Tap at Arbor Ales, Bristol - Pours jet black with a small tanned head. Medium carbonation.Nice lacing. Aroma - roasted coffee and malt notes. Taste - sweet, smooth, coffee, light malts, light bitter finish. Lovely forward coffee stout.

Bottled and possibly bottle conditioned
A lot of thought has gone into this beer - we’ve been working on the recipe for well over a year! So, it started out as an Imperial Stout. How about a few oats? How about a hell of a lot of oats?! Some smoked malt maybe - just a little. All good so far. A few specialty German grains should round off the mash quite nicely. Then onto the boil. With our very own coffee roaster here in Bristol, it seemed a shame not to use them. We played around with a few samples from Brian Wogan Coffee and finally settled on some freshly roasted Brazilian Santos beans. Awesome coffee! Just needed something a bit chocolaty to finish it off. How about some chocolate? How about some organic raw cacao nibs?! Job done. Just a long slow fermenation and conditioning period and the result is outstanding.
