Of the beers I tried on my first visit to the English Ales Brewery this was my favorite.
Pours a deep dark black with a beige head. The head sticks for a while and there is an abundance of lacing down the glass. Scents are strong coffee. A good bitter scent wakes up the nostrils. A singed malt enlightens the nose. Some sweetness reveals itself to balance out the bitter coffee bite.
Flavors are very dry on the palate. A good strong coffee flavor is the main focus of this stout. Burnt malts and some medium bitter hops round it out. The coffee flavors take the forefront but there is a sweet molassas which hides at first and then appears to mediate the flavors. The bitterness relaxes as the ale warms. A real pleasing start to finish for this stout.
Mouthfeel is robust and full bodied. It stays strong until the end. A wonderful sipping stout for the slow drinker to be sure. This stout is a real treat and as it warms a bit it unfolds its true textures and becomes smoother with each passing minute. I really enjoyed this stout.
If your travels bring you to this brewery I recommend trying the Black Hound Stout.
