Some love it some hate it, black beer, or stout as it's known is famously one of those Marmite kind of things. I decided to brew up some for Christmas and here it is boiling away, looks like a pint of Guinness already! This one is going to be rich and flavorsome (hopefully!), it has all manner of roasted barley and oats in it and a grab-handful of American hops, plus a smidgen of honey, brown sugar and lactose for sweetness and body. The downside is that it won't be ready for 6 weeks.
Demands the patience of a Monk this brewing lark. :(
