White Hag Brewery The Dark Druid Chocolate Orange Pastry Stout
THE BREWERY SAYS:
The Dark Druid would cut the mistletoe that grew on the oak tree and give it as a blessing. Oaks were seen as sacred, and the winter fruit of the mistletoe was a symbol of like in the dark winter months.
This third iteration of White Hag’s pastry stout combines decadent milk chocolate with the tangy zest flavours of orange. This thick velvety stout is fermented with the sweet flavours of melted milk chocolate, as a base for the creamy yet delicate orange. The sweetness of lactose and the roast stout finish create a silky and rich mouthfeel, to balance out this luscious pastry stout.
