25 June 2013: Something special for the national Chilli Eating Championship, Liberty has produced a superior Chilli Chocolate Stout which earned near unanimous acclamation from Les gars de soif (Thirstyboys in French). Herewith, the haiku…
Liberty Bhuty Chocolate Stout (7% ABV)
After the tempest
Deep chocolate love burns so good*
A whiff of brimstone
Food match: Chilli (obviously), Cheese and pineapple(?) on toast, prawns with lime infused oil, 70% chocolate.
It’s the kind of beer you have when: you need fortification for the storm.
