COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This imperial stout is brewed with copious amounts of specialty malts, jasmine and cranberries. After fermentation we then dry hopped it with a bucketload of our favourite hops before carefully aging the beer on French toasted oak chips.

Basically a fruit stout, considering the fact that it contains cranberries, but in fact one of Brewdog’s many experiments with the imperial stout style. Jasmin flowers are apparently also added to the mash. Black beer with beige head and complex and overpowering aroma of candied dates, pear syrup, calvados, coffee powder, flowers and indeed a sourish fruitiness coming from the cranberries, as well as some brandy-like booze. Very intense and concentrated taste, sweetish candied fruits, chocolate, thick, almost syrupy and oily mouthfeel, profound maltiness, meaty, rhum-like warming alcohol in the end with cranberry hints and herbal hops, complex. A truly wonderful impy.

bien noire, peu de mousse, très sucrée, beaucoup de fruits secs, assez vite écoeurante.

furthur (172) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle pour, black body with bubbly graham foam. Aroma is cherries, spice, raisins, soy sauce, licorice. Taste is raisins, molasses, black licorice, coffee, cola, vanilla. So sickly sweet! Wow! Palate is good, carbonation subdued. This is like cough syrup. Way too sweet. Can’t believe i’m gonna drain pour.

Nicke80 (181) - Södertälje, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2014
33cl bottle from systembolaget. Pours pitch black with little head. Sweet aroma with nice sweet flavours. First taste nice and fruity with chocolate but aftertaste has a strong alcohol taste.

allmyvinyl (3347) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2014
Bottle, thanks Craig. Another one I’d thought I wouldn’t get a chance at! Dark brown, no head. Big aromas, of liquorice and cranberries - swear i can get some jasmine at the back. Floral notes anyway. Taste is much thinner than the 18.2% version, but still quite rich, and oaky. Dry finish, thins out more at the end. Loved trying this.

BenH (2331) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, thanks Craig. Black with brown head. Roasty aroma with lots of licorice. Taste of molasses, roasty. Bit thin, tangy amd sticky.

McNeillR (1221) - SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2014
Darkest brown, no real head. Oaky, bleeding liquorice and light cherry. Almost oaty, decent sweetness. Vibrant darkest malt. Held up suprisingly well but rakes of dryness.

Bottle, from the CGArvieUK cave

torebravo (2) - - APR 23, 2014 does not count
(18.2% version). Exceptional beer! A bit sweet and the taste lasts for minutes. BrewDog once again shows why they are among my favourite breweries.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Malts, chocolat, liqueur sucrée. Ca tape un peu trop quand même. Moyen plus.

Jet black pour with a small tan head. Boozy aromas with some nice molasses and cocoa. Flavor is pretty warm at first but then the roasty character comes out nicely. Finish is long and a bit hot. If the abv was a bit more hidden on this one it’d be a lot nicer but still pretty good.
