Black is Beautiful Review

Black is Beautiful is an imperial stout that’s brewed to support justice and equality for people of colour.

Something that really shouldn’t be a problem in a progressive society, but nevertheless an issue that we support completely.

Black is Beautiful can and pour

This version of the Black is Beautiful stout movement is from Left Handed Giant. It’s quite an exotic stout, made with coconut, cacao and Tanzanian vanilla which all work lovely together to make it a beer fully worthy of fuelling revolution.

Black is Beautiful: Taste Test

There’s coconut running right the way through this one and it starts from the moment the can’s opened. The rich scent of dark chocolate combining with a boozy hint and tropical coconut working perfectly.

The pour’s thick and creamy, but the first taste is quite a strong alcohol flavour; although this soon gives way to a bitter sweet dark chocolate flavour that balances well with a hint of vanilla before the booze - and the coconut - returns for the aftertaste.

The aftertaste itself, while being initially more coconutty than anything, soon develops into a thick mouthfeel you get when you eat dark chocolate, that richness that keeps lovers of cacao coming back for more.

Black is Beautiful: Can Notes

As it should be, the front of the can is the beer name in striking black lettering on a white background, making the name of the beer a statement rather than a design consideration.

Black is Beautiful can

The jigsaw-pieced effect of different shades of brown all around the can is a stunning effect visually and helps to really hammer home the point about diversity and, hopefully, draw attention to social problems.
