Ridgeway - Bad King John 6%
This is tonight’s tipple; currently available in Sainsburys ‘Great British Beer Hunt’ contest. This is a bottled conditioned black ale, but is pretty much a stout. Pours deep black with a nice coffee coloured head that soon dissipates. Smells almost sweet. The flavour is bursting with coffee, chocolate - reminds me of Bourneville … Mmmm. Moreishly drinkable. All you’d expect from a quality coffee stout! Hats off to this one, hope it does well in the competition!
