VarVar X North - Smoked Stout - ABV 8.2% 330ml Can
The return collaboration with our friends at Var Var Brewery in Ukraine to support the DEC Ukraine Appeal.
We both brewed strong, rich stout made to replicate the flavours of Ukraine's famed smoked prunes. In our version, we used a fine spread of dark roast malts as well as smoked malt making a rich and sweet base with incredible depth of flavour, and then let it rest in a blend of Laphroaig Whisky and second fill Bourbon and Whisky barrels deepening its palette.
The VarVar version wasn't aged in barrels so comes in a little lighter and less oaky, allowing the prunes to assert themselves a lot more. Both boast luxurious dark roast coffee, essences of liquorice, caramelised muscovado, molasses, and an unmistakable smooth smoke flavour. Try both versions and compare!
10p per can and 15p per pint of this beer will be donated directly to the DEC Ukraine Appeal.
