Beer review — Moondog

Moon Dog Freaks and Geeks Farmhouse Ale 330ml $6.90
This Farmhouse ale results from collaboration between Danish brewer, Beerhere, and Moon Dog Brewery, Abbotsford, Victoria. The colour’s a dense, dark tan, the alcohol hits 7.6 per cent and the range of malts (including barley, rye, wheat and oats) gives exotic, tart, sweet and sour, savoury flavours. A Christmas pudding beer.

Moon Dog Wet Nurse Tonic Milk Stout 330ml $7.50
Moon Dog’s voluptuous milk stout trowels strong chocolate and roasted coffee bean flavours onto the palate. The slippery, creamy, fluffy texture adds to the overall opulence of a sweet but also bitter and seductive brew. Could be a great companion to Christmas chocolates and nuts.
