Booze: Playing roulette with the Williams Brothers
Williams Brothers is a brewery based in Alloa, Scotland. I first had Joker IPA a couple of years ago and loved it. They’ve become one of my favourite U.K. breweries and I get excited whenever I see one of their beers in a pub or shop.
Tonight, I am playing roulette with The Williams Brothers; will red win, or will black?
Style: Red Ale
A nice autumnal red with a head that fades rather quickly.
Sweet red berries, caramel and hops. Very sweet in fact.
A strong but sweet malty backbone with some hops and red berries.
Light carbonation with a short, dry finish.
Style: Stout (or in their words, a Rich Dark Ale)
Black as night. Think power cut darkness. Opaque blackness. Solid head that gives way after a bit.
Roasted malts, some coffee and a little nuttiness.
Sweet, strong, milky coffee with some milk chocolate.
Very creamy with a prickly carbonated feel.
Nate Dawg’s Verdict – RED or BLACK?
For me, this was an easy win for BLACK don’t get me wrong, I loved RED but BLACK really wowed me! It had everything I like in a stout... it was creamy and not overpowering in any way. The flavours were beautifully balanced!
