Our Eclipse stout has been some time in the making!
Dom Flynn, our Head Brewer, has taken inspiration from stouts new and old from several different countries in considering the concept for Eclipse.
The malt bill, including 11 different malts, is influenced by cereals from breakfast and American Stouts creating complexity and a smooth drink.
The roast flavours come from a more traditional Irish stout giving it depth of flavour and a strong nose.
The beer has the balance of being quaffable and rich at 4.1%, a great session stout that can be enjoyed all year round.
The beer presents dark, with a thick creamy head.
On the nose it is sweet, malty and rich chocolate.
It has a smooth, full-bodied mouthfeel and the flavours are chocolate, coffee and a hint of liquorice.
Eclipse 4.1% Stour is available now in 9G Cask as part of our permanent, core range of cask ales.
