When I reviewed the last @counterculturebeer in May, I asked for something big and black to suit the end of July. And here we are in early August sitting watching the sunset at the back of the Blue Mountains with temperatures of 2 deg sipping on the next instalment, a delightful milk stout – It’d Be Rude Not Too. Billed as a French Toast Stout, it’s full of maple syrup and cinnamon. A great name and a great beer.
A huge thank you 🙏 once again to @stoneandwood for sending this delicious beer down for Tim and I to drink. The beer is out, so look for it in your local bottle shop or bar that serves good #indiebeer . It’d be rude not too.
Can. Pours the deepest of brown, with a big cappuccino head that retains well and sticks to the glass. The aroma opens up with cinnamon and maple syrup, along with milk chocolate and toasted malts. Flavour wise, there’s a beautiful mix of bitter dark chocolate and milk chocolate, with supporting acts of cinnamon, sweet maple syrup, vanilla and milk. It’s sweet, but never becomes too sweet, with an underlying dark roasted malt keeping it in balance. Lusciously rich and smooth, as it coats the mouth and begs for more.
3.9/5. Trent
