Kronos, the king of the Titans, and father of the first generation of the Olympian gods, he overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age, until he was overthrown by his own son Zeus (our IIPA). Kronos also fathered Hades (our Stout) and Poseidon (our Pale Ale).
Winter! Time to let the brakes off in the Brewhouse. You could say we’ve gone large with Kronos. The first in what will be an annual release.
Malt complexity and a palate weight that will carry for days. The grist has been layered with loads of toasted and biscuit malts to lay the foundations for the ever-luscious crystal and signature chocolate malt both from Simpsons in the UK. We decided to go sans any heavily roasted acidic roasted grains, with warming alcohols, mid palate biscuit and still present acidity from the 900 EBC chocolate malt all playing their role superbly. Heavily hopped though well disguised this will be a breakfast or dessert stout for the ages.
