I never got hold of Preciou1 Cargo – but popping down to the Dead Centre Brewery to collect my tasty takeaway pizza – Preciou2 was on display.
So I bought it.
Combining 2 of my favourite styles of beer – barrel aged – sherry this time – and Belgian Tripel – the results were a delight.
Despite the 9.2% ABV this is seductively easy to drink.
Starting off with a beguiling lightness on the palate, heavier rich notes of maltiness & treacly undertones develop.
A touch of nuttiness on the finish only adds to the experience.
Preciou2 Cargo was brewed to celebrate Dead Centre’s 2nd Birthday.
With beer this good – let there be many more!
