GET OUT CLAUS
MEXICAN IMPERIAL CHOCOLATE STOUT
There's no escaping this bold full-bodied stout this Christmas. Delivering an all out Blitzen of flavour and sensory overload by the sackload. Coffee, chocolate and a little spice on the red nose. Dark chocolate mixes with mocha, vanilla and cinnamon, all layered over smooth malt roastiness. Finished off with a festive cloven-hoofed habanero drop-kick to the throat.

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, Crystal, Flaked Oats, Munich, Pale, Wheat
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!
