[6520-20140710] Cask. Roasted grain malt aroma. Black cola body with a quick bubbly tan head. Roasted malt and smoked grains flavour is only a little boozy. Full body feels a little thin. Surprised this was imperial. (7/3-/7/3/15) 3.5

Cask at Scottish Real Ale Festival 2014. Black body with a thin beige head. Aroma of rich chocolate and liqueur. Flavour of roasted malts, chocolate, a hint of smoke and a bitter, grassy finish. Medium body with a smooth texture. Quite bitter for an Imperial Stout, which I like.
