I've already got a lot of love for Omnipollo, especially their darker beers. Texas Pecan and Rocky Road from the Ice Cream Series collaboration with Buxton were great and Yellow Belly, again brewed with Buxton, is one of my favourites of all time.

Lorelei is a coconut maple toast imperial porter brewed by Omnipollo along with Siren Craft Beer and Dave Strachan, who won after submitting his coconut porter to a home brew competition. It's distinctive bottle design has been all over instagram and the beer has garnered a lot of praise.... so lets see if it lives up to the hype?....

It pours almost jet black, with a thick glossy appearance and just the hint of a caramel coloured head.

The aroma is stunning; maple syrup, vanilla, burnt caramel, hazelnut all intermingle to produce one of the most luxuriously smelling beers I've ever known.

Unbelievably everything from the nose carries through into the flavour, along with dark chocolate and a hint of coconut. Yet despite everything that's present the sweetness is not over powering, with the finish actually full of cocoa bitterness and a welcome hit of booziness.

There is no doubt that Lorelei is worthy of the hype; its thick, luxurious, full of flavour and incredibly satisfying. Omnipollo really do rule the roost when it comes to this style of beer... and experiencing how good this is has just made me even more excited about the bottle of Noa in my stash.
