Meet Spresso, our ink black coffee stout forged with chocolate malt and midnight oil coffee concentrate from our pals at Climpson & Sons. What’s the secret ingredient? Concentrate, said Climpson & Sons, but it’s hard to focus when you’ve lost yourself in the tidal pull of this malty mesmerising stout.
FLAVOURS & TASTE PROFILE
We’re talking roasted coffee beans, swimming among tones of sweet dark fruit & cocoa boosted by a caffeine kick.
It’s smooth. Smooth like slotting into a parallel park on the first try. Smooth like catching a glass of milk that’s slid down the entire length of the bar. Smooth like shooting a ball of wrapping paper straight into the recycling bin during the office secret Santa.
A COFFEE STOUT
The following are the ONLY ways to drink Spresso:
- Fireside. Or fireside, with friends. Or fireside, with friends, but when you’ve sent them to fetch more wood because you’ve just poured a glass of Spresso and you want to let it settle.
- Served to guests at the mid-winter launch of your festive poetry anthology, in paperback.
- Whilst staring out the window of an alpine chalet, set deep in the tundra at the height of a snowstorm as you listen to the shipping forecast on catchup.
HOW TO TRY SPRESSO
Harness your very best snow hounds and mush on over to your furthest Waitrose where you can grab a can right off the shelf (and signal your sophistication to the other shoppers).
Or, give the dogs the night off, and jet over online to stock up for a season of dark and stormy hibernation. Spresso also makes a great Xmas gift, because you can grab a bundle that includes a sack of Climpson & Sons coffee beans too... for when they like beer AND coffee, but you don’t like them enough to get two gifts.
