Name: Newtown Nemesis
Brewery: Smack! Republic Brewing Company

Rating: 4.25/ 5
Newtown Nemesis (great name!) seems to be the crowning jewel in Smack!’s range. This is a bourbon, vanilla infused stout. Just appreciate that for a minute.
We’re looking at a deep chocolate colour, creamy off-white head and then the vanilla nose. The initial sip is full bodied, but not heavy. There’s a definite coffee flavour in there too. But the aftertaste has that bourbon and vanilla again. This is a stout to taste. It is rich and dessert like. Everything you need in an infused stout.
