A complex beer with aromas of leather, chocolate and liquorice, with a lingering taste.

Prince of Denmark is a strong, dark beer of great complexity and depth. Brown, amber and black malts are mixed with pale ale malts to give this beer its strong aroma and colouring.
It is based on traditional recipes from the 18th Century but has also been described as an ‘Imperial Stout Nouveau’. As complex as Shakespeare's eponymous hero of which the label is derived.
As dark as a Shakespearean thicket of woods on a moonless night, with an equally impenetrable sense of darkness surging out of the glass — think treacle toffee, mocha coffee, milk chocolate and a smokiness suggestive of a bonfire several fields away.
Take a sip and it’s more chocolate, coffee, treacle, ripe dark plums and caramel whirling around a creamy mouth feel before its dry, bittersweet finish.
A dessert beer, served alongside an apple pie whose soft sweetness and slight acidity would happily accompany the deep, dark flavours of the beer.
Also try with Tiramisu or raspberry cheesecake.
