4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at Euston Tap. Beautiful thick oily black body with dense brown head. Aroma is less powerful than the taste but still rewarding in chocolate, coffee and raisin notes. Taste is rich and creamy, the typical imp stout palette served extraordinarily dense. Maybe a tad too alcoholic, still an opulent beer

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black with a milk chocolate head. Flowery liquor aroma cut with strong overtones of chocolate and toffee. Alcohol dominates taste (no surprise there!) but subdued by coffee and salted caramel notes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Euston tap. Viscous black caramel colour. Thin tan head. Good legs. Nose is fudge some treacle and higher alcohols. Flavour is sweet toffee boozy oak and alcohol. Melts on the tongue. Big barley wine sort of thing going on with some Belgian yeast influence. I enjoyed it even on a hot humid summers night.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Grape n Grind, Bristol. Very sweet nose with just a hint of hoppy freshness in it - mainly maple syrup and muscovado sugar. Pours sump oil black with no head or life at all. Flavour is rich, sweet and oily with tons of caramel and vanilla but this develops a bitterness as you sup that lingers into the finish. Lots of depth here and a very fine imperial stout, if a bit too sweet.

[keg, The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Black, heavy. Huge thick marzipan and raisin nose. Alcohol, prunes. Oily and viscous. Interesting. Only realised afterwards the sweetness I thought was marzipan must have been the maple syrup. A great imperial stout though, despite my flavour muddles

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines drank at home; pours almost jet black with a thin brown head, the aroma is coffee with a hint of chocolate, it has a silky smooth mouthfeel. It tastes of coffee with a fruity undertone. Love the bottle artwork and name.
