Around the World in 80 Beers Episode 201: Longstocking Dark Ale
Beer

Longstocking Brewery Dark Ale

Pours a deep, almost opaque red. Very little carbonation visible and a very small head.

First sip: Strong malt, with chocolate, coffee flavours up front. Very little hops - enough to put a very mild woody bitterness on the swallow. None of the flavours last long. Mild carbonation tingle on the tongue. Quite warming in the belly.

I know it sounds a little insipid, but this is a very drinkable beer. It goes down well, maybe a little too fast, and leaves you wanting another sip as soon as you finish the last. The dark maltiness wants me to linger over the brew, but I find myself halfway through the glass in no time at all. This is a yummy beer which leaves you warm in the belly.

Make that 2/3 of the way through the glass.

Just a thought... have you considered publication? If it works out well, you might not need that new job.

I should look into publication, when I've tried All The Beers.

Or, given the title, you should publish a new volume every 80th beer.
