Monteith’s Brewing Co – Black Beer
Brewery : Monteith’s Brewing Co
Name : Black beer
Country : New Zealand
Style : Stouts
ABV/VOL/ALC : 5.2%
Note from brewery :
Crafted from a blend of five premium malts to create a complex depth of flavours with dominant coffee notes. Crisper than sweet darks and smoother than harsh stouts. Perfect for the moment when you step in from the cold.
Note from the taster :
When I first saw it I was a bit worried that it would taste to strongly like a porter with to much of a taste of coffee, a taste that I’m not to keen on.
When I got offered it by friend I couldn’t say no. A very pleasantly sweet taste of the caramel hit me first with a chocolate after taste. The coffee taste just about there, not strong at all. This drink was very enjoyable with a slice of dark 85% chocolate. Yet another good beer from Monteith’s Brewing Co.
Nice simple label with Gothic font for the beer name, I like the cut corner which makes it not just another square label.
