 35 IBU, suitable for vegans.
Pouring a lovely deep orangey-red with a quickly dissipating clear white head. The aroma is smokey, boozy, hoppy and burnt sugars.
Light on the tongue with very little aftertaste, this is a very, very dangerous high ABV beer whose taste gives you no warnings whatsoever. The taste is light citrus, smoke and hoppy.
I personally can’t get passed the colour though, it just looks fantastic.
I think all of this beer was bottled but what you do need to do is get down to their brewey tap. Unit 75 on North Western Street/Temperance Street, you’ll be greeted by a fine range of cask and keg beers plus generally a beer served from the wood. Wines and ciders are also available and Meads too. Plus snacks the fire to keep you warm, that is if you don’t work up enough of a sweat playing the Wii games.
Merry Christmas to all and thank you to Steve.

Thanks for reading.
