craftycarl21 (2251) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. Beautiful black pour with beige head. Nose is absolutely HUGE dank Simcoe hop; weed, spruce, pine, resin, rich biting sap presence. Flavor balances out more, with hints of it still being British with a balancing malt presence and less aggressive bitter roast with touches more smooth espresso and caramel sweetness to round out the bold hopping. Smooth but rich. Outstanding.

JorgeLee (1250) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Keg at King William IV. Utterly black in colour, thick off white head. Slightly boozy. Strong alcoholic roastiness, all the heaviest stuff from the roast, but balanced but a surprisingly fresh hop taste, really laying on the Simcoe. This works - very much a full on rather than a smooth imperial stout, but hugely characterful.

shoulderbroken (2160) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2012
Keg at Old Coffee House. Dark brown black colour, big thick creamy gold head. Aroma is roast malt, bready, little bit of lemon. Taste is very nice. Very thick, bit of creaminess, lemon in background then becomes more prominent. Bit of ice cream float. Thick and filling. Really really nice and totally hides the alcohol. Really want to drink this again.

jackl (4797) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Keg @ The Old Coffee House. The pour’s a deep brown color with a small tan head. The nose is pine, citrus, loads of roasted malts and a bit of coffee. The taste is strong grass, citrus. This is supported by a big body or roasted malts, bitter chocolate. Gritty ash. Dry, pinewood bitter finish. Smooth, drinks well for the ABV. Overall, a really nice imperial stout. This has personality.

Scopey (7183) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2012
Keg at The Old Coffee House. It pours very dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is rich roasted malt, espresso coffee, pine, liquorice, orange, lime and toffee. The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, treacle, liquorice, coffee, oily, salted caramel, wood, earth, resin, salt, ash and alcohol warmth with a bitter finish. Full body, lowish carbonation and slick mouth-feel. A big, ballsy and somewhat brash imperial stout.

harrisoni (14015) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2012
On tap at Old Coffee House London. Black beer lasting tan head. Very hoppy simcoe beer. Very nice. Some roasted choc then big bold hop finish. Too cold but a pretty good british impy stout.

Leighton (11631) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
Draft at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours black-brown with a fine, white foam head. Gritty pine nose, whole flower hops, some dirt and strong roast. Medium sweet flavor, nice roasty chocolate character, strong pine, grass. It’s really resinous. Full bodied with fine, velvety carbonation. Chewy. Decent roast to finish, robust pine and dirt, super sticky and resinous. Lots of grapefruit. Nice. Very bold and gritty. Love that Brodies.

Draught @ [ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012 ] @ Spartas Lokaler, Faelledparken in Osterbro, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Clear dark brown colour with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, chocolate, moderate hoppy, citrus. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, licorice, fruity, citrus. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20120511]

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2012
From tap @Mikkeller Bar. Opaque black body. Thin greyish-brown head. Big hop aroma, clean piney and cirtrussy. Taste is hop forward. Citrus-fruity and resinous, with notes of flowers and pine needles. Restraind dry malt body. Mild roast and hint of burnt caramel. Smooth and warm in the mouth. Dry hop-bitter ending. A Black IPA in disquise? Anyway, this is really good stuff.
