Blacklight Banana Imperial Stout – ABV 9.2%
This collaboration between Siren and Garage Project is a seriously-smooth drinking imperial stout with aromas of banana and chocolate.
Look: Dark black with a tan head.
Aroma: Banana and chocolate with rich dark molasses.
Taste: A creamy mouthfeel and flavours of malt, banana and treacle combine to give a slightly burnt bitterness to balance out the sweetness.
Food pairing: A great beer for drinking with desserts. Try pairing it with the burnt, creaminess of a creme caramel.
Verdict: Blacklight Banana was brewed as part of the 2016 Rainbow Project. We just wish Siren had brewed more of it.
