Abbeydale Brewery Lost Souls (10%)

What a deep rich beer this is, Abbeydale’s 2017 Russian Imperial Stout, pours an impenetrable black with a little cappuccino head and smells of treacle, stewed plums and rubber balls.
There may well be masses of Galaxy, Chinook, Centennial and Columbus, and all that hop goodness may well provide some lovely orange marmalade, lemon zest and steely herbal leaves, but they’re little more than a bright flash next to the fathoms of malts that suck you down into their dark depths.
Treacle tart and molasses, rum and raisin chocolate, black coffee and redwood bark are made as sticky as road tar by thick gloopy honey, digestive biscuits and a blob of Marmite all build and build, boosted by a rich rum alcoholic heat that leads you into the pitch black of the sticky sexy finish.
