The Mill Brewery Skeleton Crew

Style
Oyster Stout
ABV
7.0%

Skeleton Crew is a beer that really captures the ethos of The Mill Brewery. For one, the can’s artwork - by Dave Long - taps into the Melbourne brewery’s longtime love of classic arcade games and metal music. But secondly, it shows off the brewery’s knack for making balanced dark beers with the oyster stout combining traditional and rich English stout flavours with a refreshing and light finish.

The base beer uses a mix of English malts and the classic hop Fuggles with oysters, ocean water and sea salt all added. It means Skeleton Crew starts off with a rich mix of dark chocolate, coffee beans, licorice and roasted and toasted notes, while the oceanic combination brings out unmistakably briny, minerally and savoury elements. It all makes for a beer that would be perfect to pair with, well, hopefully we don't need to tell you what shellfish you should be buying.

If you're looking for a different kind of dark beer, the brewery's also recently released the Mexican Chilli stout, Feathered Serpent - you can grab it here.
