Jimthechap (1480) - Christchurch, - NOV 3, 2012
As dark as sin with a lively caramel head that left excellent lace behind in the glass. I’m intrigued to find resinous Pacific NW hop aroma rather than bold caramel and chocolate. The more I think of it, the more I like that the status quo is being pushed, but we’ll see if this translate to a rating typical of those preceding this one. Flavours initially of darker malts, burnt grain and sprucy hops. Does it go well together? I don’t think it doesn’t. It doesn’t adopt the Epic philosophy of grasping your tastebuds and giving your head a bloody good rattle but I think the combination works rather well. There’s balance and subtlety (and I hope this doesn’t make Luke Nicholas’ head explode for my writing it). I’m getting ripe apricots, spruce and bitterness along with dark chocolate and cocoa and it isn’t unwelcome on my palate. The flavour is lasting and brings out the sprucy hops toward the finish. I would ask why this hasn’t been done in greater measure before or are we all a little bit precious about what stout should be? This stout is silky and not shy on flavour, so what is the problem?

Bottle @ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Wonderful smoky soy-sauce nose, unfortunately for me that was as good as it got, some chocolate and licorice on the tongue but the taste was nowhere near as good as the smell.

Det här var en riktigt god sak med balanserade toner av choklad, vanilj och kaffe. Kroppen var stabil och upplevelsen trevlig.
