I’m not (http://www.camrgb.org/2011/09/williams-bros-profanity-stout-7/) the (http://afemaleview.wordpress.com/tag/profanity-stout/) first (http://beer.bobarnott.com/2011/09/18/two-hoots-and-profanity-stout/) to (http://www.reluctantscooper.co.uk/2011/09/profanity-stout-fg-bd-of-beer.html) blog (http://www.folkale.com/ale-beer/a-few-of-those-sainsburys-great-british-beer-hunt-2011-beers/) about this, but it’s worth the extrawords: Williams Bros Profanity Stout (http://www.williamsbrosbrew.com/), currently available in the Sainsbury’sGreat British Beer Hunt (http://www.pencilandspoon.com/2011/09/hooray-for-sainsburys-great-british.html), is really very good.

A beautiful looking bottle, it pours a near-opaque blackwith a ‘fuck yeah, that looks good’ head. The dry hops hit first with a waft ofhop sack freshness; not fruity, not floral, it just smells like hops and that’ssomething often lost in stouts but which makes this stand out. It’s full andsmooth like a 7% stout should be, there’s chocolate, and it’s the good stuffnot the cheap low cocoa bars, a little booze pokes through and it’s roasty butnever astringent (or as Reluctant Scooper (http://www.reluctantscooper.co.uk/2011/09/profanity-stout-fg-bd-of-beer.html) calls it ‘no ruined toast notes’).

The recipe was developed on Heriot-Watt’s degree course. Theguys behind it can be pretty pleased with it. The best I managed was a breadand butter pudding made with a bag of stale jam doughnuts, and while it wasphenomenally delicious, it just wasn’t quite as good as the Profanity Stout.

You can buy three bottles of this for £5 right now. I boughtone yesterday and went back and bought more today.
