WINNER: 2017 BRONZE MEDAL | Brewers Guild NZ
Deep brown with a tight crema-like head, Rawene oozes smoothness and complexity. Initial chocolate malt aroma gives way to a delicate blend of esters, with notes of vanilla pod and subtle coconut sweetness. Body is voluptuous, with hop flavour and bitterness restrained to ensure drinkability. Liberal use of both flaked oats and barley provide a velvety mid-palate underling a cacao-like blend of chocolate and roast malts, laced with subtle, warming alcohol. The finish is a lingering blend of Coconut, Vanilla, and Chocolate; inviting just one more sip.
Herb and Spice beer – Oatmeal Stout as the Base Style. Coconut used at various points in the brew and toasted coconut and vanilla pods added to the fermentation. Show Less
