Cloudwater Brew Co. Hibernate Imperial Stout (11.2%)

HibernatorThe label says that this beer will age well and I’m sure it will, but if you have a bottle then drink it now as it’s an absolute beauty.
Pouring an inky black with just a tiny wee head, the smell is chocolate coated plums on a well polished sideboard.
This is a beer all about its malts and boy are its malts good.
Massive chewy mouthfuls of treacle tart and tamarind, sticky toffee pudding, black coffee and honey bagels are washed down with a serious brandy heat, the hops adding a sharp and bitter herbal lemony bite that cuts across all the gloopy malty goodness in the most delightful way, leaving you with a clean palate in readiness for your next boozy mouthful.
