This week we take a look at Nirvana Brewery’s Stout offering; Kosmic Stout. With a toasted malt base, vanilla and chocolate mixed in, this isn’t your typical stout.
Pouring is easy producing very little head. One thing i like about drinking a good stout is the head on top which gives you a foamy moustache after your first sip. Fortunately what this beer lacks in head makes up for in the flavour.
This beer is not for sipping. It’s to be drunk and enjoyed. There is quite a lot of fizz within this beer making it not a very smooth drink as the bubbles tingle your mouth reminding me of the popular candy Space Dust which I think is very fitting considering the name of this beer.
The vanilla flavour does come through pretty well along with the toasted malt base however I don’t get much chocolate in the flavour.
Overall I’d say this is a good stout offering which has qualities that set it apart from the crowd to produce a unique Stout. If you like your stout’s, I’d definitely give this a try.
