johndoughty (4975) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle. Black with a small head.Creamy with as you would expect lots of body. Not as much complexity and flavour as I expected. Perhaps I was expecting too much but this not one of the best beers of its type that I have tried. Still quite nice though.

Benzai (13881) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle shared @ final old style THT. Opaque black color, medium sized light brown head. Aroma is malts, roasted malts, lightly mocha and chocolate in the background. Taste malts, chocolate and mocha again a bit more clear this time, more hoppy than I expected, lightly roasty. Slightly thin texture, at least a bit more thin than I had expected it to be. Quite nice though.

jmgreenuk (7635) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle at the End of an Era tasting at ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a dark brown colour with a frothy tan head. The aroma is rich roasty malt, grassy simcoe hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a rich citrus, liqourice malt palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Like a black IPA without the carbonation.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Cotteridge, Birmingham, consumed at home Thursday 19th November 2015 I hadn’t really thought about the style of this so was a little surprised to pour an Imperial Stout, I really don’t 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 doesn’t 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
