Salt Beer Factory Isobar (11.8%)

Brewed in collaboration with Atom Brewing and using Cacao, Vanilla Pods, Demerara sugar and caramel, Isobar is hefty Imperial Stout.
It pours as black as pitch and smells of rum and raisin ice cream, sticking to the side of your glass as you raise it to take a swig.
The malting is thick and gloopy, with toasted brown bread dripping with salted butter and runny honey, treacle tart and freshly brewed black coffee, while there’s a fresh snap and crunch of red woodland leaf litter, pine resin and nettle tea from the hops.
The vanilla and caramel, cacao and sugar build as you drink, and boosted by the alcohol create a warm and boozy pudding, sweet and sticky, sexy and satisfying, until you reach the lightly salted peanut butter of the finish that forces you to take another swig.
