The guys at Time and Tide were kind enough to send me out some of their beer, including this pre-release can of Domino. I'm ashamed to say that it's my first time drinking a white stout and it's left me cursing about what I've been missing!
On first glance Domino could easily be a pale ale, however it pours with a heavy body and whilst it is clear and golden, there is no noticeable carbonation. The head is small and white and offers a little bit of lacing.
The aroma is where it really starts to reveal it's true colours, with toffee and vanilla being the main attractions.
It has a thick unctuous mouthfeel, exactly what you'd want from an imperial stout.
Flavour wise, up front there's burnt caramel but this blends into a more creamy vanilla toffee, although any suggestion of sweetness goes almost straight away leaving a satisfying bitter finish. There's barely a hint of alcohol despite the 8.6% ABV.
Domino is another cracking beer from Time and Tide and has opened my eyes into a style I'm now itching to explore.
