Opaque black - brown beer with a big fluffy tan head. Palate is viscous, airy and a little soft. The dark malt is soft and a little creamy. Dry coffee bitterness provides contrast. Trace of brandyish alcohol spice. Sweetish lactose and light plummy fruits. Semi dry finish. Overall quite a tangy beer and it could use a little less tang. Nice though. Need a BA version!

Bottle at home 27th October 13. Very good imperial, not amazing, but good. Pours an elegant drink, neat head. Aroma is smoke, tobacco some cocoa, a little liquorice. Taste is rich and balanced and the palate is smooth as velvet. Good stuff

Bottle. Black with a small head. Medium body and quite powerful. Nice complexity of tastes. Nothing stunning but very pleasant to drink.

The_Osprey (3031) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - 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.

McNeillR (1677) - Edinburgh, 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
