The Nightmare Before Christmas Imperial Stout does really taste like a Christmas Pudding, especially the finish is something really out of the ordinary. It has a lovely dry and warming mouthfeel and the alcohol gives it a nice edge, though it is not as dominant as one may expect at 10% ABV
From the bottle...
I hate beers brewed with spices... Spiced beer is a god awful... HORRIBLE!... INEXPLICABLE...!!... THING!!! that should be fought with wooden stakes, silver bullets and garlic! But then again, there are exeptions to every rule... there are some pretty tasty beers out there which are brewed with spices... And given the fact that the brewers at Stronzo are brave adventurous souls who like to fight fire with fire - of course we had to give it a try. Christmas Pudding in a glass - enjoy!
