4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2.5 year old, in keg from Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Pours a perfect black, with small deep brown head. Aroma is brilliant imperial stout - deep chocolate, coffee, spice, hint of orange zest. Taste is brilliant too: soft, deep chocolate, a bit of coffee bitterness, milk, a little sultana, brine and a little toffee. Medium-full body, prickle of carbonation, long coffee bitter linger. Tastes like a classic, not modern imperial stout, and a bloody good one at that.

Bottle thanks to cgarvieukhic. Upon removing cap a large hiss escapes. Pour is pitch black with a very large brown head, bubbles range from small to large. eventually fades to the point that I can smell it. A deep baking chocolate aroma, super rich, but not overly chocolate or coffee. Taste is sweet initially, but then on the baack side, finishes a bit thin and watery. a moderate ilk chocolate flavor is most of the beer, but there seems to be just a hint of sourness or tartness. I’m not quite sure what it is. Pretty tasty.

2.5 year old at the Hanging Bat from keg on opening night.
Deep tan head that is big to start and leaves multiple laciced rings with every sip. Penetrating nose. Dark fruits, tannic on the tongue. Chewy, booze, tombacco and a burnt earth at the end. Long long aftertaste. Well executed and special
