Each night, we'll post a blog about the day's hand-picked beer in our Big Beery Advent Calendar - why we love the brewery, why we've chosen the beer, why we think you'll love it too. Feel free to comment below or have your say on Twitter.
Wild Beer says: "Sometimes a drink can make you feel so decadent it's like you're a millionaire; this beer wraps you in a velvety cocoon, dresses you in a smart suit and takes you out for a special night on the tiles. Sweet and salty collide in this rich, balanced and smooth dessert stout. Lactose, caramel and high quality Valrhona cocoa nibs provide a chocolate and caramel backbone alongside the roasty malts whilst the Cornish Sea Salts gives a savoury salty kick, raising this beautiful beer above the norm.
We say: This beer is notorious in HB&B lore for being the only beer we've opened on delivery and drunk before 11am. Our mouths had been salivating ever since we heard Wild Beer - one of our favourite UK breweries for their bold inventiveness - were making a chocolate and salted caramel milk stout. If there's a more delicious-sounding beer out there, we defy you to name it. It lives up to the description too. SUMPTUOUS.
