Name checking a Tom Waits album in your blurb will always get my attention, and so it is with Big Joe.
The can mentions “Nighthawks At The Diner” as a jumping off point for this pancake and maple syrup, coffee and treacle Imperial Breakfast Stout, and it’s a brilliant place to begin because that is what this beer is all about.
Lashings of honey coated pancakes, sticky maple syrup, chocolate cookie dough, brandy snaps and black Colombian coffee slosh about in your face while the sharp herbal zing of Magnum hops brings a much needed fresh slap of lime zest and steely herbal leaves to the party.
This is a big beer, a boozy beer, a drunkenly slurred poem of a beer, not unlike the usic of Tom Waits circa “Nighthawks At The Diner”.
