COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Say hello to the Bearded Lady, our uncompromisingly big and beautiful Imperial Stout. Born from our Dark Arts recipe she uses masses of magical malts to deliver deep chocolate, rich coffee and vinous berry flavours all complemented by a balanced yet subtly spicy hop profile. Powerful, robust, intriguing; yet decadently smooth and sumptuous, the lady demands respect…

330ml bottle takeout from Friends of Ham. Drunk many months later. Woody, coffee aroma. Massive taste of course.. lots of dark fiery malts, chocolate, coffee and bitter spice. Smooth and surprisingly drinkable for the ABV. Lovely stuff.

yngwie (13948) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. It pours a black body under a dense, finger-thick dark beige head. Roasted malts, coffee, some dark chocolate, licorice and wood on the nose. Alcohol too. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, with a pleasant carbontion. Quite sweetish. Roasted malts, hoppy pine cones and resins, toffee, molasses and some hoppy bitterness. Lasting finish with alcohol and roasted malts. Pretty nice this one, but it’s a bit unbalanced. 140717
