REVIEW #35: Mud City Stout (Sadler's Ales)

Pours an inky black with a whitish head which doesn't hang around too long. Roasted notes in the aroma and a faint bouquet of chocolate and coffee beans. The chocolate cream up front swiftly turns dry, with burnt barley malt and woody, dark chocolate flavours prevailing. Biscuitty, medium-dry finish with a trace of alcohol. Very firm mouthfeel. Good stuff!

Sadler's first opened their Windsor Castle Brewery in 1900 in Birmingham's 'Black Country'. Brewing lasted until 1927. It restarted in 2004, after a hiatus of 77 years! They now own many local pubs and do a range of bottled beers including 'Hop Bomb', 'Worcester Sorceror', 'Thin Ice' and 'Stumbling Badger', as well as 'Mud City Stout'... The latter 2 being available in Asda supermarkets in the Midlands area. I'm not sure to what the 'Mud City' part of the name refers, the only thing I can find out is that its the name of a strip club in The Simpson's!?
