Beer #62 - Funk Estate / Afrodisiac
Beer #62 - W/C 2 May 2016
Super Afrodisiac is brewed annually by the old romantics at Funk Estate one a year as a celebration of love and released in time for St. Valentine's Day. They are basically the Barry White of NZ brewing and take no responsibility for any passionate trysts that may arise following consumption of this double stout brewed with chocolate, vanilla, honey, figs and maca root. Be sure to drink this at cellar temperature and you'll be rewarded with an array of complex flavours in this rich, smooth, full bodied beer. There is milk chocolate, caramel sweetness and also roast-y bitterness. The only thing you may not notice is the 8% abv.
This is the 3rd flavoured stout/porter we have drank in as many weeks (and the last for a while if any of you are getting tired of them!). We can't wait to see how Beer Jerk members feel Afrodisiac stacks up against the last 2 beers from much more established breweries.
