Club of Slaughters Imperial Stout – ABV 8.8%

Vegan-friendly Stout, with a Vegan-unfriendly name.

Wylam describe this beer as an “electro narcosis of peat smoke pitch, dark cocoa and oiled black cardamon, rib rattle into subtle bolt gusts of port wine and espresso pursued by a dark cherry red grape skin tartness”

That may be easy for them to say; but here’s what we think:

Look: Dark black, with a creamy brown head.

Aroma: Roasted malts, with hints of smoky spice.

Taste: Rich and complex, with smoke, coffee, chocolate, cinammon and cardamom.

Verdict: “It’s Stout Jim, but not as we know it”.
