When you get to that time of day when that cup of hot coffee is no longer the answer, and you need something with a little extra kick, plait your bear, stick on your eye patch and grab a Black Perle. This milk stout is chock full of roasty malts, milk sugar, hopped with hand full’s of perle plundered from the unsuspecting and aged on a chest full of Zamorana coffee beans.

AshtonMcCobb (5401) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle from a corner shop. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - mostly coffee but with some chocolate. Taste - more of the same. Enough chocolate to make it pleasant. Palate - surprising body for the ABV. Creamy with a dry finish. Overall - not a coffee in beer fan and often doubt the virtues if weak stout but a pat on the back to the brewer for making this interesting yet balanced.
