Osprey87 (1946) - WALES - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle into snifter. Pours thick, small brown head. Smells pretty good - burnt chocolate, oil, smoke. Body is medium to full, not foamy. Taste is smoke, very smooth, charcoal, some dark chocolate. No trace of the alcohol. Some hops in the aftertaste. Very good imperial stout. Well done.

BenH (2445) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle. Black with tan head. Smokey, ashy burnt aroma, some licorice. Taste is very rich, smokey, ashy, coffee, chocolate, licorice, meaty. Heavy and sweet. Nice

McNeillR (1276) - SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Soft tan head, thick black body, dry woody nose - little depth. Stern imperial, prickly booze without being laced with masses of flavour. Smoothly drinkable, but no kick to this. Very well put together, a solid imperial blueprint. I hope they’ve chucked some in barrels of a whiskey variety.

A nice enough drink, but not very subtle. The alcohol is overly present at the cost of the subtler flavours. Looks good. OK

SarkyNorthener (2244) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. Black beer with a medium mocha head that gradually reduces to ring around the side of the glass. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla and pontefract cake. Taste is chocolate and pontefract cake again along with some wood, dark berries and a hint smoke. Smooth and full bodied on palate, a little sticky. Another excellent beer from Beavertown.

A very nice imperial stout, more towards the sweet +puddingy than the dry side.
