so today I’m taking a look at the darker side with an oatmeal stout from Peerless brewery who are based just over the water from myself in Liverpool. it comes in a standard 550ML bottle and has an APV of 5%. in the glass the beer was jet black int he glass with a small white head, looked very much like a glass of coke. a lovely aroma of chocolate, malt and coffee, wonderfully inviting. the taste is just as wonderful presenting with a robust and layered malt, an absolute delight to drink. this is very robust and may not travel as well into the second pint but for the first its divine to drink. reminds me why I love stouts and is available in your local Coop if you that way inclined, I recommend you do.
