Brewdog's first small-batch canned release of 2017 is hot off the press and looks an absolute picture thanks to the amazing custom can artwork from the incredible guys at The Red Dress. They wanted to produce something of true decadence, so have packed into the recipe everything that they could think of to raise the body and make a smooth, truly redolent deep stout. The four key additions exaggerate the mouthfeel and work with the blend of malts, oats and wheat to leave you with a beer that is best enjoyed on those dark, early-spring evenings when the weather is yet to break and the cold still seeps in around the door jambs. The result? In a word, opulence. The aromas start with cocoa and vanilla but it is the flavour that really holds the key to our latest small-batch release. Chocolate milkshake, roasty espresso and mellow vanilla blend into one in a smooth, full-bodied beer that is rich, deep and rewarding.

Honourably named after New Zealand's national style of barista coffee. A title that has been wrestled away from freeze dried instant coffee and made our country one of the best coffee nations in the world. In our own humble opinion.... Brewed with coffee, vanilla beans and lactose.
By Udder Means
To Ol wanted to make a stout that had a thick mouthfeel but mainatined a low alcohol percentage. They obtained this by adding a solid amount of lactose in the beer. The yeast strain used is not capable of fermenting lactose, so when the beer stops fermenting all lactose still remains in the beer. The result is a thick mouth feel without being an overly sweet or overly strong stout.
