Colonial Inquest 2020 Imperial Stout 375ml
"Colonial Inquest" Imperial Stout makes its return for 2020. The 4th edition in the series, the 2020 imperial stout is inspired by the Belgian Trappist style of dark beers. Flavour notes of honey, dark fruit and molasses take centre stage on the aroma and palate with the Belgian origin yeast strain adding layers of fruit and spice to the malty foundation. English grown hops finish this off with an assertive earthy bitterness that balances out the sweet malt and brandy -like alcohol warmth.
This year’s inquest is inspired by some of the first strong dark ales many of us tried, long before craft beer became popular. Although Colonial still declare it an Imperial Stout, they’ve taken a leaf out of the Trappist book by using some of the same ingredients made popular by Belgian monks. The Colonial brewers have chosen barley that’s been malted in a specific way to produce honey, dark fruit and molasses like notes then fermented this with Belgian origin yeast strain, which adds layers of fruit and spice to this malty foundation. English grown hops finish this off with an assertive earthy bitterness that balances out the sweet malt and brandy -like alcohol warmth.
