Just like you, but different
Unleash the beast!
A big bold Stout with deep coffee & chocolate notes and a fruity finish.
So, What could possibly go wrong?
Lots of Coffee on opening this one, milky coffee.
Pour is deep charcoal black with a large head that is light and bubbly.
It loses that coffee/chocolate/milkiness aroma when it is in the glass which is a shame.
There’s a lot of carbonation in this, which is problematical as it interferes or detracts from the taste that you’re thinking you’re getting, so it’s not easy to pick out any of the things that the brewer might have intended.
There’s coffee, and there’s slight bitterness if you really look for it, the whole doesn’t finish to much and it’s quite a short drinking drink in this version.
Not at all like the “oooof” that I remember. Could be too cold though.
It’s not too cold, but it is now just like drinking a fizzy cold brew coffee. there’s no substance in the middle to this beer and it’s kind of flat and one dimensional, which is a great pity an shame.
So here I am, an album from a few years ago, and a beer from a year ago, the album is still great, and yet my experience of the beer this time is less than memorable. It’s odd how things can be like that.
The beer of course warms more, but it never gathers itself more, I’m going to lay blame at the carbonation for this, it’s annoying and does nothing for the enjoyment of the beer, I just don’t enjoy that constant prickling, this is not the beer for that.
I’m pretty sure that if I could get the bubbles gone that I’d be a a big fan of this beer. Alas.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 of its things from the thing. It’s ok, but it’s not good. It’s nice coffee flavour, but too fizzy. Lovely aroma but I want to drink my beer not smell it. I’m really disappointed as I’m pretty sure this was the full noise when I had it less than a year ago,
