The Porterhouse have brought back their Celebration stout. I missed out on it last time so I was eager to try it. At €2.50 each (per 4) from Drinkstore I can't go wrong, especially when there is a deal like buy 7 and get the 8th free.
This Imperial stout is all about the vanilla and caramel but there is a hefty burnt bitterness to it as well. It is truly lovely. This is a different beer than the last one though. This is 7% as opposed to 10%. There is a little liquorice hiding among the roast grains as well as some wood character. Not much coffee and a sort of winey or port like finish.
