Brouwerij Kees Double Shot Espresso Stout (11%)

There’s a lot of coffee in this little bottle of high octane beery magic.
A lot of coffee.
It’s woody and toasty, fruity and almost smoky.
But what it isn’t is overpowering.
Because our man at Kees has managed to tame the coffee, to balance it beautifully with sweet treacle tart, toasted brown bread, honey smothered pancakes and molasses from the malts and a much needed sharp snap of bitter and pithily dry hazel leaves and hedgerow, dandelion, aniseed and orange marmalade from the hops.
But with all that said, you can still feel the coffee pushed along by a hefty rum booze hit, prickling your synapses into life and making you feel awake while you get gradually more tipsy.
