Pouring a slightly hazy, golden colour the sweet aroma of tropical fruits, peach and grapefruit is seductive and lures you in. It is equally as sweet to taste with the tropical fruits coming through strongly along with a strong malt taste. At 10.5% this is not a beer for the faint hearted but the sweetness masks the full strength of the alcohol well and it gives you a boozy, warming feeling as it goes down.
Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats embody the craft beer mantra in music form, ditching the modern trend of using technology to mass produce, enhance and constantly modify tracks in favour of raw, impassioned one take soul.
Kingmaker is a triumph and like Rateliff on S.O.B it is guaranteed to have you up on your feet screaming "Son of a bitch, get me a drink!"
