Liquorice and coal tar soap.
How about that?
Pressure Drop’s Imperial Brown Stout is absolutely superb.
Pouring an inky black, the smell is rum and raisin, honey and cardboard.
This is one hell of a big chewy beer and it’s all about the malts, filling your face with treacle tart, tarmac, walnut wardrobes, worn leather satchels, beef stock and heather honey.
There might be some hops in here too, which will be the steely herbal leafiness and the dry pithy garden border edge that provides a much needed bitterness to the sticky burned brown sugar finish, but they’re not overly important as this beer is all about being big and sweet, chewy and boozy.
