Oso Brew Co. You Can’t Catch Me (11%)

You Can’t Catch Me is a Gingerbread Latte Imperial Stout, and it’s as good as it sounds.
Pouring thick and deep and dark, the aroma is heavy with boozy biscuits, think digestives doused in cherry brandy and you’ll not be far off.
Taking a swig, the beer is thick and chewy, sticking to your lips and coating the inside of your cheeks as you find rich coffee, a creamy vanilla milkiness, a little crackle of spicy root ginger and a slap of fresh herbal greenery that brightens everything up and stops it becoming too cloying.
The booze here is hefty, warm and heavy, round and unapologetically drunken, but never burning or acrid, it lets you know how big this beer is without ever taking over, and instead it pushes the joy of liquidised gingerbread biscuits along as you reach the beer’s satisfyingly warm and lightly spiced finish.
