For those of you who don’t know Aro there is a light side and a dark side to the valley. For those of us on the dark side of the street it’s been a long dark winter. But salvation is nigh. The coming of Spring has brought the first teasing hints that the sun might come again to the Garage.This beer is pitch black and full-flavoured with a nice balance of hops and roast malt. At its heart is English Maris Otter pale malt, with a touch of Crystal and a generous addition of Roast and Black malts. Chinook and Summit create a nice citric bitterness and aroma, marrying nicely with the roast malt character.
