Brewery: Ballistic Beer Co.
Style: Black Forest Stout
Size: 375ml bottle
Origin: Salisbury, QLD
Like the tiered gateau we all have in mind now, this stout has layers – a complex grain bill sets up the velvety feel like folds of chocolate cake batter; the chocolate, vanilla and lactose additions make it richer than Solomon, and provide the equivalent of creamy dark chocolate ganache coating the outside of the cake; and, finally, the cherries have brought a liqueur-esque resonance that cuts through all and brings a pleasant blush to your cheeks.
Happy birthday, Ballistic. Have fun stuffing your face with cake.
Must be at least 18 years old & over to purchase.
