Winter is rapidly approaching, and with it comes more of a thirst for settling down for a cold evening with a pint (or several) of a roasty, toasty dark beer. So we thought it was about time for Black Mass to take its turn in having a bit of a makeover for our 20th birthday celebratory series!
Given that Black Mass is quite the heavyweight already at a devilish 6.66%, we’ve ramped up some of the flavour components but brought down the ABV to create a robust yet still eminently quaffable beer. All hail BABY BLACK MASS – a 4.8% espresso stout, brewed in just the same way as our original sultry dark ale but with hefty additions of freshly ground coffee and lactose for a full-bodied, extravagantly bitter-sweet tipple.
Following on his spectacular range of our anniversary year artwork, Carl Flint (http://www.carlflint.com/) has once again reimagined the original design to give this special beer it’s own identity whilst remaining in keeping with the history behind it.
On sale from November 21st so keep your eyes peeled for this popping up on bars round Sheffield and beyond soon!
Mine’s a pint!
