my kind of stout - like coopers stout ramped up a few notches. fruity and tarry and bitter and thick, with a nice subtle leafy hop background, without the citric alcohol/cohumulone kick in the finish most US stouts go in for. the fruitiness is provided by the yeast not the hops - plums and pears rather than grapefruit and pine. it all hangs together and blends seamlessly in the mouth. lovely stuff, not trying too hard and not that complex but doing the basic stouty flavours really honestly and really really fantastically well. just lacking a really amazing 3D aroma. things are looking good this winter with this and black bear stout readily available round here.

Bottle from the Bristol Beer Emporium. Pours black with a purple tint, and an average sized tan colour lasting head. Aroma is a heady mix of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits and treacle. Medium sweetness, quite heavy on roasted bitterness. Medium/full bodied with a slick texture. Finish is of bitter dark chocolate, dry, but with a creamy edge. Quite delicious. hackobock (4029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2016
