Whiplash Dark Steering
Dark Steering - Schwarzbier - 5.2% - 440ml
It’s been years now of incessant pestering from the beer community as to when we’d finally brew a Schwarzbier. It’s come to the point when we can’t go outside our front doors without delivery drivers or our neighbours asking us again and again at the door when the German black lager is gonna drop. Well, here it is. You’ve won.
Dark Steering is a Schwarzbier, Whiplash style. Built on a base of German Munich and an infusion of softer-than-soft water: we’ve peppered this with loads and loads of continental light Aromatic Malt, a very light sprinkling of Chocolate malt for colour and given this the full lager treatment. Boiled with only the finest Hallertau Magnum for a soft bitterness then flung into a fermenter to meet our old pal WLP833 – it’s fermented then given that long lager sleep it deserves.
The result is a black beer with hints of brown and ruby against the light with a fluffy soft and tight-knit tan foam that won’t quit. Nose of fresh bread crust emerging from the oven, black cherry and a hint of fairy cakes. Flavour matches in amongst the medium to light body. Crisp, finishing lightly sweet with a pleasing lingering of quality dark chocolate before it disappears again.
