A delicious 12% imperial stout. Evil Twin covered all the bases with added coconut, chocolate, almonds, cookies, coffee & milk sugar. Rich. Smooth. Sticky sweet but not quite cloying. Some earthiness & light acidity. A liquid dessert
Rick I. is drinking an Experimental IPA #26 (Southern Tropic, Citra Cryo) by Superflux Beer Company at Isola di Birra
Interesting flavour from South African Southern Tropic hops. Lots of woodsy, dank, resinous pine needles with spicy pepper & floral lavender. Orange, melon, mango & lychee. The hops stand-out in a sea of particulate matter
