Say hello to the Bearded Lady, our uncompromisingly big and beautiful Imperial Stout. Born from our Dark Arts recipe she uses masses of magical malts to deliver deep chocolate, rich coffee and vinous berry flavours all complemented by a balanced yet subtly spicy hop profile. Powerful, robust, intriguing; yet decadently smooth and sumptuous, the lady demands respect…

EdKing (2402) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle from Kris Wines. Have kept this for about 5 months. Pours a lovely very dark brown, with a medium to thin foam tan brown head. Nose is quite musty, grain musty, roasted malt, dark fruit, slight fortified wine vinous, slight cheesy, fresh milk, dark chocolate. Taste is strong rich roasted malt, tangy burnt flavours, lots of dark fruit, prune and raisin, alcohol, slight vinous, and then some yeasty, savoury character, soy sauce, salty, and dark chocolate. the finish is roasted malt and soy sauce, with the savoury winning over the sweet. Not getting a huge amount of coffee. More a burnt roasted character.

330ml bottle takeout from Friends of Ham. Drunk many months later. Woody, coffee aroma. Massive taste of course.. lots of dark fiery malts, chocolate, coffee and bitter spice. Smooth and surprisingly drinkable for the ABV. Lovely stuff.
