GBBF, cask. Aroma has roasted malt. Firm licorice apple and roasted malt flavor. Long roasted bitter finish. Loads of flavor for the modest alcohol content.

GBBF 2003: not much going on with the aroma: light chocolate-espresso nose. Medium hazelnut-opaque color wth a foamy head. Mild bitter coffee - roasted taste. Not really thin but takes it's time to show the flavors in your mouth. Decent - but not overwhelming.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 Bring on the chalky astringency i say. Loads of roasty, smoky, chocolatey flavours. Nice richness of flavour, medium bodied. Nice salty, mineraly, dry finish, some nice bitter hops also noticed. Yeah, its only a 4.5% Imperial Stout, but it tastes good, thats all that matters to me. (Cask- KentBF03')

That's no mistake--an Imperial Stout at 4.5% abv. Very dark and very much opaque, but apparently thin as well, as you might expect. Quite a bit of flavor, chocolate, smoke, roastiness, with an aroma that also shows some plum richness. But for me, the good elements here were overwhelmed by a sharply negative palate effect--highly chalky and astringent, with an otherwise acceptably bitter end. The chalkiness had me grimacing with each sip, even as I kept drinking more and more to give it the benefit of the doubt. (gravity pour at 2003 Kent Beer Festival)
