In a nutshell: A big, generously flavoured Stout from Berkshire's Siren Craft Brew.
The lowdown: This big flavoured Stout is an extravagant variation on their Caribbean Chocolate Cake, brewed in collaboration with Florida's Cigar City Brewing. Here they've layered sweet and sticky maple notes with a generous helping of cacao and a dusting of spices on top of the already rich flavours. Real indulgence in a glass.
Among the forefront the modern generation of brewers Siren Craft Brew have been building an enviable reputation since 2012 at their brewery in Finchampstead, near Wokingham, in Berkshire.
In addition to their core range they also have a steady stream of seasonal, special releases and special project beers in production.
Part of their philosophy is that they "believe all beer drinkers should be able to enjoy craft beer as wine drinkers enjoy the finest wines" and, as a wine and craft beer specialist, it's something with which we wholeheartedly agree.
