On opening there’s a huge whiff of bourbon: caramel, chocolate, coconut and vanilla. Low carbonation, but oh so lovely bourbon notes.

Rating 14,000. Bottle from a visit to the Ramsgate Brewery. Thanks Eddie, you are still the best brewer in Kent in my ever so humble opinion. Black beer, Bubbly tan head. Aroma of bourbon and dark chocolate. Touch of chocolate liquer aroma. A little bit of chocolate sponge cake aroma. No huge carbonation. Hides abv well. Some sting on the finish. A lot of chocolate, dark chocolate comes through, like dark Belgian chocolate. Bourbon in the mouth is very subtle. The flavour is excellent. A bit of a sipper. Just settled down with this and some radio comedy. Rather a good barrel aged impy stout. Touch of vanilla and coconut on the aroma.

hohops (499) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
Appearance- black, and absolutely no head whatsoever. Plenty of alcohol legs. Aroma- chocolate, bitterness, cocoa, vanilla and bourbon notes, hint of leather. Taste- leathery, plenty of vanilla bourbon, smooth with almost no carbonation, a bit viscous but the mouthfeel is actually not that full. Bitter cocoa and coffee undertones, syrupy and a bit fudgy. Alcohol is quite well hidden. Pretty good imperial stout.

Mortlach (1240) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 24, 2014
21/03/2014 330ml bottle (thanks Theydon_Bois!). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma beige-cappuccino modesta. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, zucchero di canna, toffee, alcol, ossidazione, squilibrata, rozza e aggressiva. In bocca alcol, malti tostati, caramello, ossidazione, completamente sballata e rozza. Corpo pieno, piatta. Pessima.

Don’t know where my last rating went. Pretty awful beer. Smelt really nice but the taste was horrible and I ended up pouring half of it down the sink. Lessons in strong dark beers definitely needed. Instead of churning out lots of beers and maximizing profits how about concentrating on quality?

Stuu666 (6166) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle at Craig’s tasting. Huge toffee bourbon nose, sweet toffee and vanilla taste, sweet chocolate, dry, harsh bourbon. Blend of both was also nice.

allmyvinyl (6035) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours black with the merest hint of a head. Aromas of vanilla, bourbon, wood, booze, coffee. Taste has more coffee, irish coffee maybe. Creamy mouthfeel. Long finish. Good.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Pours black, almost no head. Smell is rapsberry and bitter sweet coco. Taste roasty, red fruit, not a whole lot of barrel, light oak Bit thin Ok

McNeillR (1677) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Dark treacley with slimest tan head. Woody and fully sweet Bourbon nose. Nicely roasted, pointed rich coffee. A little more understated carbonation, oily but lets the ageing do the work pushing it towards the finish. Creamy enough finish - not overly sweet. p>Bottle, Black Friday Tasting
