It’s here! The long awaited Bonfire Stout, fresh from the brewery in Wales and delivered by Wise Bartender. Let’s see if Drop Bear’s latest offering is as good as their last. Long story short: yes. Yes it is.
Living up to its name, “bonfire” the aroma provides a smokey essence a long with a faint hint of chocolate a long with the usual aromas of a proper stout.
On my first tasing of this I was overwhelmed with just how much flavour there is in this drink, that I had to pop the cap off another so I could properly review it. It’s just too damn delicious! There is no compromise on flavour, providing a typical, strong stout flavour which I would dare say competes with the likes of the alcoholic stout titan, Guinness, only this cold weather treat provides a nice, smokey surprise on the after taste through the help of the smoked malt.
Drop Bear have truly captured the essence of a stout with this offering, dropping the alcohol, not the flavour. This has instantly become a regular for my monthly orders and I can’t wait to get another open.
