evergreen0199 (2260) - 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 (2073) - 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 (1234) - 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.

Scopey (8328) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Cask at Pembury Tavern. It pours darkest brown/near black with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, earth, dark chocolate, liquorice, treacle and ripe blueberry. The taste is mellow roast, toast, charcoal, berry, blackcurrant jam, plum, earth, liquorice and touch of alcohol warmth with a dry finish. Medium-full body and soft carbonation. Rather quaffable fruity strong stout.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2013
Syrupy, initially bitter, then fading to a sweet and sustained aftertaste. An appealing appearance, very dark, with very moderate carbonation and a tiny amount of white bubbles. A lovely beer to sip gently but it gets too sweet after half a pint.

downender (6718) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
On gravity at the winter beer festival, the Three Tuns, Bristol 23/2/2013. Near black with a thin tan head. Aroma of vanilla fudge, milk chocolate and some toasty malts. Flavour was sweet, with more chocolate, leading to a very smooth, dryish finish with a touch of warming alcohol. Good, but too sweet for my taste.

CASK Pours like crude oil into the glass with little head or lacing but a stillness that you can get lost in and legs like a glass of Borolo (maybe not that leggy but nice still!) Aromas of Cocoa, molasses, Licorice, and a hint of coffee bitterness. the taste is similar but way more intence on the licorice slightly more on the Molasses and more of a sweet chocolate flavor at the begining with the same slight bitter coffee towards the end. An oily texture, Low carbonation and a fantastic full body, falls down the throat and filled me with warmth. A great beer that I will seek out in the future. Overall one that is again better than the sum of its parts.
