I wouldn’t call myself a fan of sweeter beers. Vitesse Noir is an Imperial Stout from Hardknott and it could change my preconceptions. This beer is inky black with a thin brownish head. It smells like good strong coffee. In contrast to the Coisbo Imperial Stout though this one is a far sweeter brew. It tends more to the mocha end of the coffee spectrum. Rich, smooth and creamy it went down a treat. At 11% you’ll only need the one and take your time with it…
Is it a beer or is it a chocolate pudding?

I always knew that one day I would leave the top on the bottle. Your blog gives me a way of continuing to enjoy the thought of the good things about brewing without having to do the drinking myself. You have good taste and write well on the subject.
Thank you Simon, for your kind words. I’m flattered. I wouldn’t consider myself to be in the same league as you.
And that is very kind of you.
Is that Father Ted Crilley’s house in the background?
It is indeed. It’s a little off the beaten track, though I’m sure that wouldn’t put you off!
A friend from Uni played Father Walton in one episode. I believe it is in Clare but don’t know where.
Yes it’s pretty much in the middle of the Burren, I may keep an eye out for Father Walton when I’m watching the repeats so!
