Redwillow Brewery Restless (8.5%)

Subtitled “Good Morning Vietnam”, this is a super Imperial Vietnamese Coffee Milk Porter.
It’s thick and rich and smooth, pouring a fathomless purple brown with a bubbly cappuccino head, the smell is a deep rich and meaty black cherry and coal tar soap.
The malting is enormous, all bitter dark chocolate ice cream, honey and burned digestive biscuits, while the hops add a crunchy crisp maple syrup leaf litter stickiness that balances out the sweet vanilla ice cream smoothness of the lactose and the great big punch to the brains that is the woody rolling tobacco, roasted cashew nut and cherry stones of the coffee that permeates the beer, sparking your synapses and peeling back your eyelids as you hit the rum booze of the finish.
