Batch Brewing Co Blueberry Cheesecake & Little Lou’s Crème Brûlée

Nitro Sour & Pastry Stout
7.2% & 8.0%

Like the grandparent who spoils the kids with sweets whenever they want, Batch are slinging dessert beers for before and after dinner.

After winning hearts at Batch’s Sourfest event, Blueberry Cheesecake returned in winter 2021. Shining the bloody stain of smashed blueberries with a lavender purple foam, Blueberry Cheesecake is a cheeky little brat, and surprisingly drinkable for a 7.2 percent ABV dessert sour. It’s luxurious but surprisingly balanced with a creamy nitro head, sweet jammy aroma and smooth sourness.

While we can’t keep up with them all, Batch has been putting out a string of pastry stouts recently. This means Little Lou’s Crème Brûlée Pastry Stout stands on the shoulders of tasty, tasty giants. A layered malt bill topped off with lactose, cacao nibs and crème brûlée extract* has produced a rich brew dripping with that caramelised character you can only get by using a blowtorch in the kitchen. Sweet white chocolate early on and bitter chocolate on the finish round out a dessert that is decadent all the way through without ever being overwhelming.

*Don’t ask me what crème brûlée extract is. I have images of a mad scientist flinging crème brûlées into a vat and boiling them, then capturing their distilled essence in dainty glass paraphernalia.
