An excellent example of the style and a superb way of completing a tasting session. Full bodied and well balanced it makes a great complement to a strong cheese and/or chocolate desert.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff okt-13: man må bare overse deres selvgode ordgyterier på etiketten når ølet smaker så fortreffelig. En meget god imp.stout på alle måter. Drikker gjerne denne igjen!

Bottle @ home
Pours very dark brown , lightgrey head
Not so much smell , in my opinion . Perhaps to cold ?
Low carbo . Roasted malts , some chocolate notes , some coffee , aftertadte is very roasted malts- based .
Too wattery for my taste , but theres nothing wrong with the taste . Just think that some of their own beers ( dead pony club ) have at least as much taste ( even being a diffrent genre ) so for 8 this feels way to weak and wattery

Solid brew. I was very impressed. Bottle was about a year old. Poured pitch black, aroma was roast,chocolate, and coffee. Flavor followed through from the aroma. Finished a bit bitter which was nice. Not too sweet, a bit dry, very enjoyable.

Draught at Brewdog Shoreditch. No surprise that it’s pitch black with a small white head. Smell - oil, smoke, molasses. Body medium. Taste is more smoke, caramel, coffee. Finishes with crayon and liquorice and some astringency. Good imperial stout which I enjoyed.

Another great Brewdog beer. The alcohol is low for an imperial stout, but the taste is original and strong, which is more important.

A strong, smooth traditional stout. Yes, there’s chocolate in there but not as much as the stouts that define chocolate as their raison d’etre bu (like cocoa psycho from these guys). I get the chocolate and liquorice taste in the malt with a fresh, earthy bitterness from the hops.
