We won’t let lockdown stop us! Here is a new seasonal beer for you to try. It is dark chocolate stout – intense and sophisticated. 

Made with raw cacao nibs and then balanced with malty sweetness and a little touch of cane sugar. At 4.2% isn’t too strong so a perfect addtion to our spring seasonal selection. 

Why not head to the online shop to try some now. 

We know the name might cause a few puzzled looks. We like to look at local history to help us name some of our darker beers. We read about the 17th century gruesome practice of witch-pricking with evidence of it being carried out not far from Lossiemouth, in the town of Forres. Accused witches were tested with a needle and if found guilty were sent to their deaths in stout barrels (spot the link!). Thankfully no witches were harmed in the making of this beer.
