COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The flavors are so big in this Imperial Stout, they barely fit in the bottle. The wallop of Chocolate, Black Currents & Coffee makes this one Phat Beer. Named for the large amount of hops in the recipe, this fat beer will make you jolly with each sip.

A fine stout. The flavor is a bit bland but to the credit of the brew I must say I consumed a flavorful stout ahead if this one....I’ll try this one again in the future and adjust my rating.

Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle shared at chriso’s Easter 2015 tasting - London. Cheers to Fergus for sharing this one. Pours oily black-brown with a frothy tan head. The nose holds chalky cocoa, milk chocolate, light roast. Medium sweet flavor with modest earthy bitterness, dusty milk chocolate. Light to medium bodied, creamy, with average carbonation. Ashy roast in the finish, cocoa, earth, faint raisin. Not bad.

glennmastrange (2621) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Moderate toasted and strong coffee for the malt, light to moderate resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, and tar in the background. Head is small, frothy, brown with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft carbonation, and a finish that’s chalky, dry and lightly astringent. A tasty deep and dark Imperial Stout, but just not as complex as I would’ve liked.
