You can Count on this rich, dark, imperial stout having enough bite for anyone looking to satisfy their thirst. Coffee, burnt toast and bitter fruits dominate whilst Styrian Goldings slowly seduce the palate.

Towey1989 (1894) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A deep brown to black colour with a frothy tan head. Aroma of raisin, sultana, liquorice, some coffee, slight roasted malts, a little chocolate and subtle spicy blackberry. Taste of raisin, sultana, other dark fruits, liquorice, roasted malts, some coffee, slight chocolate, a little black pepper, weird leathery taste and subtle herbal hops. Full bodied and an oily texture. A dry, leathery, dark fruit bitterness in the finish. Quite a boozy stout, very fruity. Subtle roastiness and hop too. Not sure if I like it or not. May have to try again somewhere else.

zacgillbanks (4527) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is an inky black beer that pours with no head. It has a rich liquorice and chocolate flavour, nutty and coffee notes followed by ginger and blackberry on the roasted finish. Excellent!

olsvammel (6200) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle from the distributor (Best of Midlands). Dark toasted smell with dark chocolate, coffee and roasted bread. Similar taste with a touch of caramel. Rounded flavours and easy to drink. Low carbonation. Nice beer, not really an imperial stout though as the sticker says but nothing I put into the score.

VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2014
Flaska 500 ml (Best of Midlands - Winter edition. Från Systembolaget). Mörka toner, chocklad och kaffe i aromen. Bra balans i smaken, del besk. Kroppen är fantastiskt bra för ABVn.

mzaar (2815) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
Flaska 500 ml (Best of Midlands - Winter edition. Från Systembolaget). Svart öl med ett moccafärgat skum, som snart lägger sig. Dofter av kaffe, kakao, lakrits och läder. Smakinslag av kaffe, peppar, aska och lakrits. Medel mot stor kropp. En mycket bra stout.

Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Really pleasant. Viscous, leathery stout. Gently warming. Balanced, light, but earthy. Some oil.

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
500cl bottle shared in a Leffe glass. Pours black with a light beige coloured head which last longer than most. Aroma is quite powerful with dark fruit notes hitting first. Taste is more of the same with quite a sour black cherry note to it which compliments the richness of the other flavours. Really quite complex with the amount of flavours however, less balanced than the Belgian/American counterparts. Mouthfeel is really very god particularly considering the ABV is "only" 6.66% - which in IMperial Stout terms is about as low as I have tried. One of the better English beers I have tried.
