Temple launch their first stout

Fri 10-08-12, 12:00pm


If you are in the Brunswick East area this Friday pop into Temple to have a taste of their first ever stout.

It’s a 5.9% oatmeal stout and has been brewed as something of a going away present for Temple’s departing brewer Dave Macgill.

Described by the brewery as: “Jet black in colour with a thick, creamy mocha-like head, Temple Oatmeal Stout displays a luscious aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate, while a light sweetness from crystal malts hints at a coffee and cream impression.

“The use of both malted and unmalted oats lends a nutty, grainy earthy flavour that is complimented by traditional English East Kent Goldings and Northdown hops.”

Knowing them, there will be some tasty matched nibbles being knocked up in the kitchen too.

As for Dave’s departure, he’s heading back to the Apple Isle and, knowing he’s a stout lover, Temple decided to send him off in style. Taking up his reins is Craig Westwood, with brewery assistant Anders Norman at his side.
