We made this beer over two years ago now. It was a mixture of Coopers Dark Ale and Coopers Real Ale (light), to make half & half in the bottle. Because it’s a two-can brew, it is extremely rich and hopsy, with the dark ale giving it a roasty kind of character.
It’s a really nutritional tasting brew, with an intense, somewhat marmite-like aroma. The picture actually makes it look a little clearer than it is – it’s actually a touch opaque. This doesn’t detract from the taste, however, which is full-bodied yet quite satisfactory as a beverage to have with a meal – particularly with Germanic food. One pint now and then is more than enough, however, as it is quite potent!
Because of the dark flavours, we often use this brew when making bread, as it gives the loaf a deep malty taste.
