As cool as Huey Morgan of the Fun Lovin' Criminals and as smooth as Barry White - Brew York have taken everything great about their milk stout Tonkoko and beefed it up into this absolute belter of a beer. Coming in at 7.5% it's at certainly at the lower end of the ABV scale for imperial stouts but it certainly isn't lacking when it comes to flavour and mouthfeel.
On pouring you are treated to enticingly sweet aromas of nuts, chocolate and vanilla. On first sip you are treated to a rich, silky smooth mouthfeel and the flavours come through in waves. A big initial hit of tonka bean and coconut gives a lingering nutty taste that is complimented by waves of chocolate and vanilla. This really is a pleasure to drink. This decadent brew is the closest we've come to finding a 'session' imperial stout!
