One of the most endearing outcomes of this pandemic lockdown has been the remarkable ability of locals to help out locals, as they stand together in their respective neighbourhoods keeping an eye out for each other. Case in point: Six Strings and Distillery Botanica have a relationship that goes back to 2013, when the brewery poured their beers at the launch of Mr Black, a cold press liqueur featuring single origin arabica beans from Ethiopia, Brazil and Papua New Guinea, coupled with Australian wheat vodka. And now they're back in cahoots with a collab release.
Mr Black Coffee Milk Stout opens up like a freshly unwrapped Wonka Bar, with a lovely creamy milk chocolate aroma, suggesting instantly you're onto a winner. The sweet milk stout is coupled with a subtle, yet smooth, coffee hit which provides the bitterness from the cold brewed Mr Black coffee.
My advice: drink this rich, lush, roasty mouthful of a stout in front of a roaring log fire, while yelling: “Good day, sir!” as each velvety sip warms the cockles of your heart.
