Nose
Surprisingly fruity at first (juicy Caribbean fruits), but then light coffee and liquorice emerge along with biscuity malt.
Palate
Smooth and loaded with more juicy pineapple and other tropical fruits. There's plenty of sweet malt and yet also a notably bitter roasted grain element, plus a smack of liquorice.
Finish
Bitter, hoppy and dry with roasted grains.
Comment
A full-bodied, full-flavoured recreation of the imperial Russian stout style, but with a tropical fruit note and a rather intense, bitter finish.
