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…

Bottle. Pours dark black/brown - slight red tinge when held to light. Thin tan head. Aroma is meaty (teriyaki) , a touch rubbery, chocolate... Full body, mild carbonation. Rich, with some of that teriyaki meaty thing happening as well as licorice, treacle, bitter coffee, dark choc, a bit of rum. Tasty.

Bottle at home, and keg somewhere... I forget... Anyway I?m rating the bottle I see before me. Pours black as an adulterer?s heart, with a thin coffee-cream head. Lasts well, good lacing. Aromas are liquorice, cream, filth, chocolate, coffee and wantonness. And plums. Maybe cinnamon. Palate is textbook smooth, with roasted notes balancing the sweet. Hides the abv tooooo well. Damned fine. I?ll say it again... Damned fine... What a lady, what a night...

Great light feel beer until the alcohol hits in, which balances well with the taste. This is a bearded lady I would be happy to kiss.

The_Osprey (5742) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Keg. Thick black with big tan head. So big that the bartender had to pour three glasses and then combine them into one. Strangely, the head on the glass I was eventually given doesn’t endure that long. Mouthfeel of the beer is really great and the beer is very easy drinking at 10.5%. Flavour is mostly roasted barley, a little coffee, sweet, bitterness comes late in the flavour along with some raisin. Astringency in aftertaste. A decent beer. The best aspect is the mouthfeel, which must be up there with the best.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 16.03.2013, tap @ Cardinal:
Lett sødmerik lukt med preg av mørk malt, humle, mørkt sukker, kaffi, karamell, gras, sjokolade. Lett tørr og fyldig sødmerik smak med preg av mørk malt, humle, høy, kaffi, mørkt sukker, alkohol, gras, karamell, røsta korn. Middels bitterhet som set litt. Grei.

Bottle. Dark brown with a small head, Low carbonation and a malty full bodied flavour. Slightly smoked with no overpowering sweetness that you often find in beers of this strength. Dangerously easy to drink and very impressive.
