This beer may suffer from the fact that it is a 10.5% imp stout drank on the 4th of July at the beach after eating 3 burgers. but man this was tough to finish. Huge syrupy sweet beer with a lot going on. Sweet caramel and big bold coffee and cocoa notes. Smooth but thick and sweet.

Ed strikes again! A generous fellow. Aroma has lots of honey and very slight clove as a result, dark chocolate and raisin. Appearance is oily black with bubbly mocha head. Flavor matches the nose; a touch of smoke, and overall intense, deep and dry. Palate is medium, oily and pillowy soft. I thought this was excellent.

DiarmaidBHK (3370) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Draft from Amos Howard’s. Pours black with an inch of thick khaki foam. Some chocolate roast notes on the nose. Lots of roasted malt on the tongue. I get a touch of the honey as well both in terms of sweetness but also a slight slickness in the mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden but gives off a nice warming feeling on the finish. Solid!

Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London. Many thanks to Bruce for this one. Pours black with a creamy, tan cap. Big dark chocolate aroma, some iodine character. Medium to big sweet flavor with lightly charred malts, smoke, chocolate cake, earth, salt. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate warmth on the finish, some burnt wood, cocoa. Nice.
