From the newest brewery in Victoria BC 4 Mile Brewing CO comes their “English Strong Ale”. The beer pours a deep amber colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of roasty malts, sweet dark fruits, nuts and candied sugar. The flavour is of burnt malts, caramel, sweetness, dark fruits, nuts and a piney hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 6.9% with an IBU of 50. Being the very first beer that I have tasted from this brewery I am quite interested in trying more of their brews. This was a very well crafted beer with lots of flavour and calls for you to pick up more bottles in the future.
Commercial Description: A robust nutty whack of the full-on strong personalities of malts and hops. There’s a bit of a wrestling match going on to see who’s nuttier, but they decide on a harmonious truce, and call for an alliance of flavours where no one is the conqueror and everybody wins. This beer can tango with a mellow pork pie, but it will also head-butt with the bold spice of Jerk chicken. If called upon it will make that last piece of stale dried-up pizza taste frigging amazing.
