Beavertown – Holy Cowbell India Stout – 5.6%
From the magnificent Beavertown Brewery in Tottenham comes Holy Cowbell India Stout at 5.6%. Upon opening, you are greeted with a sweet stouty aroma with a high hop presence, like a very good black ipa. The pour is black, with good carbonic acid presence and head generation. An interesting particle presence is apparent in the beer. The taste is coffee, toffee, chocolate malt and a good punch of bitterness. Very full bodied for the ABV and an excellent mouth feel. Perhaps a bit too carbonated for your average stout, but quite a pleasure to behold.
