Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Cotteridge, Birmingham, consumed at home Thursday 19th November 2015 I hadnít really thought about the style of this so was a little surprised to pour an Imperial Stout, I really donít know why but for some reason I looked at it before pouring and thought it should be a DIPA. Pours black with a beige head, thick in the mouth. Loz doesnít think that this tastes very strong (this is where we disagree from the off). Not as cloying as many big Impy Stouts (particularly the big USA Impy Stouts) Really quite tangy, roasty and with a little smokiness, but some zappy hoppiness also. The alcohol provides quite an oomph and warmth I liked this. A7 A5 T8 P4 Ov15 3.9

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Really splendid beer. Super hoppy, smooth and sweetly dark. You sit here drinking it and cannot believe the strength. So easy to swig.

Keg at the bottle shop. Opaque black oily coloured pour with a halo of tan head. Aroma is really earthy campfire, coffee, and some jammy fruits, black forest gateaux. Flavour is composed of sweet cakey malts, praline and nutty choc, earthy coffee in the finish. Palate is velvety, smooth, moderate carbonation, little creamy. Pretty smooth for the abv.

Garrold (3054) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle (first rating in bottle, by the looks). Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Slow moving pour. Nearly black. In the glass it has a thin, weighty, lasting, sticky, tan head. Aroma is pretty savoury, overall. Itís meaty. Some tar. Charred wood. And then thereís a fruity, grapefruit, chocolate orange sweetness that delivers a lovely balance. Taste is big, roasty, and hoppy bitter. Some lip stickage. Then more bitterness. Easy drinking, mind. Sweetens up on the tongue. Feels surprisingly light. Finishes long, fruity, roasty bitter. Itís Sunday dinner in a glass. Yorkshire pudding starter. Roast beef main. Black Forest gateau for dessert.
