Lump of Coal Dark Holiday Stout, Ridgeway Brewing, UK, 8% abv
Well, you're certainly not a bad boy if you receive this lump of coal in your stocking!
This pours a dark, brown-black, with a nice fluffy tan head. There's a big malty smell - fruity and sweet.
The taste is also a big punch of malty sweetness, followed by some alcohol, then gentle toast. It finishes fairly dry. Really yummy!
