Vibrant Forest Brewery Necropolis (8.2%)

Necropolis is a Double Black India Pale Ale.
Which is a mouthful to say.
And it’s a mouthful of fun.
Pouring an inky black, the aroma is blackcurrant and cherry, soft and round and pulpy.
There’s a big treacle tart and honey, Belgian waffle and brown bread malt, damsons and plums, coffee, toffee and toast malt body.
It’s a great big chewy delight, the kind of thing you’d love to find in an Imperial Porter, but here it’s attacked on all sides by a barrage of hoppy goodness.
There’s lemon bonbons, rhubarb and custard, grapefruit, orange marmalade, mango, pumpkin and passion fruit that makes for a fresh and fruity delight that is pushed along by a gin clear alcohol warmth that makes the finish bright and keen and bitter.
