Wet Dream

Evil Twin Brewing

Brown Ale - 6% ABV

 

If ever a beer lived up to it's name...

Well beer is wet and everyone has dreams - right? 😉

 

Moving swiftly on, this is another beer by Evil Twin brewing who have already made a name for themselves both sides of the Atlantic and there are good reasons for that.

 

They know what they are doing and more importantly (especially in this industry) they aren't afraid to experiment. This is noticeable in a lot of their beers and that includes today's offering.

 

Wet Dream is a Brown Ale with a difference. It is infused with coffee - and plenty of it!

 

To be more precise, they have used Kenyan Coffee Beans from 'The Coffee Collective' in Copenhagen, so expect good quality in this Roasted Brown Beer.

 

So, on to the pour and we can see a dark red colour ale with a lovely creamy head that sits nicely as crown on top.

 

On the nose we have a strong smell of coffee (as you would expect) with a hint of citrus just lining the sides of your nostrils.

 

It's easy to tell that there is going to be more to this beer than meets the eye and without any further ado, it's time to jump in (not literally!).

 

First impressions, the taste is nicely balanced. A beautiful underlying wave of expresso combines with a surprisingly hoppy, citrusy splash of goodness.

No bones about, this tastes delicious!

 

I enjoyed the first mouthful but it seems to be getting better with every sip! In comparison to other coffee infused beers that I've sampled, this one really works. 

 

It's a refreshing change to have the coffee flavours in a lighter, hoppier 'brown ale' rather than the more popular choice of a heavier, stronger Stout.

 

It succeeds in giving it a lighter 'earlier beer in a session' appeal and cries out for you to take another gulp and another gulp, and another gulp. Is it the coffee in this that I'm getting addicted to here or the beer?

 

Frankly - I don't care.

This is great!

 

Well done Evil Twin - a BIG thumbs up from Oh Beer Network 👍🏻
