Evolution In the Shadows
Collaboration with Cloudwater Brew Co.
Stout - Imperial / Double
Upfront tonka and vanilla. Mistaken purchase, as I'm admittedly not a fan of tonka*, and prefer stouts a little less sweet - but this is ok. - [* to me, I get a ketone / pear-drops aroma]

Bold nose of tonka beans, some coffee and dark chocolates, some caramel. On the palate, sweet and bold tonka flavors upfront, some phenols, caramel, followed by milk chocolates in the middle, more tonka past middle, residual phenols and roasted malts...Earned the Beer of the World (Level 22) badge!

Blimey, this is a big 'un! Rich, ripe fruits, coconut isn't too in yer face, thankfully, long brown sugar finish.

Hmmmmm. I want to like this but can’t get away from my first sniff & “PAINT!”. She said solvent with coconut, and spat it out. I said a bit acidic, a bit sweet. She said fruity detergent. I took it back & drank it anyway, fuck it.
Rich in coconut and tonka. Really boozy and strong. So good
