Our exploration of British beers continues with Twelve Days from the Hook Norton Brewery in Oxfordshire.
This is one of those absurdly dark brews that I am a sucker for, so the tasting notes come easy: dark, deep and rich, tar, creosote, coffee grounds, a bar of 80% dark chocolate, a river of pitch, well roasted hazelnuts, burnt pizza crust...
You get the idea.
It’s not quite as sticky as some, to be honest, but all the right notes are there. Very lovely. More please.
