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.
Serving type: bottle

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.
