Three brews to celebrate International Stout Day
As we’re sure you’re fully aware, November 3rd is International Stout Day. With this in mind we swung by Beer Central to pay a visit to beer aficionado Sean Clarke who gave us the lowdown on three of the finest stouts in his store.
Siren Craft Brew – Barrel Aged Caribbean Chocolate Cake 330ML 7.4% ABV
This beast of a beer does exactly what is says on the bottle! Siren are based in Berkshire and have brewed this in collaboration with Cigar City Brewing from Florida. A rich, tropical Chocolate Stout brewed with Cacao Nibs, Cypress Wood and Lactose and then aged in Bourbon Barrels for 12 months; it’s a beautiful flavour that oozes decadence.
Acorn Brewery – Gorlovka 500ML 6% ABV
Brewed locally by Acorn Brewery near Barnsley, Gorlovka is a multi-award winning Russian Imperial Stout. Roasted malt makes this is a full bodied stout with liquorice and dark fruit flavours. Perfect for those cold autumn nights and named after Barnsley’s twin town out in the Ukraine!
The Kernel Brewery – 1856 Imperial Brown Stout 330ML 10.2%
This really is magnificent! Brewed in South East London by one of the UK’s leading craft breweries, this Imperial Brown Stout uses a heritage recipe from 1856. It’s round and smooth, creamy cocoa and chocolate flavours, leads to dried fruits with hints of lightly roasted coffee. Did we say it was magnificent? It really is.
Be sure to grab yours from the Beer Central store at The Moor Market. Opening times: 8.30am-5.30pm, Monday to Saturday.
