Townshend Brewery Flemish Stout 9% (500ml)-Hop Burns & Black

Townshend Brewery Flemish Stout 9% (500ml)

by Townshend Brewery

We stashed this beer away in our ageing cupboard and - we confess - forgot about it until tasting beers for our recent beer and cheese night, and remembered about this antipodean beauty. It turned out to be the perfect match for the Sparkenhoe Blue cheese we served - and was hands down voted the beer and match of the night.

Age has treated this beer extremely well - it's mellowed to be all rich chocolate and soft fruit. It's too good for us to hang on to in our cellar so due to popular demand we're putting it back on sale.

Martin Townshend is a mad magician of beer and beat the big boys when his brewery, Townshend Brewing - which he still runs out of a shed in his backyard - was named Champion New Zealand Brewery at the Brewers Guild of New Zealand Awards 2014. His remarkable Flemish Stout is as good, if not better, than anything coming out of Belgium, as is his Belgian Tripel.
