Chocolate and lightly acidic coffee nose, mellowed out with vanilla and oak. I suspect the light acidity and fruitiness is more so from the barrel than the coffee, but it’s a well integrated coffee-driven imperial stout filled with flavour - oak, vanilla, earthy, chocolate like coffee which doesn’t get too roasted or goes over the top. This is the best version of the Beer Geek Brunch Weasel’s I’ve tried, and for some reason it had a better mouthfeel than Islay & Bourbon.

Keg at Brewdog. Boozy sweet velvet with choco fetishes and possibly the best colour tan head since god knows when. Attack of the prunes. Defended by the cloak of cognac. After this I fear nobody. I mean you really ought to.

Keg at ND Camden. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is rich roast, sweet coffee, vanilla, light apple notes, juicy, charred wood, light spice, burnt toffee, nougat and a good hit of chocolate. The taste is rich roast, smooth, bitter-sweet, cocoa, earth, coffee, mild acidity, warming alcohol, wood, charred stuff, medicinal notes, tar and some dried apple with a dry, roasty finish. Full body, fine carbonation and slick mouth-feel. Rich and decadent, yet remains very drinkable. Good stuff.

Sticky apple, melted figs and quite hot. Initial taste is brisk coffee or simply up front bitterness. More fig and bit of varnish. Spicier mouthfeel than the others, kicks on a bit. Nice cooling bitterness and sticky sweet linger.
