Seasonal Beers

We have some beers we brew as the seasons change, such as our dark and rich Dash Away Cherry Chocolate Stout in Winter, or our Pumpkin Brew that we brew in the run up to Hallowe’en.

Pumpkin Brew

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Strength: 4.5% a.b.v.

Tasting Notes: The original Irish Pumpkin Ale brewed with home grown pumpkins, which we roast before adding to the mash, and our own Trouble Brewing blended pumpkin spice. A rich orange and amber coloured beer, spicy sweetness with an underlying caramel and nutty malt profile. A big initial aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg from the pumpkin spice that also gives a satisfying finish of ginger and cinnamon that lingers on the pallet. A spiced pumpkin pie in a glass!

Grain: Pale Ale

Hops: First Gold, East Kent Goldings

First Brewed: September 2012

Dash Away

Style: Cherry Chocolate Stout

Strength: 5.7% a.b.v.

Tasting Notes: With a chocolate and light roast malt aroma, this seasonal stout’s initial dark & bitter chocolate flavour is quickly replaced by rich complex malt flavours, leaving a lingering sweet cherry and dark fruit taste on the palate.
