Bottle at the Anderson, cheers Jim! Pours an opaque black with a large ashen head that shrinks down to a few millimeters and leaves a dark lacing on the glass. Aroma dominated by dark malt with a little citrus hop. Drinks very easily for it’s strength. Bitter coffee, tannin, tobacco, chocolate and smoke. Very good

Pours a stout black with one finger of tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate, sweet. Taste of chocolate and hoppiness. Slight bitterness. The aroma seems pretty strong it keeps going up my nose when I drink it.

Huge burnt coffee and chocolate nose, big flavours quite hoppy and bitter but rich and sweet and malty at the same time, great balance good carbonation and the %10 abv works well to thicken it out.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance is jet black, with a half-finger fluffy light brown/tan head. Leaves a muddy film around the glass. Aroma- rich chocolate, brownies, espresso coffee, vanilla fudge, lots of roast malt, liquorice undertones, leather. Taste- loads of dark, roast malt, black coffee, dark, bitter chocolate, burnt treacle, chocolate biscuit, hints of vanilla and dark fruit towards the finish. As it warms up more leathery and tobacco smoke characteristics emerge. Mouthfeel is clingy and a bit fudgy, with a very lengthy and satisfying finish. Excellent stuff.

Keg at IMBC. Dark brown. Aromas of dark roast, sweet chocolate. Tastes dryish roast, gentle coffee an cocoa. Very good stout but lacks some elements to stand out more. Or then I just had too good stuff that night.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a quickly fleeting, thin caramel head. Aromas of coffee, burnt toast, vanilla, butter, and a bit of smoke. Alcohol aroma comes out as it warms. Palate is oily with a fine, muted carbonation. Good body. Taste of bitter chocolate and salted caramel. Bitter, slightly sticky syrup finish. Dumb name, good stout.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very rich with Soy sauce, Hershey’s Chocolate syrup & prunes. Black as a cloudy night on an eclipse, I had to turn on a few more lights after I opened this beer, it sucked the light out of the room. Head? I don’t think so, a few reddish brown bubbles in a tar pit of blackness. Thick & chewy, a liquified decadent dessert, death by chocolate with a splash of Brandy, pretty damned amazing! IStout? Ay caramba! Rich, luscious, innovative, it leaves me at a loss for words. I’m in love......
