A black beer with a red shine and a dying brown head. The aroma is sweet with powerful notes of roasted malt as well as lighter notes of chocolate, alcohol, and berries. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, wood, and prunes, as well as roasted malt. The mouthfeel is very smooth.

From the cellar of a kind Londoner. Poured jet black with thin head. Nice roasty aroma with vinous notes. Flavor beginning to thin a little, but still fairly rich coffee, toast, and oak flavors. Just a hint of red wine gave it a curious, almost wild-yeast undertone. Nice stout and a great nightcap surrounded by sleepy dogs.

#1399. St George’s Thing. Roasty slightly fruity aroma with a bit of marmite. To taste this is full bodied with lots of roasted malt and quite a noticeable coconut character I thought. Beer of the festival/graveyard for me.

Bottle at St George’s Cemetary RB Gathering. Thanks to Kook for this one. Black beer with dark beige head. Nice Imp Stout. Good thick tarry beer. Good flavour with some toffee. Smooth for its strength. Lots of dark roasted malts as you would expect.

very dark black colour, little foam with big bubbles; aroma of prune and hazelnut with a toasted coffeish touch; very creamy with a medium to full body and a moderate bitterness; moderately dry, woody and nutty, bready finish - dangerously drinkable because the 8% are not noticable; thanks to Laurent Mousson for this one

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Absolute black color; thick creamy head. Wonderful aroma, very strong: fine roasted malts, coffee, liquorice, Stilton (!); very cheesy; persistent (maybe worth a 10)
Very good mouthfeel (even if a bit dry at the end); lovely harmony, malt coffee roasted malt and a light cheesy touch. The final is not extremely hopped, but a share of bitterness comes from the roasted malt.

Smells and looks like a good cup of coffee in there. Understated British style imperial stout. Middle thick, initially some mustiness and dryness until flavour coats the throat, coffeeish, nicely carbonated. A gift from Warren Becker of New York City and Gotham Imbiber fame.
