Brewery: Crew Republic
Bottle Size: 330ml
Taste:Powerful malty flavour, with coffee and chocolate hints
Colour:The blackest stout in recent memory
Aroma:Chocolate, coffee, malty scent
True to its name, Roundhouse Kick lets you know it’s there. A powerful aroma and strong flavourings really do hit you, but not in a bad way.
The malty overtones don’t hide the coffee and chocolate hints, but blend nicely together to give a kind of balance I didn’t expect of a strong stout like this.
In short, this is a good beer. Its above average, but not sensational. I’m giving this a 7, but it’s a strong 7. It’s one I’d like to revisit, for certain.
