3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at chriso’s Easter 2015 tasting - London. Cheers to Colin for this one I think. Pours black-brown with a thick, tan foam head. The aroma holds milk chocolate and lots of ashy roast. Medium sweet flavor with subtle peat notes, some earthy bitterness, cocoa, smoke. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish with further chocolate impact, subtle maple accents, moderate ashy roast and scorched earth. Not bad.

Great beer thanks to Andrew. Pours a pitch black color with a medium brown head. A big sweet nose with roasted malts, some brown sugar and dark fruit. Ash, dark roasted malts, caramel, some vanilla, oil, more heavy roast. Damn nice. A gentle palate. Excellent.

500ml bottle, pours dark tan with a high froth three finger head which dissipates. Beautiful malt chocolate smooth coffee aroma. Slight carbonation with a beautiful full flavoured taste of malts and smooth chocolate, sweet with little bitterness. I enjoyed it with red meat. A classic, high,y recommended.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poor choice labeling this as a Russian Imperial Stout, anyone who has explored craft beer or beer in general for more than a day will know that there are a few red flags here. First being the 7% abv, not going to cut it, some regular stouts are more than that. Second is the watery pour, Dark Lord, Speedway, etc. are like tarmac pouring into the glass, this was more like Guinness Extra Stout. Third is the flavor, again watery, thin mouthfeel, some roasted coffee and hints of chocolate, but nowhere near the complexity of a well made RIS. Disappointing on most levels, this shows a lack of care on the brewer and a lack of respect for those that would buy their products.
