You'll always find a special release or two on tap at the Lord Nelson whenever you pass through, but occasionally you get an extra special special release. Brewer Damon decided to hold back a keg of last year's Annileation, the brewery's annual Irish style stout complete with "mocha notes on the palate and a creamy texture". The new release has been pouring for a little while now and is due to be joined by the aged version very soon. According to the brewery it's brought a "mellow softness to the rich mocha palate, a deep colour to the head" and delivers "a finer bead". Look out too for the Broadside, the Lord Nelson's take on a Belgium strong ale in style, complete with "layers of toasty caramel malts and chocolate notes on the finish". Goes great with the prime Hereford rib eye in the Brasserie, apparently.
