3.78/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

330ml bottle at The Local Pub, Athens.

Appearance: Darkness black colour with a nice brown head, which lasted for maybe a minute and left some clouds on the surface.

Smell: OH MY!!! Dark chocolate, lots of espresso and hints of vanilla, especially when the beer got a little warmer!! Maybe some notes of blackcurrant.

Taste: Dark chocolate at the front! When it got warmer the coffee and the vannila notes were filling the mouth, leaving the chocolate on the back.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, maybe a little too much for the style, but not in a bad way. Medium to full body.

330ml bottle.- from Cerveceria Freiburg (Barcelona) Black color headed by tan foam. Creamy & lasting crown leaves spots on sides. Fudge chocolate, vanilla, toasted,caramel & roasted coffee aromas. Gentle toasted upfront rounded by chocolate & vanilla on the backside. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous texture. ABV is shown as a gentle heat. Slight bitter punch & a very subtle fruity notes in the middle along with dark cocoa linger in a sweet finish. Complex aftertaste where coffee driness touched by hoppiness are swept out by brown sugar notes.

So my love affair with Wild Beer Co. shifts to another level. It began with Ninkasi and continued with the sours, and now this is my first imperial stout, and wow, it’s a beauty. Bottle bought in Market row Wines, Brixton. Colour is very dark brown, thick body, tan head. Nose is plasticky, lactic, dark fruit, prune, smooth chocolate, no yeastiness. Lots of milky chocolate and alcohol. Taste again is rich smooth dark chocolate, syrupy chocolate spread, cocao dust, thick luscious chocolatey body, creamy texture and mouthfeel, hints of prune and dark fruit. This is fantastic. Like liquid alcoholic chocolate. This is how I like my imperial stouts. Nose is restrained but flavour is stunning. Mouthful nice and oily chocolate. Wow.

Wildebeest – an Imperial Russian Stout with a twist, it could be called an Imperial Espresso Chocolate Vanilla Stout. After taking expert advice from the Tincan Coffee Co and the Chocolate Tart we enhanced the beer with Valrhona cocoa nibs, 500 vanilla pods (thanks mum for your help with those!) and a beautiful Columbian coffee. It could be called a dessert in a glass, beautifully rich and satisfying, at 11% maybe it’s a low alcohol alternative to an after-dinner liqueur?

Beer is not just meant for refreshment. Some beers can be ideal for contemplation and speculation, the liquid equivalent of the lotus position. Such a beer is Wildebeest, a rich, elegant, creamy, soothing confection of aromas and flavours that can only improve with time.

Warning: Wildebeest is best enjoyed sipped from your favourite brandy snifter, whilst sitting comfortably in a plush armchair. Preferably next to a roaring fire while the weather does its worse outside.

Currently maturing in the tank. Available in 330ml bottles towards the end of November.
