The second in Signature’s series of limited beers is a rather impressive Imperial Stout.
It sits treacle thick in my glass, its cappuccino head all creamy and inviting, while the smell of stewed fruit, rubber balls and coffee drifts up to me.
Anthology’s malting is where it’s at with this beer, heavy with treacle tart and pecan pie, there’s honey and salted praline, espresso and plums all working together to bring you a deep and satisfying freshly baked cake experience.
The hopping adds some much needed zing, with lemon zest and hazel leaves, orange marmalade and rolling tobacco brightening the beer while its dark and dirty brandy booziness drags you willingly down into the Beery abyss.
Very good indeed.
