Pohjala Birthday Banger - Imperial Stout - 33cl fles
Imperial Stout brewed with mountains of chocolate, cacao nibs, tonic beans, and vanilla for a big birthday celebration. Taste: Sweet and sticky vanilla-marzipan frosting coats the tongue with a smooth and creamy feel of a chocolate milkshake immediately afterwards. Going back for a second slice - or sip - reveals jammy mixed red fruits and a sweet biscuity malt base, whilst a third sip transports you back to your 5th birthday party in the summer, running across the grass whilst shoving handfuls of your parent’s lovingly baked cake down you before it could melt in the sun.
