erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 21, 2012
Sweet aroma and flavour, creamy texture, white sugar and a bit down on aroma. Misses either freshness or body. Not as expected. Or should I have chosen a different beer after two hoppy IPAs? (Sample glass at the Brewdog Camden bar)

Draught @ Brewdog Camden, London

Pours pitch black with a tiny light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, raisins, ripe fruits and ash. Surprisingly sweet taste with a lot of roastiness, ripe fruits, licorice, molasses and syrup. Finish is sweet and slightly roasty with some raisin and syrup notes. Quite sweet for an imperial stout, perhaps slightly too sweet for my taste.

teorn88 (1918) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Camden. Pours a dark brown color with a small brownish head. Aroma is sweetish with molasses and little coffe and roasted notes. Some plums. Taste is similar, little acidity, little roasty bitterness, nice figgy sweetness. Body is medium to full with soft carbonation. Overall, decent but nothing mind blowing.

A nice imp stout with a dry aftertaste. The alcohol is never present. Unfortunately this one just lacks the character necessary for a 10+ beer.

1/3 Pint On-tap at Brewdog Glasgow:
Strong malts and a slightly milder coffee aroma along with touches of liquorice and grain. As I was expecting from such a strong beer, there is a heavy alcohol aroma too.
Very dark, chocolate brown with a thin off-white to brown lacing for a head.
A rich tasting beer with plenty of sweet malts and liquorice along with a strong coffee like taste. There is a huge kick to this one thanks to the 10.% abv and there is also a touch of grain but overall it is sweet and strong.
Smooth with a medium body and a rather warming feel to it from the alcohol. This was is very strong. The finish is a dry one with a lingering coffee taste.

This beer was a bit to strong for my liking, it tasted okay without being great but the huge alcohol taste was a bit much for me and too noticeable.
