White Russian Imperial Stout – ABV 9%

A distinctly different variant of Partizan’s excellent Stout, amped up to 9% and with honey, cocoa nibs and coffee, for a creamy mouthfeel and warm, boozy buzz.

Look: Just like the regular version, it pours black-brown with a frothy tan-brown head.

Aroma: The new variant of the Stout has sweet lactose sugars, chocolate and espresso – exactly like a White Russian cocktail.

Taste: Sweetness the honey alongside roasted chocolate malt and coffee – plus a bit of extra warmth the higher ABV.

Verdict: It’s only when you sip the White Russian that the beer truly reveals itself as a full-on Dessert Stout. It’s sweet, creamy and delicious.

Stout – ABV 7.0%

Very dark, coffee, stewed fruits, dark chocolate. Big roast and acidity, very rich. It’s sexier than velvet.

Tropical Rubicon Courage – ABV 8.0%

A double IPA with Citra, Amarillo and Sorachi Ace with notes of Piña Colada.

Dual Runnings Quadrupel – ABV 12%

Collaboration with Kernel, brewed and bottled in 2015. This is a brilliantly balanced Quad with flavours of caramel and toffee.

Look: Pours light brown with a nice white head.

Aroma: Peaches, caramel and a hint of coffee.

Taste: Big flavours and toffee and dried fruit with a big boozy kick the 12% ABV.

Verdict: Two years is a long time to wait for a beer, but we think you’ll agree the results are worth it.

Stout – ABV 7.4%

Surprisingly refreshing and amazingly full-bodied for a 7 percenter, with big warming roasted malts, stewed fruits and red berries, dark chocolate and toffee.

Look: The beer pours jet black in the glass, with lots of lacing and medium carbonation.

Aroma: Intense aromas of roasted malts and cereals, chocolate and hops invite you to dive in.

Taste: A lovely rich roasted flavour with red berries and good bitterness the hops to make this a very refreshing beer.

Food Pairing: Roasted malts work brilliantly with chocolate. Try it with a warm chocolate pudding for a sticky sweet and dark treat.

Double Citra IPA – ABV 8.2%

Juicy tropical notes the bold and juicy Citra hops – then doubled. This DIPA has an earthy backbone punctuated with spice and a sweet rich maltiness.

Look: Pours a golden, hazy light brown with a small white head with a nice level of carbonation slow-dancing up the glass

Aroma: Pineapple, passionfruit and caramel with those sharp bold Citra hops

Taste: Adding to the citrus you get mango, lime, pine and gooseberry with a slight sweetness and a little more malt than you’d usually expect with these juicy flavours.

Verdict: Refreshing and dangerously drinkable for such a strong malty, sugary beer. This is a big beer with a juicy charcter. To quote Simon Martin Real Ale Craft Beer YouTube: “Boom”.

Food Pairing: This beer works well with the tangs of South East Asia. Try it with a Thai red curry for a spicy, herby flavour festival.
