Osprey87 (1406) - WALES - MAY 27, 2014
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, Hackney. Black, no head - looks like oil. Aroma of liquorice, shoe polish. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is more liquorice, apple, bubblegum, tacky burnt rubber, slightly astringent. Sickly - too sweet for me.

jamesie1857 (1351) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
On cask at Kelham Island Tavern, Sheffield - BOOM! This was good. All the qualities of a good Imperial Stout, lots of coffee, liquorice, roasted malts etc on the nose, thick oily body with a silky vanilla ice-cream taste at the back end. Quality.

ladnewton (1401) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Cask at the Pembury Tavern on 23rd December 2013. Deep red-black with thin tan head and no lacing. Richly spicy roasty aroma. Aniseed, spice, coffee and Christmas pudding in-mouth, very solid flavours continuing into a roasty, spicy and fruity finish. A curious sweet apple note develops if drunk in larger sips; I was unsure if this note was intentional. Velvet mouthfeel; body suprisingly light for strength. Works well as a Christmas ale although I was advised it is available outside this period.

DanielBrown (3748) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Cask at Pembury Tavern, Hackney. Flat as a pancake. Sticky and very sweet. A bit lifeless. The licorice left me a little nonplussed. Will try again.

Beese (1540) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Cask at the Milton Keynes Beer Festival 2013. Poured a dark ruby with a scummy tan head. Aroma of molasses, dark rum and Oxo saltiness. Smooth mouth feel. Smoked flavours with some port and prunes. Finishes with roast malt, dark fruit and booze.

evergreen0199 (1949) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2013
Cask at St Albans beer festival 2013, Herts. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Roasty, malty, dark fruit aroma. Tastes roasty, malty, dark fruit, some chocolate in there, sweet and rich. Reminded me of a Victorian sweet shop. Very nice indeed.

EdKing (1800) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Cask in The Pembury Tavern. Very dark brown with rusty red hues in the light, thin tan head, oily looking. Nose is lots of dark ripe fruit, prune, plums, estery banana, sweet rotting fruit. Taste is banana, very light roasted malt, ruby ale, English hop, vanilla, lots of that ripe fruit character. Body is not thick. Touch watery yet oily. Finish is all dark fruit with alco kick. Nice but I like my impys with a bit more chocolate.

prawlie (1115) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Pint at the Nags Head in Reading. Bubbly yellow-brown head on a black beer. Smooth, light roast, boozy. Hint of nut and vanilla. Boozy sweet and malty aroma. Reasonable, but I wouldn’t go further than that.
