Winter conjures up all kinds of amazing imagery… hiding from the cold reality of the outdoors, nestled into a great big couch in front of the fireplace with a beer that warms you up from the inside out… With the winter solstice approaching, our flavour loving palates started drifting to the thought of winter warmers and the great tradition of European spiced ales. With the help of a local spice merchant we began the process of figuring out just how we could satisfy this craving… White pepper, ginger, all spice, pimento, cinnamon and more landed on our bench and our imaginations went wild trying to determine which of those would give us just the right balance of spice and what mix of hops and malt we would choose to bring it all together. In the end in was allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg that caught our fancy… With a mix of Belgian specialty malts, UK Sovereign and Challenger hops for gentle bitterness and a dash of dark muscovado sugar to deliver a warming molasses character, we have crafted an ale rich in flavour and complexity with plenty going on. In honour of the upcoming solstice we’ve called it ‘Day of the Long Shadow’ and suggest this beer is best savoured long into a cold winter night, sipped slowly while solving the elusive problems of the world. Christmas hints of allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg play with a yeast primed with dark muscovado sugar delivering ripe fruit, molasses and delicate spice. UK Sovereign and Challenger hops hops provide a gentle, lasting bitterness that carefully balance this deep red ale rich in flavour and complexity. Best savoured long into a cold winter night sipped slowly while solving those elusive problems of the world?chesterfield and fireplace optional.
