THIRSTY CROW ROAD 2 RUIN 2012

Thirsty Crow Road 2 Ruin 2012. I’d heard people raving about this beer for a while. Then out of the blue the Local Taphouse in Sydney put a keg on tap as part of their Dark Side of the Local event to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of The Moon album.

The cellarman had put a keg aside of the ROAD 2 RUIN 2012 he picked up at the Sydney Craft Beer Week 2012. Finally there was a reason to crack it open. It's described as being an Imperial Espresso Stout.

It’s jet black with a dark brown espresso-like head. Beautiful rich dark malt and coffee aroma. Full mouthfeel, smooth with a sweet milk choc flavour. It’s like a chocolate milkshake with a soft coffee flavour. At 10.3% and such a sweet flavour it could be mistaken for a liqueur rather than a beer.

 

7/10
