It was brewed using a combination of Terra Rossa cocoa, Callebaut cacao nibs, Madagascan vanilla and Kenyan Karimuki AA coffee from Workshop, before being blended with a portion of stout that had spent two years ageing in select bourbon barrels. We’re getting affogato, brownies and donut shops on the nose followed by flavours of bourbon, cranberry, crème brulee, cinder toffee and heather honey. It might be their most opulent stout yet.

Be quick!! Its still pouring at both our bars in York but not for long.
Since the inaugural successful launch at Hop City in 2017, Putty has been an annual release in January, they've stuck to the original recipe for this Double IPA. It features a malt base of Golden Promise, a higher-than-normal proportion of wheat malt, along with generous amounts of oats and flaked wheat to provide a well-rounded flavor. The water profile is delicately soft, with substantial whirlpool additions of Galaxy, Mosaic, and Azacca hops. This is followed by an extensive dry hop, with equal parts Mosaic/Galaxy and slightly less Azacca. We recommend leaving the beer for a few weeks to allow for the greeness / hop burn to fade, or buy two, one for now and one for later. There is limited supply on this as ever, we are launching it online Thursday when the lorry arrives for delivery to you Friday. Alternatively you can buy it from our York store on Friday or on tap in our pubs.

Here is their main front runner: An original Franconian beer specialty. Unfortified, i.e. with little carbon dioxide, and naturally cloudy with yeast. The taste is harmonious and bitter with hops.
Eichhorn Black Eagle
The “Schwarzer Adler” is a bottom-fermented dark full beer with an alcohol content of 6.0% vol.
The variously selected roasted malts give our dark a deep brown color with a rich, malty aroma that is sometimes reminiscent of the delicate sweetness of dark chocolate.
In addition to an easily noticeable hop note in the finish and the cream-colored, compact foam, the “Schwarzer Adler” is characterized as a particularly tasty beer specialty.
