3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg @ The Old Coffee House. The pourís 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.

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.

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. Itís 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.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ The Bow Bar, Edinburgh 270712
Very dark brown, thin ruby edges in glass, tan creamy head that dissipated to thin layer
Aroma - Piney citrus hops, deep roasted malts, some resin, alcohol well hidden
Taste - roasted malts, piney hops, rich dark malts, citrus hops, bi grassy, soft coffee, lots of stout flavour but very hoppy too, alcohol well hidden, perhaps a bit too grassy spicy hoppy - not sure Iíd call this an Imperial Stout
Palate - medium carb, medium to full body. Finish as main flavour, bit dry, piney, roast bitter. Quite a rapid finish then becomes more lingering.
Overall - This is crossing into Black IPA territory, itís really hoppy. Great beer.
