On tap @ Borefts 2013 This is a deep dark brown one, light cloudy in the glass with a bubbly sidesticking beige top. Smells of light tarmac, dark sweet malts, caramel fudge and some chocolate wrapper. Quite enjoyable nose. It’s above average on the carbonation and it has a oily mouthfeel. Light roasted and almost lactose sweet flavors. Quite well bitter with a minty almost toothpaste touch over it. Some biscuits in the finish. Actually a bit interesting and not bad tasting at all. 28.09.2013

Gedronken bij Joes. Donkerbruine kleur en een beige schuimkraag. Ruikt naar thee, earl grey, kruidig. Smaakt naar thee, hoppig, kruidig, beetje afwaswater. Geen stout zoals verwacht, maar over het algemeen wel lekker.

Bottle courtesy of dad Wednesday 25th December 2013 shared with dad who picked this up from the brewery, cheers dad Pours very dark brown, hoppy and roasty, soft carbobation. It is perhaps a little thin compared to many Imperial Stouts, however it is very flavoursome. Furry, green fresh hops buzzing on tongue. Some yeast on a very beery nose. Good but I preferred the Zombier which I had again last night. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov14 3.3

Cask at Cask Pub Kitchen. Black with a scummy light brown head. Smell - not much to report, but I have a bit of a cold. Body - light to medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste - hoppy up front (particularly orange/tangerine), roasted barley, ashy finish. It’s like a decent black IPA.

Really dark red - practically black, with a big frothy beige head. Aroma of earthy hops, nutty roast malt. Light sweet with a light sour and bitter finish. Oily texture, a little thin for the style, with low carbonation. Good beer.

Cask conditioned at The Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell, London. Dark brown with cream head. Heady alcohol, plummy, apricot at the start masking much of the dark roasted malts. Sweetish, full on the palate. Decent enough.
