Tartarus – Coffee Abaddon Imperial Stout
Tartarus are a tiny nano-brewery from Horsforth near Leeds. There’s nothing I enjoy more about running Otter’s Tears than being able to support the small independents. Tartarus make that easy as they brew the beer styles I love.
This is a 17% Russian Imperial Stout loaded with 15 different malts with dark brown, demerara and jaggery sugars. Patiently conditioned resulting in a rich, dark and extremely flavourful beer.
We took half of the last batch of Abaddon and aged it on @thirdwaveroast Colombian coffee, giving this beer an espresso twist. This pairs nicely with the sweet and complex malt profile of this monster stout.
