COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fremantle brewing maestros, Sail & Anchor, have released a limited edition Imperial Stout just in time for the cooler months - the perfect winter warmer. The Stout itself is characterised by a strong malt character and a deep, palate covering caramel sweetness which plays ever brilliantly well with the hop bitterness which come in at 60 IBUs. Notes of espresso coffee and dark chocolate finish off this dark and refreshing Imperial Stout that is a perfect match for a dark chocolate dessert or an open fire.

Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Very tasty. Aromas of coffee, vanilla. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Syrupy, and full bodied. Black, with disappearing head.

Great stout, creamy head, pours dark black. Tastes of chocolate, sultanas, coffee and umps. Lingers long on the palette with a slightly bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. It might look like tar but it tastes a whole lot better. Thick black colour in the glass with a full thick mouthfeel.

oh boy I am a sucker for an Imperial Stout. Licorice, chocolate, cocoa and a hint of cherry on the nose. Palate has all the same flavours and a hint of oiliness and alcohol heat on the end. Good bitterness at the end and a long slightly drying finish.

Excellent example of a Imperial Stout, malty, chocolate, toffee and roasty with a balanced hop bitterness. From DM’s Beenleigh

[500ml bottle, courtesy of Sevare] Black as the proverbial. Beige lacing. Soft chocolate roast on the nose, yet on the flavour, some coffee appears alongside. Still heavy choc on the finish. Alcohol takes a back seat. Nice stuff [21062013]

Black pour with a thin but persistent tan head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, slightly roasted malt. Flavour is black coffee, slightly sweet, dark chocolate. Pretty good!
