Grand Ridge Brewery - Hatlifter Stout

Hatlifter Stout


Grand Ridge Brewery

How was the palate prepared?


First sip mental image:

Country Pub. Green Grass. Winter. Cold.


Dark coffee tan colour. Can’t see through the blackness…yum

How did it taste?

Smooth and easy to drink. Coffee and chocolate overtones with a nicely balanced bitterness for a stout. Not harsh at all on the palate. This is a tasty stout that would be a great starting point for people wanting to adapt their taste buds to the more heavier beers. It doesn’t give you the back of palate twang that some stouts deliver.

Medium to full bodied mouthfeel and excellent head that hung around well into the draining of the beer from the glass.

Suggested accompanying food?

Perfect with a thick and hot shepherd’s pie.

Under what circumstances would I drink a six pack?

When the sun has disappeared because it’s the depths of Winter, a six pack of this beer is a welcome accompaniment. View all of the previous Beer posts here.
