Details

William Bros started off as a home brew shop in Glasgow and were ticking along quite happily until 1988 when one day a lady wandered in with a recipe. The recipe was in Gaelic for leann fraoch (heather ale) and had been handed down through the generations, but she didn't know how to brew it.  The two got together and after a period of experimentation the first William Bros beer was born!

The coffee, dark chocolate and liquorice flavours are joined by zesty orange peel in this rich, warming stout from Williams Bros. Brewed with oats and wheat in addition to dark roasted malts, March of the Penguins is smooth and creamy with a dry, slightly bitter finish.

Quite rich, without overpowering coffee notes which are too prominent in some dark beers. Perfect balance, nice finish. One of the best!
