STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING IMPERIAL STOUT
Our Equity Punks have been unleashed and have done it again. This year's Beatnik beer is a belt-loosening belter. A six malt thriller straight from the dessert counter. This sticky toffee pudding imperial stout rolls in at 9.0% ABV thanks to six malts and three different additions of sugar. Rich and warming for days, this fireside after-dinner treat is smooth, sticky and with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and syrupy toffee. Every year our Equity Punks design and brew a beer as part of the Beatnik Brewing Collective. Every year the result is as intrepid and diverse as they are.
Brewed by Punks, for Punks. Every time. This is autocratic for the people.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Brown, Carafa, Chocolate Wheat, Pale, Medium Crystal, Extra Dark Crystal
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
