What an amazing stout!
I’ve heard a lot of good things about Thornbridge brewery. A lot of beer geeks rate them towards the top of their Best Brewer lists. I’ve not come across much of their brews but that is going to change…
Bourbon oak imperial stout
This is a strong ale; thick and smooth. Doesn’t have a creamy head like Guinness, this is like silk in a glass – and the flavours! I usually can’t taste a lot of what they sugggest on the bottles. But with Eldon I got a clear roasted coffee and chocolate start with a sweeter, caramel finish.
Smooth, strong, bitter sweet. Fantastic!
