1906 was a revolutionay point in worldwide ship building, with the launch of the dark, powerful Dreadnought. Just as this formidable steam propelled craft stretched the engineering capabilities of the day, this equally formidable dark stout has stretched the limited of our Brewhouse. With the aim to create an intense black beer with a significant malt character and bitterness for our next Single Batch, we tured to the home of the Dreadnought for inspiration. A selection of six specialty roasted malts have combined with our base malt to provide a rich, bold flavoured stout with liberal additions of Fuggles hops to deliver a fitting, traditional earthy aroma. We would hope that the stout fuelled dock workers of the time would be impressed.
