Great head which was a nice nice mid brown and lasted right through,and a nice dark stout. Tasted a tad like bottled Guiness but not so bitter. Will be doing this one again for sure.
1 Wilko Dark Velvet Stout.
500 grm beer enhancer
500 grm Dk Dried Malt
Approx 1/4 tin black treacle
8 grms Goldings hops steeped in caffatiere for 15 mins and added to mix
100 grms Demerera sugar
Brewed short to 19 litres
Tea bag of willamette hops added for 5 days before racking
Came out at around 4.40% or thereabouts.
This is mellowing out quite nicely now.
Trying to hold back a good few and see how it matures
