10% Imperial Stout
The end is almost nigh for our Omnipollo showcase! This is beer number 5 of 7, and I'm not going to lie, it's been tough going drinking so many beers above 10%. Nothing a few cups of tea and the occasional nap in between beers can't fix!
Another huge dense body, jet black and inky. It coats the glass well with it's viscosity.
Having only recently drank Noa, this one is very reminiscent, although the pecans seem very prominent in this one. Noa had a dark brown sugar or molasses aspect where as this pushes the nuts to the forefront. Elements of vanilla, gingerbread and chocolate pudding as well.
Flavour is very similar, lots of chocolate pudding, pecan, vanilla with a little roasted bitterness from the dark malts. It reminds me of a sweet hot chocolate, that's gone cold. And is 10% ABV.
This was another purchase from honestbrew.co.uk which at the time of writing still has some in stock!
