Thousands Of Evils is a sexy blend of all the the Stouts that Turning Point barrel aged in 2019.
Just typing that seems like a silly, playful, pointless but exciting thing to do, and that’s one of the main reasons that I love Cameron and the Turning Point team so much.
They’re not afraid to be silly for the sake of finding something super.
And so Thousands Of Evils is hefty with chocolate and brandy snaps, old varnished oak sideboards, leather sofas, honey doused waffles, whisky and brown bread, treacle tart, vanilla ice cream, plum jam and rolling tobacco.
There’s a deep woodiness, damp and warm and sensuous, that floats around in the background of the beer, and a chewy Crunchie honeycomb and apple sauce sweetness in the finish.
Brilliantly silly, you really need to get hold of this beer.
