Newlands’ most notable contribution to Metropolitan culture, Baylands have attempted the ambitious double of a Chocolate Stout that is at the same time a Rye beer. How would it stand up to legends of both varieties? Only the haiku would tell!
Baylands Knight Ryder Choc Stout (5.7% ABV)
Stout – checkin’ it twice
Dark chocolate and hazelnuts
Tuft of hairy thar
Food match: Christmas mince pies, rare char-grilled steak
It’s the kind of beer you drink when: It was left out for you on Christmas Eve.
To our tens of fans, the Thirstyboys we hope you had a joyous festive season and a messy New Year.
