Oakham Black Baron

Oakham Ales Black Baron at the Cambridge Blue

This is a mighty 8.8% Imperial Stout, black and bitter with a splash of blackberries, warming as whiskey after one mouthful, an outstanding beer.

Presumably named after the feared German Panzer tank commander, killed in 1944, probably by a Sherman tank gunner from the 1st Northamptonshire Yeomanry, in Northern France during an ambush.
