Verhaal achter het bier;
Prior to the 1850’s there were many Scottish coastal ale-houses which brewed their own ales, these ales were made from local malted barley which was grown on fields fertilised with seaweed. This environment gave the barley a very specific flavour which we have recreated by the inclusion of fresh seaweed in the mash tun.

In addition to the seaweek (bladder rack) harvested on the Argyll coast we have used darker malts roasted by ourselves. Kelpie is a rich chocolate ale which has an aroma of fresh seabreeze and a distinctive malty texture.

The name Kelpie is the term for mythical creatures one of which lives in each loch of Scotland. The best know kelpie is the Loch Ness Monster. The symbol on the label is a Pictish symbol of a kelpie.

Complements to Kelpie: Perfect with seafood and sushi.

Andere proevers:

pours dark brown almost black with very little head that left no lacing
smells like a milk stout - roasted malts tiny bit of chocolate and a little sweet milk
taste is similar roasted malts mostly - i dont get any of the milk flavor that was in the nose
mouthfeel was very light with very little carbonation
drinkability was ok but i would rather drink a real stout - this beer is a little to watery


Pours an opaque brown color. At first a two finger beige head forms, but recedes in a minute. Little lace is left behind.
S: Lightly roasted malt and chocolate. Lactic milk and some skunky aromas.
T: Again, lightly roasted malt with chocolate. Milk and some odd funkiness.
M/D: A medium body and well carbonated. A little watery. Not hard to drink. I just really don't want to take another sip.
This is an odd beer. More of a novelty than anything else. Worth a try, but nothing special.
