Weird Beard Opulence London 10.2 Vanilla Imperial Stout V,
Opulence, as it’s name clearly suggests, is an opulent beer. Take a whiff, and you get dark roasted coffee on the nose, some black treacle and a big hit of luxury Madagascan Vanilla. Sip the beer and find yourself sinking into its oaty smoothness. Otherwise a dry Stout, vanilla softens all the darker character and add sweetness without shattering the complexity of this beautiful beer.
Wild Weather Shellfish Basterd Berkshire 6 Cockle & Seaweed Stout TBC Dragged from the depths of the Wild Weather imagination, this cockle and seaweed oatmeal stout delivers a rich, creamy mouthfeel, a satisfying savory quality and a touch of sea salt. Collaboration with Bexar County.
