4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle, nearly 2 years old, consumed whilst contemplating my hatred of Southern Hemisphere rugby teams. Black, small tan head, light lacing. Aroma is tangy manuka honey, slightly metallic. Body is medium, smooth, slightly foamy. Taste is malty, touch of coffee, some vanilla and chocolate. Lovely taste - very good beer. Though I have to say a) it doesn’t have the body of an imperial stout and b) given all the treatment this has been given (champagne yeast, 2 honey additions, 3 barrel treatments, 3 hops, bottle conditioning), this should be a lot more complex and getting a score nearer the elusive 5.0. Still, it’s farking good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Been in the cellar about two years. Just about black. Thick, lasting, tan head. Smoke. Cocoa. Dried vine fruits. Heather honey. Taste is cocoa sweet. Boozy, dark fruit dryness. Roast bitterness at the end. Earlier, the Missus said she fancied something, "Imperial, sweet, thick". This is what she got. Did she approve? "It’s alright", She said. I liked it, though...
