LEFT HANDED GIANT
Double Chocolate Orange Stout
Left Handed Giant, a fast and growing young brewery in Bristol, have brewed a whopping double chocolate orange stout, with cocao nibs and lactose for a creamy chocolate flavour, with added orange zest and orange oil for a tangy twist.
Thinking of a Terry's Chocolate Orange ? It's right here in liquid form.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
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
Carafa, Chocolate, Crystal, Marris Otter
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!
