New Brewdog Black Heart is the malty stout we didn’t know we needed

Two cans of Brewdog Black Heart stout beer

Brewdog has launched Black Heart, a classic stout that could well give its better known rival a run for its money. 

The black stuff is big news right now – Guinness now claims to be Britain’s best-selling pint. Hot on the heels of Iron Maiden’s Special Edition Trooper Imperial Stout, this new Brewdog launch hopes to popularise the beverage beyond its stereotypical St Patrick’s Day audience. We’ve been trying it and it’s delicious.

Our verdict? Brewdog Black Heart is just more flavoursome than Guinness

This quaffable 4.1% ABV stout is brewed with Simcoe hops, roasted barley and chocolate malt to the fore. It’s smooth and malty, with notes of coffee and chocolate on the palate, and it exits with a coy caramel kiss. Our verdict? Brewdog Black Heart is just more flavoursome than Guinness.

Black Heart is available on tap in Brew Dog bars, and canned through Tesco and online. An in-can nitro widget provides a draft experience (invert and pour straight down for the best results). 

The Scottish craft beer populist is supporting the launch with a bunch of merch, including branded glasses, t-shirts and tote bags.
