pouring black elixir

By havecamerawilltravel      
Big Imperial Stouts, made by Evin at the Kernel Brewery, Bermondsey. (if you're a foodie, check out Druid Street) But, Evin is fast becoming the most interesting brewer, brewery in the UK. I had the pleasure of working with him on an Imperial Stout, which is being poured above. An Imperial Stout, typically is around 8%, this bad boy was 12%, giving a rich, tarry, chocolate, molasses experience. This isn't your normal ale.

As for the photo: I was shot from hip height, processed from Raw, thru LR2, into PS4 - using a couple of presets in lightroom - I have a love of old film, probably Fuji, with a green/yellow/chartreuse hue - probably from a love of old national geographic type pics. So, the chance to "process" that way has been a recent flavour of choice.

Why are the glasses wet? always wash your beer glasses before you pour beer into them. Just cold, clean water... and a shake. Stops temperature increasing dramatically, and hopefully removes last of dishwasher, soap cleaner products that just kill beer.

I like the subdued tones, moody and atmospheric.
