Opaque black beer with a short lived mid tan head. Softish and semi dry palate, smooth. Rich dark malt smoothed out by mellow wood (but no sweet vanilla oak here). Mild chocolate and milder coffee. The red wine is subtle but definitely there and a nice counterpart to the rich malt. Finishes smooth and dry with a little zing.

OMFG. Now, I LOVE this beer, it fills every single tiny box of what I expect from a porter; and I would make wild passionate love to any of its female relations - but you just have this sense that maybe, just maybe, there’s more to come. One day a porter will beat this, but probably not in my lifetime, MY GODS - time to drink myself into a stupor and believe that Nirvana is chocolate honey with a head.

375ml bottle. Pours pitch black with thin mocha brown head; light lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruit, brown sugar, booze. Taste follows suit with plenty of deep roasted malt, dark chocolate, mocha coffee notes, dark fruit, slight oakiness; big booze note as it goes down - plenty of warmth. Red wine barrel note only really becomes apparent in the aftertaste, pretty subtle and adds a good bit of depth. Full mouthfeel. Pretty well balanced and complex - nice.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle at home (BOE) 25/12/12. Pitch black with a decent tan head that collapses to the edge and leaves a film. Nose is dark chocolate, sweet sugars, dark malts, light wood and booze. Taste comprises roast malts, bitter dark chocolate, wood tones, molasses, touch of liqourice, booze. Full bodied with soft carbonation containg a touch of fizz, boozey sweet finish. A more than decent big and complex imperial stout!

12.7 oz bottle. Poured a dark black with a thick 3 finger dark brown head. Aroma is red wine mixed with a heavy imperial stout, very unique and interesting. The red wine barrels add a character that I haven’t had in any other stout. Taste is exquisite, starts with red wine, then chocolate.coffee rich dark malts and slight hop bitterness. Flavor is amazing like chocolate covered raisins. Silky smooth and heavy mouth feel. Great, excellent beer. Deserves a try from any one looking for a unique and tasty.imperial stout.
