Details

Want to see how far a beer can be pushed? This is a beer made from the principal four ingredients plus the addition of cocoa nibs for that rich coffee hit, plus lactose for a sweetness. It’s then aged in bourbon barrels for 12 months to really enhance the flavour and add some more alcohol. A lot of love, time and money, has gone into this beer, and my does it show. There’s a wealth of flavours: orange, dark chocolate, coconut, coffee and vanilla, and it just keeps on growing. Siren declare it as one of the most complex they’ve made, and that’s saying something.

Brewery Info

Siren Craft Brew don’t do boring. Even among the core range, usually reserved for the more ‘commercial’ beers, includes a 6% breakfast stout, a red IPA and Calypso, a Berliner-style sour beer. (What a wonderful beery world we live in). But this is a brewery that doesn’t know how to stop – there’s a huge range of seasonal, experimental and collaborative beers, the best of which we’re lucky enough to stock.

Yet, underpinning the whole operation is the ethos that beer should be exciting and enjoyed in the same way as fine wines, yet balanced and drinkable. It has been a remarkable journey since founder Darron Anley started the brewery in 2012, and we can’t wait to see where it will go next.

Pours inky black with a medium brown creamy head that lasts well and leaves lots of residual and good lacing. Aroma is rum and coke, chocolate. Flavor is fairly sweet, light plus bitter, lots of rum and some underlying chocolate. Full body.

Complex flavours, most notably chocolate and ginger. A little on the subtle side, but a nice tasty drink.

Black color with a tan head, short duration and nice lacework. Aroma has strong chocolate notes, roasted malts and black ripe fruit. Flavor with a slightly bitterness, black chocolate, hints of bourbon. Flavor with a light sweetness, roasty, cremay and smoothy on palate. Nice one.

I have become a bit of a follower of Siren Craft and when I saw this was available I had to give it a try. I was not dissopointed. All of the elements that a good stout should have are here in abundance. A truly great brew.
Intensely tasty

Cracking beer, has the intensity of a good imperial stout. Oozes out of the bottle, black with off white head. Nice mix of flavours, not that malty or bitter. I enjoyed every sip of this one.I did wonder if it went a little too far initially, but it actually grew on me. Wish I'd ordered more than 1 bottle!
