Osprey87 (1711) - WALES - JUN 1, 2014
75cl bottle picked up last year at a staggeringly reasonable £4. Bottled Sep 2012. Black beer with a small off-white head. Aroma - yeast, alcohol, milk chocolate, smoke, coffee. Body - medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste - very smooth malts, chocolate, some red berry, light vanilla, whisky-and-coke, no alcohol. Just ultra-smooth. Much better than expected. It’s not often my girlfriend likes an imperial stout, but this is one of those rare occasions.

SilverfoX (268) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
massive chocolate aroma, black body with brown edges rich smooth and that lethal strength lurking in there, one of the very best.

gripweed57 (685) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2014
750 ml ceramic topped swing-topped bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a small bubbly tan head that dissolves into a kaleidoscope of perfect swirls. Aroma has hints of roasted malt, dark fruits, Worcestershire sauce and alcohol. Sweet roasted malt flavor has complex notes of raisins, vanilla, resiny hops and an earthy yeast twang. Finishes with a chewy coffee-like lingering maltiness.
