Beer Review: Stoke Dark


As far as easy drinking Dark Ales go, this one has to be one of the most flavorsome. It has a very sweet nose that hides a crisp bitter malty taste. Brewed without any artificial flavors, all of the flavors in this beer come from the malts and hops that were selected by the Stoke brewers.

The winner of several awards since 2011, the gentle mix of flavors in this ale makes it a great beginners beer into the world of Darker brews.
