harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2012
355ml bottle from Bottle Shop Canterbury. Ok, so this really isnít my kind of beer. Iím drinking this whilst eating English crumpets with raspberry conserve and listening to a R.E.M. live album from Dublin. So Iím in a good mood. Black beer with thin disappearing beige head until I swirled the beer and a thick tan head raised up. Thick intense aroma of belgian dark chocolate and intense espresso coffee. I mean heavy coffee. Like freshly ground coffee beans. As good as Yeti? Not quite. But as a big coffee impy stout? Yep thatís pretty good in that it is utterly drinkable. I was fearing an oily soy sauce mess, but this is dry and agile and drinkable. Yep, goes with the crumpets and the jam really well. Wow the coffee is pretty good. Very dry. Not subtle but hell its a big impy stout. yep intense and pretty damn fine. I would purchase this again. Some alcohol does come through, some burn. Pretty good though.

The color is the deepest black, with dark brown generous head. The aroma of coffee is prominent, pungent, dynamic, peppery. Full bodied, with smooth mouthfeel; strong flavor of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, light liquorice; correct bitterness.
Excellent.
