Brain’s Santa’s Beard [Advent Booze Calendar: 13 Days Till Xmas]   2 comments

brains santa's beard

Cooking some venison goulash and drinking a Welsh stout from Brains.  Merry Christmas to me.

Overall: I thought it referred to Mrs. Claus, but after having one I think it is ostensibly a stout trying to come out of the closet a porter.  Still, the best beer so far this advent (the ginger beer being another sort of beverage altogether).

Colour: Black as coalpits.

Aroma: Cardiff Bay: brackish with a lot of decay but occasional fresh notes as if the sea is just over yonder (no, farther than that).

Mouth: Full bodied and sumptuous, sweet and creamy.

Flavour:  Chocolate and walnut shell, a bit of espresso bean and brown sugar.  Absolutely awesome.

Yesterday’s entry here.
