Fierce Beer Imperial Café Racer (8.5%)

Brewed in collaboration with Devil’s Peak of South Africa, this is the best beer I’ve had from Fierce.
In essence it’s a revamped version of their Café Racer Porter, but most importantly it’s rather good.
Pouring an inky black the smell is creamy coffee and chocolate ice cream, and taking a swig you find that that’s how the beer begins, its lactose making it feel thick and smooth and creamy, and working alongside the vanilla to create a really ice creamy sensation.
There’s some toffee and popcorn, honey and brown bread from the malts, they’re round and warm and chewy, and they’re bolstered by the addition of Kenyan coffee that adds a rich woody flavour while the hops provide a little hedgerow pithiness and a splash of orange juice and lemon zest.
In the finish the lactose and vanilla come back into play, making the beer end like a soft sweet pudding with a good alcoholic kiss.
