HOPDOG BLACK SUNSHINE

HopDog Black Sunshine. When I saw this beer the first thing that came to mind was ‘Black Sunshine’ by White Zombie. The spoken word intro by Iggy Pop ringing in my ears…“Gripping the wheel, his knuckles went white with desire! The wheels of his Mustang exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45. True death: 400 horsepower of maximum performance piercing the night... This is Black Sunshine."

Unfortunately this beer is not as cool as the Mustang or the song. It’s an oatmeal stout which is now part of their regular range. At 5% ABV and 30 IBU it’s pretty light on for a stout.

Jet black with a light foamy head, highly carbonated with a chocolate aroma. In terms of mouthfeel and body it’s far too thin for a stout. There is a chocolate malt flavour with an overriding acidic off fruit flavour. It has the same taint as the Hopdog Children of Darkness. Luckily I had a Coopers Extra Stout in the fridge to act as an antidote.

 

2/10
