The lizard people...
I absolutely LOVE this label. It's a nice, simple black background, with s plain (yet elegant) font that easy to read... and a picture of a lizard person... in a suit.
I love it. An odd, even absurd concept done beautifully.
This dark sour is dark- almost as dark as a stout would be- but just light enough that you can almost see some auburn highlights to it. A really fascinating twinning of colours that I quite liked.
The first sip was a nice hearty, "Hello! I'm a lizard person! Want to buy insurance from me?" for the taste buds. After the first slap of a lizardy palm, this brew settles down into a refined discussion about the benefits of black currants being combined with a 7.5% beer- and whether or not aging it in wine barrels was done to add a subtle oak and wine taste, or for the pure theatrics of being classy as fuck.
Personally, I have to agree with our lizard beer overlords that black currants and beer was indeed a tasty and elegant flavour- and that the wine barrels was a nice theatrical touch, while adding a pleasant undertone.
Unfortunately, this engaging conversation ended all too soon, and I was left wanting more from these lovely lizard people. They provided a lovely drink experience... and were- if I'm to be entirely honest... classy as all fuck.
They were very Good indeed.
