2017 Capture The Crown with Lenny Boy Brewing
1st Place – Thomas Fenton – “Clear winner in our book! Very smooth sweet stout with slight lactose and coffee/chocolate notes. Not overly sweet with a nice roastiness. The body has notes of butter (in a good way) – caramel malt variant perhaps? Through and through a well balanced and tasty beer. Well done!
