COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Used to be called "Valentine Beer" as well, though they seemed to have dropped that appellation. Roasted malt and sweetness of the malt flavor and give you a good taste imperial stout. Hop bitterness is prudent, using it for chocolate malt, coffee and chocolate-scented, perfect Valentine adult black ale. 7% alcohol taste and deliberate wanted the feeling comes through its rich flavor. Valentine, the original thoughts also fashioned beer labels.

Theydon_Bois (8302) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle at RBESG ’14, day 4 not so grand tasting at Craft Clerko, 10/08/14. Black topped with a dirty tan swirl and edgeing. Nose is big roast, light charr, dark chocolate, bitter toffee notes. Taste carries a faint lactic tone, toffee fudge, spice, rich chocolate. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Nice easy drinking impy, no huge depth to this one but a pleasant enough offering.

Westkyoto77 (515) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle. Good lord. What an absolutely wonderful beer. Fully deserves the accolades in my opinion. Sloe-black body, dark tan head. Rich aromas of damp malt, dark chocolate, and treacle. Luscious without being over-sticky. Flavours of the above, with soy sauce, prunes, and noticeable hop backbone. Quality from start to finish.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2014
Taster at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 25th May 2011. Deep black with a hint of head. Lots of roasted malt notes. Lighter than most imperial stouts and it benefits from that. Really good stuff.

Thisis12ptfont (836) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 28, 2014
On tap @ Beer Belly Edibori in Osaka, Japan. Aroma brings espresso, mocha, toffee, and Guinness like black malts. Appears a deep black with a thick half finger tan foam. Taste follows nose with strong espresso, mocha, thick black malt and Guinness overtones. Overall, My first Japanese Imperial Stout and it’s pretty damn good. Tastes like a Guinness on steroids. Very good stuff. A+ rating.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Not a great deal of nose, a touch of chocolate and that's it. A really nice chocolate and coffee taste which starts sweet then the hops come in at the end with a cracking bitter finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grumbo (563) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle from Tap East, Westfield, Stratford. Deep, dark brown colour with a tight beige head. Nice aroma of coffee, spice and toast. Good body, rich, quite thick, rather oily in texture. Slightly bitter chocolate finish. Pretty good.

600 yen half-pint on tap at the Tenma Beer Belly. A coffee/chocolate nose with a creamy smooth coffee flavor. Very easy to drink, sweet stout goodness. Creamy coffee taste, good stuff.
