A rare brew in the Imperial Stout style with bags of hop character overlaid on spicy malt flavours brought out by the soft Bashall water.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 27, 2010
[500ml bottle, Booths, Preston] Dark brown with blackish tints on the pour with a decent white head. Aromas of fruity malt, chocolate and an alcohol whiff. On the palate, quite an initial sweetness but then a deep malt comes through and the finish is rich fruit and an unexpected alcohol whack (I only found out it was 6% after I’d finished the bottle) [27122010]

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Some chocolate and light caramel in the aroma but a little sterile. Healthy and quite lengthy. Round, sweet yet it lacks an intensity or depth. This is actually a delicious beer.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2009
0.5l bottle, pours dark, thick and stout-like with a large brown head. Aroma is malty and bitter, flavour is mild malt, plenty of oats and a mid-dark roasted bitter finish. Nice enough, but not special

A Mes rate: Cask at Chelmsford Beer Festival. Dark hazy brown colour. Creamy malt nose with some heavy caramel. Flavour is lovely sweet coffee malt with a nicely balanced hoppy finish. Has a strange yeasty almost champagne like note. Excellent length. Slightly watery in the palate but it still feels lovely. A really enjoyable beer with the same name as our street. :)

Cask Stillage at the Mill At The Pier, Wigan 05/03/2004 Black with some alcohol and fruit. Smooth on the palate with a slightly bitter chocolaty finish.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2004
Good beer, little trace of the alcohol which is always good. The taste is dry and quite full in body and has lots of black malt flavours - liquorice, burnt chocolate, burnt matches. Quite interesting and remarkably drinkable for a strong-ish beer. Being dark helps. (Cask @ Liverpool Beer Festival)
