Sometimes a drink can make you feel so decadent it’s like you’re a millionaire; this beer wraps you in a velvety cocoon, dresses you in a smart suit and takes you out for a special night on the tiles... Sweet and salty collide in this rich, balanced and smooth dessert stout.
The delicious decadence and complexities of Millionaire come from the eclectic array of high-quality ingredients that we put into this beer. Starting with its Munich malt base, we use solely speciality malts to deliver a satisfying big body that brings a huge mouth-feel to its relatively low abv. We then bring in Valrhona Cocao nibs that are used by chocolatiers and pastry chefs around the world. For the finish is a flurry of Cornish sea salt that brings a lingering savoury balance.
The idea for this beer sparked when our co-founders sat down for coffee in Edinburgh on a cold January afternoon. Along with a black coffee, Andrew ordered a slice of Millionaire’s Shortbread. The combination of salted caramel, dark chocolate, biscuit base and the bitter coffee were intensely satisfying. So he and Brett set about de-constructing the favours to rebuild them into a beer.
