Upfront Brewing Co. Ahab (6%)

Now this I like.
I like this a lot.
Ahab is a solid stout that pours an India ink blue black with an inviting foamy head and a smell of prunes and rubber balls.
The malting is big and round and chewy, fathoms deep with treacle tart, honey roasted cashews, burned toast and miles and miles of freshly brewed espresso.
There’s also a sexy slap of orange marmalade and crunchy red leaf litter from the hops that adds a swish of sparkly lemon sherbet and woody rolling tobacco to the beer, and this leads you by the hand into a finish that’s sticky and sweet with rum and raisin chocolate and edged with a hint of bitterness.
