Bottle. I a lot of the spice and a bit of chocolate in the nose. The flavor was totally dominated by the herbs followed be a hint of sweet stout. Maybe it will blend a bit with time.

bomber, nah, the spices are weird, the base imperial stout is great which pretty much saves it, the spices are too weird for me. Very disjointed.

From a bomber. Pours dark brown with a bubbly tan head. Smells like sweet vanilla, cinnamon, chai tea, and slightly astringent alcohol. Tastes like alcohol, dry chai tea, cinnamon.

Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy golden tan head. Aroma is chocolate, chai, cinnamon, light floral notes, light roasted malts, and faint plums. Flavor is roast and chocolate malt profile, some spices, faint dark fruit sweetness, and some earthy bitterness; dry, chocolate finish. Medium body and carbonation.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some light Indian spices, a good amount of chocolate and sweetness, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best beer.

A unique stout, no question. The usual super-dark brown almost black color. Aroma is....ginger and cocoa I suppose? Taste is definitely ginger, cocoa and cinnamon. The ginger jumps out the most and gives it a spicy bite. The ginger hangs on the tongue well after. Worth a try, but probably not worth a repeat.

Bottle served in snifter: Uniqueness is the name of the game
Strong influence of chai tea, ginger snaps and cinnamon buns over a layer of roast and dark chocolate. The mouth feel is weak and watery however plus there’s a slight green apple undertone as well. Overall it is good but could be so much better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at BD Shep’s - London. Thanks, guys! Pours clear brown with a beige cream head. Big chocolate aroma with striking ginger. Medium sweet with nice chocolate character, more spicy ginger, some mint essence. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with light earthy bitterness, lasting ginger and cocoa. I really like when cocoa and ginger get mixed in a beer; I just think it works well.

Brewdog Shepherds Bush. Bottle share with Jackie, Simon and David. Opaque dark brown - black beer. Small pale tan head. A nose of potpourri and those nibbles you get waiting for your Indian restaurant takeaway. Palate is soft and airy with superfine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, little cream. Mild spicy floral flavours that follow the nose. Finishes light and soft. A pleasantly mellow spiced Impy that is also light on it’s toes. Nice.

Overall a really solid but really weird brew. Tons of ginger and cardamom in the nose and taste. Some vanilla and roast coffee coming through. Worth a purchase if you see it.
