ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from Redmonds. Lush black pour with scarlet highlights, tan head dissipates a but quick but laces the glass nicely. Chocolate, dark fruits and a hint of smoke in the aroma. Lush flavour, big dark chocolate gives some bitterness and heavy roasted malt for some chewiness, dark ripe cherries, salty toward the finish, with some warming alcohol. Mouthfeel is super lush, coats the tongue, finish rolls on forever. Brilliant.

Bottled. Pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is tobacco, some mild roasted notes, a bit alcohol, ripe fruits and some slight toasted notes. Flavour is toasted malts, some tobacco, ripe fruits, some mild toffee/fudge and a bit alcohol sweetness. Mellowly balanced. It’s a while since I last had an imperial stout this tobaccoish.

Fin (8256) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
On tap at Craft, Clerkenwell Saturday 7th February 2015 Pours black with a filmy beige head. This drinks far easier than it should considering the hefty abv. A dark fruity tang with some sticky dates and fig perhaps, tricky rating this whilst stood up, suffice to say the beer is good stuff. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
