There can’t be many more appropriate places to enjoy a bottles of Black Peak Coffee Stout than on the shores of beautiful Lake Wanaka, nestled in the snow-capped mountains of Otago. Brewed locally by the Wanaka Beer Works. Their website is still under construction, but as my Uncle Ron used to say, “nothing any good was ever made in a hurry”.
One of the problems with not blogging immediately after a tasting is that you have to rely on notes. One of the problems with relying on notes, typed with fat fingers on to an iPhone is that you end with notes like “loco rice” and you haven’t got a clue what it means! Answers on a postcard please. Other tasting notes are more revealing. This is a beautifully creamy stout, with an aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans. On the tongue, there’s espresso, acetone and hint of black jelly babies. ‘Bloody lovely’ ……. according to the notes.
