Lactose, peanut butter, cocoa nibs, vanilla, pastries, berries, chilli, coffee, chocolate... the list goes on. In today’s beer world, there's a whole array of adjuncts used in a wide variety of beer styles but sometimes you just want a good old fashioned beer. And that's what Mismatch have created here: a stout that's straight up solid and drinkable and brewed using just water, hops, yeast and malt.
There's a flicker of red within this deeply black Traditional Stout that kicks off with sweet cream, milk chocolate, a touch of coffee and roast all combined in the aroma. The chocolate turns more to the dark side upon sipping, where coffee chimes in to add solid espresso richness and smooth rounded edges to this full-bodied beer in which roasted flavours herald a good bitterness amid some fleeting creamy sweetness. In short, it’s a stout: crack, pour, drink and repeat.
