Robe, South Australia.
Unique, Marine & Umami Ale ABV 7.4% 750ml Bottle.
Limited Supply. Individually numbered with Hand Painted Labels
Dark amber in colour, this full-bodied ale smoothly carries its 7.4% a/v. The aroma will take you back to deserted beaches and wooden fishing boats. Musky hints of sweet undertones. Take one sip and an explosion of sweet and spicy, maritime unami flavours fill your mouth, while the musky, ethereal ambergris perfume lifts into the nasal cavities adding a higher dimension to the tasting experience.
Highly prized by the perfume industry, ambergris washes up on the beaches, typically after having cured in the ocean for even decades. We were lucky enough to find a small specimen of this floating gold on a beach near Robe, SA. After discovering that ambergris was used in cooking during medieval times and had even been used to lift flavour of wines and brandies, we decided to add it to an imperial version of our original amber ale.
