As winter draws in the indoor photography is definitely going to see a sharp increase! I’ll have exchange garden foliage in favour of potted plants for my background scenery. However, the beer remains the star of the show and Wilde Child is the brewery in question today. They are a new brewery to me and I’ve just seen a couple of the beers crop up in Morrisons. The Leeds based outfit have produces ‘Brownie Huntress’, a multi-award winning beer at the world beer awards earning a gold medal in two categories! It is a 7.4% ABV Export Chocolate Fudge Brownie Stout. Sounds divine, I was hoping it would taste divine too…
Visually the beer pours an engine oil level of black with a light tan head. The nose is simply divine. Sweet but not overpowering the best way to describe it is pure fudge brownie. The flavour matches the nose very well. Very reminiscent of a gooey brownie with the body filled with chocolaty goodness. Dangerously easy drinking with the rich flavours masking any hint of booze!
A quick note on the can art: I’m not the biggest fan of the can art simply because I think, for me personally, it comes across a little dark and cluttered. I’d like to know what the sheriff badges are about however.
I think ‘Brownie Huntress’ is the definition of does what it says on the tin. It’s an export strength stout with all the body that comes with it while absolutely nailing the described flavour. It is very much chocolate brownie in liquid form. I can picture myself eating the end pieces of the brownie tray while I drink this. Perhaps a little on the rich/ sweet side but in all honesty I can see why it won the awards it did. Will certainly be trying to get a hold of more beers from Wilde Child.
Thanks for reading! Cheers!
