Gyle 59 Brewery – Dark and Bitter Black IPA 5.8%
This ale is brewed in Dorset. It is a dark ruby coloured ale with deceptive sweet malt and plum aromas. It has a roasted coffee taste from the dark roasted malts used, with a strong hop and grapefruit bitter follow on. A very dry bitterness in taste like an Irish black stout but with the thinner texture of bittered IPAs.
Additionally the Brewery runs a cellar bar in nearby Lyme Regis –
Cellar 59 – The Natural Beer House
a visit to which will be planned.
