Beer Advent Calendar 2013 Day 12- Anarchy Sublime Chaos

Good evening all. For the first time in a while I'm doing an advent calendar post on the corresponding day, quite the rarity indeed! Tonight's beer is Sublime Chaos, a Stout from Anarchy (Northumberland, UK) brewed with Ethiopian coffee beans and New Zealand hops. Review after the pic....

Sublime Chaos (7.0% ABV) pours a jet-black colour with a thick off-white head that maintains itself throughout drinking. Lovely piquant coffee aroma supported by yeast extract, roasted malt and a hint of sweetness. The first sip of this beer is quite tart with the coffee dominating everything, but each subsequent sip is more balanced and allows the nuances of the beer to come through nicely- coffee, toasted notes, dark chocolate, caramel, licorice, some subtle hop character and a light tartness in the finish. Wasn't expecting much with this one but it turned out to be a very good offering, highly recommended.
