3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled Sep 1st, 2014, drunk 7/23/16, thanks to Brian.
Awesome, massively well-retained dark beige head sits atop a dark mahogany body of low clarity.
Clean, crisp, clear citrus and floral hops in the nose are somehow still prevalent after all these years. Cocoa, vanilla, biscuit and fudge quickly fill in the gaps as the hops disappear permanently. Choco-graham cracker with good, dry, crunchy coffee notes. Very light raisin-prune character could be more acidic and balancing, but it’s not that sweet, so the relative balance is good. Strong acidity in the mouth, getting bready and very biscuity-chocolatey. I guess the alcohol dosent build up too badly. Pretty nice, though a bit bitter and dry/roasty.

375ML bottle. Thanks WillRun. Smells great. smells like coffee and oak and even whiskey. loads of chocolatey espresso aroma with vanilla. this smells great. Taste is great. smokey, peet, vanilla, espresso. Dense mouthfeel, thick and almost creamy. Peet throughout with ashy charcoal. I think this is fantastic. a traditional imperial stout with a modern finish. Love it was bottle conditioned.

Old rating transferred to Ratebeer. Very very dark beer, a bit to light body for me for an imp. stout.

How do I love you Buxton let me count the ways.... A dangerous 1/2 pint at Euston tap. Pours oily inky black, tan head. Subtle aroma of coffee. Big big flavours of toast (burnt, in a good way), coffee, dark dark chocolate and treacle. Boozy hit. Stonking stuff.
