Beer Description:
Marshmallows + chocolate: a vexing combination to have stuck to your hands ‘round a summer campfire, but the s’more-like flavours pair perfectly in this roasty, velvety chocolate-marshmallow-hemp stout. Vanilla and maple syrup used at the end of the beer-making process impart further complexity and an exquisite dessert-like decadence.



History & Style
The base milk stout style benefits from the addition of 18 kg of organic chocolate, 10 kg of cocoa nibs, and 20 kg of hemp seeds to achieve chocolatey goodness, restrained nuttiness and a silky mouthfeel. The use of marshmallow leaf in the brew is a tip of the hat to the origins of the modern “guimauve” confection, and lends a mild herbal, tea-like quality to the beer.

Sometimes, there's a beer, well, it’s the beer for its time and place. It fits right in there. And that's Ellsmere’s Regret.


Tasting Notes
Aromas of chocolate and roasted malts give way to hints of vanilla and nuts. The flavours of dark chocolate and cocoa meld with roasty malts and are offset by a scintillating syrupy sweetness and a whisper of vanilla.
Food Pairings

Gumbo with Andouille sausage, reuben sandwich, s’mores
