578: Clouded Minds | Clout Stout

The Brewery: “Clouded Minds brewery was established in London 2013 by an Italian brewer and a British engineer who started creating a range of craft beers on a pilot system…..The next step began in May 2014 when we signed a 6 month deal to rent a brewery in the Derbyshire countryside in which time we grew our customer base……We then brewed our beers at Gipsy Hill brewery in South London whilst finally establishing our own brewery situated on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border which is now in operation and the home of Clouded Minds brewery.”

The Beer: “Our Classic Stout, deep dark ale velvety and malty. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, dried fruits, figs. Mildly sweet & sour with amiable smoky and bitter finish.”

Although served a bit too cold I enjoyed this – very smooth and I always enjoy a certain smokiness in a stout. Great boozer too. 4.5% A.B.V
