Oskar Blues - Death by Flapjack Beer

I do love flapjacks. Cinabar bakes them on the odd occasion, and I sometimes get one with a cup of tea in an afternoon when we have a day out somewhere. There are certainly some odd ways to depart this world and Death by Flapjack could be one of them. Produced by Oskar Blues this ale comes from across the vast pond and was made with maple syrup, vanilla, lemon peel, nutmeg, lactose, and natural flavour.

At 6.5% in volume, Death by Flapjack is in a fairly hefty 355ml can. Almost black in colour the sweet spiced aroma of maple syrup hit me straight away on opening the can. I could probably smell this ale all day if it wasn't for the fact that I immediately wanted to drink it.

On taste Death by Flapjack smells so silky sweet and smooth that the flavour transcends from that sweet aroma. All the flavours listed are perfectly merged together from the get-go. With the sweet maple syrup overlapping the roasted chocolate malts, mixing with the vanilla, spiced nutmeg, creamy milkiness and a touch of citrus bitterness from the hops and added lemon peel into the aftertaste. This ale is a moreish sumptuous treat indeed. Gosh this ale is a good way to go if ever there was one!

Happy Halloween!
