Singapore craft brewery Sunbird Brewing Company has recently launched their new seasonal beer. The ‘Naughty and Nice Chocolate Mint Milk Stout’ is released just in time for Christmas.
To further sweeten things up, they have also created a beer-infused Chocolate log cake, in collaboration with Little House of Dreams. Now, that’s an interesting Christmas food bundle to bring over to a Christmas party celebration!
Naughty and Nice Chocolate Mint Milk Stout
This new festive beer, stored in the prettiest glass bottle, features the sweet aromatics of cacao nibs and mint. You can immediately taste that hint of chocolate on your first sip. This milk stout contains 5% alcohol.
This hearty yet well-rounded milk stout, semi-sweet slightly dry finish, pairs well with desserts like traditional British fruit cake and Christmas cookies.
It’s my first time trying a milk stout – a smooth-drinking dark beer brewed with milk sugar. The sweet notes complement nicely with the natural bitter flavour in the beer.
This is that one-of-kind beer which you can surprise your guests with at the dining table.
When beer meets log cake
To ‘sweeten’ things up, Sunbird Brewing Company partnered with Little House of Dreams cafe to create the Scottish-Ale Chocolate log cake. It is essentially a beer-infused log cake made with Sunbird Brewing Company’s best-selling beer, Scottish Ale. This type of beer has a pronounced caramelized and roasted malted flavour.
The beer is infused with the batter as well as the Swiss meringue buttercream. The roasted malt flavour in the log cake is subtle. And you can’t really tell if there is beer in it or not. But I guess the beer makes the cake a little fluffier and spongier. Overall, this creative bake tasted pleasant. It sits well with my palate as it isn’t overly sweet or chocolatey, differing the usual Christmas cakes.
For an added dimension and crunch, they added Feuilletine flakes and milk chocolate into the log cake. Coupled with a glass of Chocolate Mint Milk stout, this log cake will taste even better.
Thankfully, you won’t get drunk or gassy eating beer-infused log cake. About a one-third of a bottle of Scottish-Ale is used in each cake.
