Driftwood’s Son of the Morning Returns for 2017

Sonofthemorning.jpgAve Satanas! Driftwood Brewery has announced the return of the world’s most evil beer: Son of the Morning.

This Belgian-style golden strong ale is one of favourites and ranks up there with some of the best ones that actually come from Belgium! It has notes of bready pilsner malt, clove, white pepper, coriander, banana, floral and earthy hops, and of course a bit of booze.

It also cellars really well. I still have bottles from 2015 and 2016 aging.

As a huge metal head, how can I not love a beer with this ridiculously cool label from Hired Guns Creative and this awesome invocation on the bottle:

Thou fallen fiend, bringer of light and death,
The word made fleshless, ripp’d at toothèd breath.
Though slave’d on high, inferno thou dost reign
In bloodless blood and crown of baphometh.
Return, O shining one, O Helel Ben Shahar,
Son of the Morning, rise again!


  • ABV: 10%
