As you all know I lovedWeird Beard Brew Co Black Perle Stout, so I was really looking forward to cracking open Black Christmas.
With sour cranberry notes, it has a good balance between sweet, sour and bitter, which are incredibly difficult flavours to balance.
Full tasting with great texture, Black Christmas is a very tasty brew. The sour notes remind me a Belgium cherry beer which is very pleasant.
I would say that it feels a little weak, maybe it would have a packed a bigger punch if it had been around the 6% ABV mark!
