Roath Brewery Death Junction (4.2%)

This beer has been sitting in my fridge for a while for no other reason than the label hasn’t caught my eye.
Finally this evening I decided I’d give it a go and I’m really pleased that I have as this is a super little Stout with a hint of vanilla.
Death Junction (terrible name, even if it is an historical place close to the brewery) pours a deep purple brown and smells of chocolate and damson jam.
The malting is big and round and rich and chewy, with coffee and treacle tart, honey, chocolate and shortcake, and there’s the crunch of autumnal leaves and maple syrup from the hops.
The addition of vanilla to the brew adds an earthy richness and makes for a beer with a satisfyingly round finish.
