Spooks Ale (Shepherd Neame)

Spooks Ale (Shepherd Neame)
Name: Spooks Ale
Label: "The official ghost brew for All Hallows - Drink if you dare - Gall of Shepherd, Slip of Neame, Silver'd in the Kents moon dream - Double double boil & bubble, hops brown & barley stubble"
Brewery: Shepherd Neame
ABV: 4.7%

Rating: "A classic beer of true quality, Spooks Ale is characterised by its huge biscuity malt palate, derived from three traditional roasted barley malts used in the mash, giving a glorious deep red hue. The excitingly complex malty flavours are wonderfully balanced by a huge citrussy, hoppy bitterness and aroma from a particularly fruity hop added at four stages in the brewing process. The memory of this beer will haunt you forever!" Scarily delicious.

Game: After this beer I'm off back to Arkham City as I have a Halloween date with Calendar Man apparently.  Not sure whether it'll work or not but he seemed to be saying that if I go and visit him on the 31st of October then something will happen. It sounds like nonsense to me but I'm curious so I've not checked the internet for clarification lest the surprise be spoilt. I'm just going to turn up to the date, hopefully for a candle-lit meal followed by a good rom-com.  I remember getting an achievement on Call of Juarez 2 when I had a duel at high noon (that's 12 o' clock our time) so anything's possible.

Yeah, like digestive or hobnob. But definitely NOT custard cream or rich tea.

Brew would be lovely, nice one :D Apologies that it always seems to be your turn to brew up!

Son of a... infiltrating a man's stash of Earl Grey is a step too far!

Sigh... I think we're all doomed. And if you can't beat em... *google searches for 'Daniel Craig Fan Club registration form'"...

The Elderly said...

Hi there! This article could not be written any better!
Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
He constantly kept talking about this. I will send
this post to him. Pretty sure he's going to have a
good read. Thank you for sharing!

Hi Lavon! You're right, this article is pretty damn awesome isn't it? Glad you think so! You're previous room-mate sounds like a bit of a clown though... why would he constantly keep talking about it? The ale and game are admittedly great, and talk about it for a bit, sure, but constantly? He's either a fool or a magpie. Anyway, I hope he enjoys the article once you send him the link. Maybe he'll shut up about it and give you a bit of peace! Enjoy!
