MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask at GBBF. Lovely purple black colour. Smoky malt aroma with hints of coffee and a slight lick of hops. Not sure how "imperial" it is but it’s certainly stouty and it does drink above its strength. A fair bit of old ale character about it. Dark and earthy. Dusty malt finish. Very tasty.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2006
[Cask at the Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2005] A red-brown beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted combined with very light notes of hops. The flavor is very sweet with light notes of roasted malt, chocolate, vegetables, and celery. The alcohol prickles the tongue slightly. I wonder where the Imperial in the name comes from in a beer of 4.5% ABV?

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2005
Sweet, thick, chocolate aroma has notes of shoe leather. Opaque brown body with ruby highlights and a generous and lasting large-bubbled brown head. Roasty flavour up front with soy and chocolate character. Medium body is perhaps a bit thin for style with somewhat low carbonation. Cask at GBBF 2005.

Gravity cask at Red Lion, Snargate, Kent. Black in colour. Chocolate malt nose, smokey charcoal. Full in mouth, some acids with bitter burnt malt on end

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2004
Very dark with a beige head. Aromas are roast malts, earthy and peaty with licourice. Flavours consist of lots of roast malts with coffee and a dry earthy palate. Has a dry finish with licourice bitterness. Surely not strong enough to be called an Imperial Stout!
