After reading about Brew Dog's 2.7% dark mild on Stonch's blog recently it was with a degree of excitement that I learned of this brew's imminent arrival on the Star's beer festival bar this week. Edge, to quote the guru, 'astonishes with it's richness and complexity ... and from a beer that barely registers on the alcoholic Richter scale. There are strong espresso notes bundled in with a whole bag of fruit and a surprisingly full body.'
It has to be said that I would have preferred to sample one of the brewery's sh*t-kicking IPAs or even get another chance to enjoy last year's superb Hype but this does sound like an interesting beer to say the least and not one that will hang around for very long either. The Star opens it's festival doors at 5pm Wednesday (19th).
