Cloudwater Special Edition Imperial Stout
Firstly, apologies yet again. I’ve been a bit slow off the mark writing some of these blogs but I’m officially finished with university. It’s all over – 4-years of University; about £50,000 in debt – and in need of a job!
Anyway, a couple of weeks or so ago it was my 23rd birthday so, as we were in lockdown, and I wasn’t going anywhere, I decided to treat myself to a bottle of Cloudwater’s Special Edition Imperial Stout that I’d been saving. Brewed in 2016, yum. And what a treat!
It was thick and rich and chocolaty and coffee and whiskey flavoured all rolled into one drink. It had really good body and the typical imperial stout mouthfeel – like a meal in a glass! Highly recommended, if you can find a bottle and you’re willing to pay the price.
Beers like this don’t come along that often. Mum and I really enjoyed it – but Dad thought he’d tasted better. As regular readers will know, he doesn’t actually drink though he does taste every now and again so what does he know?
