Liquorice – 5.0 % ABV – 500ml
Liquorice, a full-bodied stout and guaranteed sell out!
This beer is a smooth stout with a soft after taste. Brewed annually it is one of Janine’s, our head brewer, favourite and making it with the whole root and not just flavourings is a big part in Janine’s brewing ethos of natural flavour.
Dedicated to the Bassett family mainly two sisters one who lived until she was 100 years old known as Elisabeth Bassett. the sisters lived in Ashover who were famous for their liquorice sweets. Elisabeth or better known as Betty by locals served the Ashover community in a variety of roles. She was presented with a royal crown derby commemorative plate in 2002 for all her hard work over the years and the parish rooms were renamed the bassett rooms in he honor.
The hint of liquorice brings this stout alive and provides a refreshing mouthful of a traditional stout beer with an extra aniseed hit.
All our beers are named after Ashover land marks, Ashover people locally sourced produce or the hops used in the brewing of our lovingly crafted traditional ales.
The term “stout” originally derives from being a “proud” or “brave”. But later years meant it took to mean that the beer was “strong” but it could also be used to describe a “dark” beer in whole. Liquorice is often used in the flavouring of food and drink and in Chinese medicine.
