Day 7

GOOD KING HENRY SPECIAL RESERVE 2013 by OLD CHIMNEYS BREWERY


11% Russian Imperial Stout

Day 6 and I’ve made it to the halfway point and if you’re still reading these you haven’t got many more to endure!

I’ve had this one a while now so thought it was high time to get into it (couldn’t wait any longer😉).

Straight from the cap pop I could tell I was in for a treat,with the oak and berries aroma seeping out the top.

It pours into a deep black holding up a small tan head with the aromas intensifying . The luxurious taste is provided with a slightly oily mouthfeel,but full of dark fruits,some chocolate and vanilla and a slight edge off the oak.

This annual beer release is eagerly awaited each year and it’s easy to see why…a really classy beer.
