Inspired by the Cape Buffalo
GNARLED BOSS. Spicy Rye combines with resinous fruity hops and residual sweetness from darker caramel malts exhibits hints of dark chocolate.
Another beer that means business. A toasty and spicy malt base, with a little bit of caramel. Subtle roast flavours of coffee and chocolate hiding in the background. A good mid-brown colour, with some gold-red highlights. The strong malt base is balanced with powerful hops like Amarillo, Citra and Chinook, lending it fruity tone of citrus, guava and lychee. A well-rounded and exceptionally flavourful beer.
The Cape Buffalo
The African Buffalo is one of the big 5 on the African continent. It is also one of the most dangerous on the plains of Africa, able to take on predators as fierce as the lion. They are gregarious herbivores in love with eating soft green grass and wallowing in mud baths. They have become a major target for trophy hunters wanting to shoot individuals with a boss of more than 42 inches, with their populations declining due to over hunting.
