This is a rich, luxurious stout that’s gone full-on Willy Wonka.
A rich stout base with biscuity and dark fruit notes, with chocolate and cherry for traybake flavours, cola and marshmallow for a hint of Pick ‘n Mix and a big whack of lactose to make it all creamier than a Mr. Whippy.
That might sound like a big mess of flavours, but the end result is a smooth, complex, multi-layered brew with flavours melting away into something totally different and yet consistently delicious.
Each flavour is recognisable in its own right, but melds beautifully into the overall character of the beer. This is not meant to be a session beer. This is luxury in a bottle. This is Augustus Gloop level gluttony.
