A coffee, digestif or combination of the two are popular choices for after-dinner tipple, yet thanks to a myriad of styles and flavours, craft beer can also provide a fitting finale to any meal and a perfect accompaniment for the cold winter nights. HonestBrew’s Brody Rossiter has selected five beers to savour long into the evening.
Magic Rock – Common Grounds Coffee Porter
The perfect beer for coffee lovers. Brewed in collaboration with Dark Woods coffee, this rich and roasty porter is overflowing with nutty chocolate, dark berry and complex coffee notes thanks to the addition of seven different types of coffee and malt throughout the brewing process.
Boundary & HonestBrew – Of The Hills Honey & Tea Porter
HonestBrew journeyed to Northern Ireland to brew a warming seasonal brew with Boundary Brewing. The result was a porter packed with rich and vibrant flavours of Assam Black tea and honey procured from a local Antrim farm who strive to preserve the art of beekeeping in the hills surrounding Belfast city.
Dark Star – Creme Brulee Milk Stout
Skip dessert, put the blowtorch away, and crack open a can of this creme brulee milk stout from Dark Star. The addition of lactose sugar, vanilla beans and loads of roasted malt has resulted in a pleasantly sweet and smooth brew that serves up sweet toffee and caramel notes.
Beavertown – Tempus Project: Uptown Monk Rye Tripel
Tottenham’s Beavertown are well known for their colourful cans packed with delicious hop-forward beers. However, their Tempus project also offers an unmissable selection of barrel-aged brews. Discover the wild(er) side of beavertown with this decadent tripel packed with flavours of sweet-malt, figs and a touch of honey.
Beers Buxton Buxton v Omnipollo – Rocky Road Porter
Imperial stouts are richer, boozier, and ultimately, more debauched equivalents of the classic style. Sometimes named pastry stouts, the style is no stranger to bold flavours and luxurious flavours. This collaboration between Buxton Brewery and Sweden’s Omnipollo is an imperial peanut oatmeal porter brewed with marshmallows, cocoa nibs and lactose sugar.
