“EVERYTHING IS LOST”...reads the ‘art’ in the background, as seen in the background at the Frieze Sculpture Park in Regents Park. A few days ago I reviewed Northern Monk’s 10% throat burner that is their ‘Double Heathen’ DIPA and today coming at you is the can I had the same evening, this one a @northernmonk
“Pecan Pie Strannik’ Imperial Stout, also 10%. So, perhaps you realise now why I chose this background; you drink either of these two brews and everything is lost because they’re strong as fuck and you’ll most likely lose your memory, keys wallet...you know the drill.
This Imperial Stout is super smooth like some kind of alien velvet - it’s absolutely wonderful. Like the DIPA it has a strong taste but unlike the DIPA you wouldn’t know it. The alcohol is there but you hardly notice it in comparison. It’s uber slick in the mouth and very, VERY tasty. Flavour wise, it’s complex but very balanced, bringing waves of decadent caramel with a pecan nutty, maple flavour and a touch of treacle. Then there’s the coffee. Wow. Beautiful throughout, you can’t miss or ignore it. It’s like a sweet, full bodied espresso shot, only in a 440ml measure! A dark, sumptuous and rich Imperial Stout packed with lactose to remind you, as Northern Monk say, as the pecan pie your nana used to make! One definitely for sipping on rather than downing as we did due to the bottle shop we were in was closing! Highly recommendable.
