My #12BeersOfXmas 2015 – Day 8 : The Queen Is Not Dead – Revolutions Brewing Co.

Get those handsome brutes on the label eh?

Brewed by Revolutions prior to #ISBF2015 and one of the stars of the festival, I’ve had this Imperial Stout twice on Cask now and it impressed me hugely on both occasions. When Andrew dropped a bottle off for me, it simply HAD to be one of the 12.

Loaded with that most marmite of hops Sorachi Ace, this black beer has a thin beige collar, nice carbonation releasing an aroma like a bitter chocolate Bounty bar, the Sorachi mellowing to coconut.

Oh my! This is LUSH! Big with dark roasted barley and smooth as silk. As you might expect, in the mouth there is bitter chocolate. Y been there is something like a fruit and nut bar, but with dark chocolate.

Next mouthful, that coconut tropicality moves up and caresses the tongue finishing with tingling around the mouth and a chocolate coating on the tongue.

Beautiful!
