Malt

About

Futile Lord is our homage to that most globe-trotting of styles, the Tropical Stout. These dark, rich beers took root in far flung British colonies, inspired by imported Foreign Export Stouts but adapted to local ingredients and processes. The restrained bitterness allows for complex sweetness and fruitiness to take center stage. Contrasts beautifully with spicy foods, but also plays nice for dessert.
