Beak Brewery Gatto (10%)

So this is an Imperial Triple Fruited Sour Cherry Stout.And I have to tell you that that collection of words really put me off.It read like a Craft Beer Geek’s wet dream.And so I left it in my fridge for a little while because I didn’t want to risk it.
But I have to tell you that this is a decent Imperial Stout.
OK, the aroma is a rather unpleasant acrid fruity petroleum smell, but there’s a really good treacle tart, toffee and coffee malt body that’s pushed along by the brandy warmth of the booze, and this is accompanied by the gentle slap of green herbal foliage from the hopping.
In the finish the cherries bring a fresh pulpy bite while the chocolate of the malts continue to build, making this beer feel like you are biting into a cherry liquor Christmas treat.
