Beer Review 164 // Unify or Die 2021 by Blood Brothers Brewing

The summer is over the darkness is closing in and I can justify more and more stouts!

This week I cracked a bottle of Blood Brothers Unify and Die. A dry Irish stout sitting at 7% richness. I have reviewed before back in 2018, but that beer had been aged in error. So here is an official review to update it. Here is the companies fluff:

Full bodied and gluttonous, this stout has been infused with locally roasted coffee, cinnamon, and vanilla to create a beer appropriate for dessert... or any occasion.

Short and sweet, which is great. I hate the pretense of tasting notes. Just tell me the good stuff and move on. Let's kick off this review. The label is fun, looking like the prohibition era and also has a matching glass to go with it, already onto a winner!
The pour is your standard stout colouring or dark brown, the head is a little gentle, nicely coloured but never grows to any more than half a finger in height. Aromas are sweet, slightly caramel, with a background hint of the cinnamon coming through. The taste is lovely, unsweetened dark chocolate, coffee malts and then the vanilla hits and a spicy (from the cinnamon at a guess) finish. The alcohol is the right amount allowing for it to be a sipper without getting you drunk, the sweetness in it pairs with the dark malts and makes for a perfect brew to sip whilst reading a book.

Great brew, go buy some! As always I hope you enjoyed this review. Feel free to comment below or seek me out on one of the many social platforms I hang out on. Here is a quick LINK (Solo bio link) to my details.
