Thirsty Crow Brewing Co: Road to Ruin

The Road to Ruin from Thirsty Crow is a ‘long black stout’ (according to the brewers) that was apparently brewed with 50 shots of espresso, while also packing a real punch at 10.3%. According to the beer’s description on Untappd, this is also known as an American imperial double stout.

We all unanimously found this to be a very well balanced and thoroughly enjoyable beer.

It’s got that barrel aged flavour. This is sensational. It’s smooth and silky.

– Ben

It’s really nice. It is really good. It’s smooth because of the nitro, it’s sweet, but not overly sweet, it’s got that barrel-aged flavour to it but it’s not punching you in the face, it’s not overly alcoholic, and it’s got a nice level of espresso to it. It’s a really well-balanced drink, I like it.

– Paul

It’s definitely got that coffee thing to it as well. This is exactly the style of beer I’m into.

He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells.
