Sunshine Brewing Stout

Style

Stout, Porter & Dark

Brewed In

Gisborne

What to expect:

Long smooth wave of sweet chocolate

Judges Comments:

As smooth as perfect wave curling into Gisborne’s famed Wainui Beach, this stout will blow you away with its velvet texture and charming flavours. Brewer Dave Huff, who learned his craft at Auckland’s Hallertau, is creating some world-class beers in Gisborne and this is one of them. First up, it’s distinctly chocolate intertwined with berries and caramel. The flavour is long and rich and the mouthfeel creamy and satin. It finishes more sweet than bitter, which is a virtue for those who think they “don’t like stout”. Try it and be converted. It’s a long smooth ride on a glassy wave of flavour.

Pairing Recommendation:

This sweet stout is a classic match for oysters. The sweet counters the salt and the light body doesn't overpower the oyster. Its Irish heritage loves colcannan and sausages.
