Dark Star Rising!

These three bottles pretty much screamed 'Pay Attention!' as they arrived from Dark Star Brewing Co.

In truth, they needn't have bothered screaming at all, because I was already extremely keen to pay them all kinds of attention - long before they arrived!

They are - (from left to right)

Espresso - (Black beer. Made with freshly ground Arabica coffee beans...)
Imperial - (Imperial stout)
Sunburst - (Summer ale)

Each of these will be getting the full Bottled Beer Year treatment over the coming days and weeks.

Choosing which of the three to explore first may prove tricky.

If only coins had three sides!

They are all excellent beers (in fact I don't think Dark Star brew a bad beer!).

The imperial stout is out favourite of the three, such a complex yet easy drinking beer - an absolute beauty.

I'm not sure if you've read my 'Baron on Tour: Dark Star' post:

The Noble Baron-

Many thanks, I'll be sure to check that link out. Though, perhaps I'll wait until after posting on each of them - the sacred pursuit of impartiality and all that!
