The Tempest Brewing Company was created by a Scottish couple who just happen to be gastronauts. Their goal was to create new beers with new flavours and Elemental Dark Ale is a fine example.
Pouring dark chestnut and capped by a light off-white head, Elemental boasts toasted malt, coffee and chocolate scents. The taste is powerful with coffee, vanilla, chocolate bitterness and toasted malt flavours aplenty.
With a medium body and fine bubbles, the result of light carbonation, the bitter malt finish lingers on the palate to give an exquisite finish.
