My plan was to hand out my first bottles of Christmas Stout to friends at a Christmas lunch yesterday. That meant some frantic early morning label making and some far too early-in-the-day beer tasting.
I didn’t want to risk handing it out with no idea of what it tasted like. Fortunately it is good. I was chuffed. The orange and cardamom was pretty subtle (or totally undetectable!) but the overall effect is like drinking a Christmas pudding. Rich but not too sweet. Would go very nicely with some blue cheese on Boxing Day.
Hope you enjoy it.
