Artist Series release no. 8 features work from Adelaide based illustrator, Tim Wood. His piece (much like the beer) is alluring, dark, and compels contemplation, so get your fingers on a can while it’s within reach.
Inside you’ll find an imperial stout developed by PL crew members, Rafael Aragon and Zack Lang. It’s a generous beverage, and one worthy of Wood’s transfixing tin.
Pale and specialty malts form the base, while Mosaic hops and post ferment additions of blackcurrant juice and blackberry puree generate deep fruity notes.
It pours dark brown, with mahogany highlights. Expect aromas of 70% dark chocolate and berry syrup, with hints of brown sugar from the boil.
The palate is rich, roasty and delightfully acidic – think choc-dipped blackcurrants and berry studded gâteau. Rock candy and cacao play nicely on the finish.
