Tsarina Esra pours dark black with a thin head and lots of lacing.
The smell is malt and woodsmoke, and to taste we get sweet plums, roasted malts and lots of bitterness from the hops in the finish.
Another brilliantly balanced beer from De Molen.
Try pairing it with the Irish classic of Boiled Bacon and Cabbage this St Patricks Day.
OK, so its not an Irish Stout – but we aren’t going let a small detail like that get in the way of a delicious food pairing.
