Craft breweries like to add all manner of fruits, lollies and other adjuncts to beer but when it comes to classics, it’s hard to go past coffee and stout. All Day Breakfast Stout is a beer committed to that wonderful pairing by releasing a collaboration between Stockade Brewing and Innes Brewing, with the second of those a nomadic brewing company by longtime homebrewer turned pro-brewer, Michael Hodge.
The stout makes use of beans from The Stockade Barrel Room’s Marrickville neighbours at Black Market Coffee Roasters and immediately on cracking it you’re hit by rich caramel aromas, cocoa and a touch of redcurrant from that coffee. Joining the fray is a mix of roasted malt, dark chocolate and dry toasted notes which served as a reminder that when it comes to combinations, it’s hard to go past a classic.
