Tuatara Black Light Stout (500ml Bottle)
Given that the world is heaving with exotic stouts, Tuatara has opted for a cunning run up the middle with Blacklight. (Hint: take a quick look at the label under a UV lamp.) This unfiltered, bottle conditioned black beauty is as traditional as a second helping of spotted dick. No chocolate, porridge or marine life in here, just great chunks of toasted malts and bittering hops brewed to a full 7% alc/vol.
Many stouts do not fit the classic "Irish" definition as exemplified by Guinness, either due to their hop or roast rates, or higher gravity (in the case of many American stouts). They are still basic stouts, however, not falling into any of the subclasses.
