4cl from bottle @Harry?s. Pours dark brown with no head. Oily. Aroma is alcohol, dark fruits, coffee, dark malts, mud cake, chocolate... Rich aroma! Flavor is mud cake, black coffee, chocolate, alcohol, dark malts, dark bread and salty liquorice. Oily palate, not stingy beer at all! Swell!

Over the top stout, oatmeal chocolate liquorish. Sweet, very warm alcohol finish. Still very drinkable despite the high alcohol.

Advocate_Ames (548) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Pours black with no head. Aroma is of warming whiskey spiced booze, salty, oak, chocolate malts, and buttery toffee. It reminds me of a tasty sweet glazed meat. The flavor is rather rich of dark roasted malts, sweet burnt caramel syrup, some bitterness, and some vanilla. The finish is more of a roasted coffee liqueur without the dark coffee bitterness. Overall it is rather good. If you consider the potent nature of this brew it blends rather well. It remains vand very flavorful and is intriguing. I never had anything like this. I would recommend this beverage even that it is not your typical imperial stout style.

Pours a viscous black with no head. Aroma is sweet molasses with slight dark chocolate notes. Taste is sweet malt, dark chocolate, slight leather with an alcohol burn. Thick as oil.

Not bad. A sweet think ans syrupy brew. Nice but not worth more than to satisfy curiosity. :-)

chinchill (3586) - South Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2015
Small sample from a swingtop bottle in Edinburgh. Dark reddish-brown body looks quite thick. Smells much like a barleywine. Tastes like barleywine concentrate. Syrupy. No mistaking high ABV in the mouthfeel. Boozy, but much less so than expected given the extraordinary ABV.

AdiBeer (2561) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Aroma: toasted malts, coffee, salty, smoked flavours. Appearance: slightly hazy black, no head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: salty flavours coming up quickly, alcohol, toasted malts, coffee liqueur. Overall: very extreme, interesting, yet nothing I would drink again. Bottle at the brewery, Ellon.
