Salopian Brewery - Entire Butt
- ABV: 4.80%
- Serving Temperature: 50-55° F
- Suggested Glassware: Pint Glass, Mug or Stein
A Silver Medal winner at the 1999 Great British Beer Festival’s Beer Champion Awards, Entire Butt is brewed with an astounding 14 different malts (listed on the bottle label). So it’s fitting that the term ‘entire butt’ bears a secondary meaning similar to “everything but the kitchen sink.” Expect a dark, cola-like brown beer with garnet highlights capped by a billowy thick tan head. The nose presents a very engaging and complex array of malty characteristics. Look for notes of chocolate pudding, rum cake, coffee grounds, chicory root, and cola. There are faint spicy hop characteristics but overall, things are weighed down by the powerful malt presence. The flavor profile is even more complex than the nose. Creamy and full in the mouth, expect a cavalcade of malty notes. We found it opened on the sweeter side of things with milk chocolate, rocky road ice cream & cocoa, and then evolved into more bitter malt characters showcasing notes of dark chocolate and coffee. There are some notes of plum, but these are minor. The beer finishes with a mild bitterness with notes of Kahluha, coffee, pudding, figs and hot cocoa and chalk dust. First enjoy on its own, then consider a shellfish pairing.
