Weathered Souls Brewing Co have launched a global initiative for a collaborative effort to raise awareness for the injustices people of colour face daily, they have shared an imperial stout recipe with breweries across the world who are producing their take on this recipe and donating the profits to local relevant charities.
Black Is Beautiful is the LHG take on the Weathered Souls recipe, with additions of toasted coconut, cacao and Tanzanian vanilla. The flavour is dominated by heaps of toasted coconut and delicate dry notes of cocoa powder and a noticeable sweetness from the Tanzanian Vanilla which holds its own in the flavour profile. Creating an overall roasty decadence that is robust, yet elegant.
The finish is subtly dessert-like but with a delicate amount of bitterness, a result of the complex malt bill and addition of toasted coconut during fermentation. Both complementing the pallet just enough to create a complex balance that lets the individual adjuncts shine.
100% of the profits from this beer will be donated to SARI, a local Bristol charity who provide free of charge support for victims of hate crime and also diversity training and education in work places and schools throughout the southwest.
