Brew 37 : Caracolillo

For the third brew of January 2018, and following on from last year’s ‘Samambaia’ mocha milk stout – a coffee porter with a touch of rye to give it that little extra something.

I could have called it Peaberry Porter, as the coffee (freshly ground in the brewhouse) uses peaberry coffee beans. They are evidently a rounder shape than normal coffee bean, so hopefully a rounder flavour in the beer (joke). But peaberry are also known as Caracolillo by those who use the Spanish tongue, so another tongue twister for the beer name.

Cask only for the first time. One at Chappel Winter Beer Festival in very early March. Two probably in pubs in Colchester – landlords and landladies form an orderly queue please.
