Tempest Brewing Co – Elemental

20160413_210844From the ultra pale and into the dark.

Next I’ll be trying out another of my Beer52 offerings from Tempest Brewing Co.
Looking at their range, it’s safe to say that I haven’t tried one of their brews before. Good to see some award winners aswell as some highly rated brews on Ratebeer.
I’ve got me a bottle of Elemental Dark Ale which is described as a robust porter and offers a 5.1% ABV to help move things onto the next level.
Let’s see what Tempest have got to say about Elemental :-

A robust railway porter that’s smoothly irresistible.
Classic roast character balanced with spicey hops.

The beer itself is more of a dark brown colour and on pouring produced a small tan head which very quickly dissipated.
Although subtle, the aroma gives elements of roast malt and mocha.
This smooth porter gives an initial sweetness which builds into a slightly smoked flavour offering a warming and lasting bitterness at the end.

It would be perfect for those cold Winter months and might even help to put some hairs on your chest
