3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned, aged 8 years, from Westholme Stores, Goring, Oxon. Jet Black with tan head. Big heavy, black roasted malt flavours from the start, liquorice and bitumen notes, quite well amalgamated over the years, although still a considerable bitterness. Elderberry notes, pretty earthy and dry, lots of tongue coating and mouthfeel, thick and heavy. A big old bruiser of a beer.

Bottle sample at a tasting at tomer’s place. Thanks tomer. Black with a bit of tan foam. Aroma is burnt and boozy, with wine, dark fruits, chocolate, some soy sauce, charcoal, licorice. Sourish-bitterish roasty flavor, vinous, with dark fruits, soy sauce, some chocolate, coffee, and alcohol. Quite full-bodied. A bit too boozy, but mellows with some time in the glass.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Hawk. Deep and almost black, moderately high carbonation, something of a head. Very powerful beer, lots of roasty notes, deep dark fruit cake and a slightly licorice spicy flavour. Love the Goldings, Imperial Stout with lots of spicy British hops seems to fit together better than an aggressive citrus overload. Very pleasant, and in a big bottle too!
