BrewDog vs Northern Monk - Tokyo Death
Black as a Samurai's robe and busier than Shibuya crossing. This inky stout is alive with flavour. An earthquake on the plate - Jasmine is off the Richter with sticky caramel, nuts and roasted barley in close pursuit. Mixed berries ride out this liquid Tsunami to complement and balance the malted profile.

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, Crystal, Flaked Oats, Pale, Roasted Barley, 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!
