Named to commemorate a night when the Naivasha House in Kenya was shaking so strongly Del thought it was an earthquake. It turned out to be a hippo from lake Naivasha scratching itself against the house.

Complex flavor profile with a prominent malty sweetness and earthy character. Goes well with hearty rich foods like steak, roasts, or beef stew.

Food Pairing: It pairs best with rich foods like steak and barbecue.
