Keg at Brewdog. Black pour, thin head. Definite vanilla ice cream, raisins, softest BBQ smoke nose. Fairly sweet (much much sweeter than the old Arran batch), rum ’n’ raisins, soft smoke, white chocolate, warm booze and a hint of roast on the finish. Medium oily body, soft carbonation. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at Brewdog Leeds. Pours a pitch black, small mocha head that fades. Aroma is vanilla/oak/whisky, some raisin, peat/smoke, hot chocolate. Taste is good too and a bit more complex - rum-soaked raisins, vanilla, pray, smoke, some slight coffee. Medium-full body, lovely lingering bitterness. It is good, but I dunno, it seems to be missing something, probably the complexity I’d expect from a 15% imperial stout.

Tap at BrewDog Camden. Pours black with a small lightly tanned ring for a head. Nose shows heavy, sweet white chocolate, light whisky, heavy vanilla, raisins. Definitely for the sweet tooths out there. Taste is white chocolate covered almonds and raisins. Very sweet and chocolatey with dark fruits and light nutty tones. Booze is hidden nicely. Bitter sweet finish. Lengthy. Really good stuff
