Left Handed Giant - Black Is Beautiful Imperial Stout 10.0% 440ml CanLeft Handed Giant Brewing Co.
Back in early July we announced that we would be taking part in Weathered Souls Brewing Co global initiative for a collaborative effort to raise awareness for the injustices people of colour face daily.
Black Is Beautiful is our take on the Imperial Stout recipe shared by Weathered Souls, with additions of toasted coconut, cacao and Tanzanian vanilla.
100% of the profits from this beer will be donated to SARI, a local Bristol charity who provide free of charge support for victims of hate crime and also diversity training and education in work places and schools throughout the southwest.
This is the first step in our ongoing commitment to become a positive force for change within our industry and to address the in-balance.
The flavour is dominated by heaps of toasted coconut and delicate dry notes of cocoa powder and a noticeable sweetness from the Tanzanian Vanilla which holds its own in the flavour profile. Creating an overall roasty decadence that is robust, yet elegant.
The finish is subtly dessert-like but with a delicate amount of bitterness, a result of the complex malt bill and addition of toasted coconut during fermentation. Both complementing the pallet just enough to create a complex balance that lets the individual adjuncts shine.
