This is in the style of a traditional imperial Russian stout, but at a lower-than-usual strength. It has a deep, rich and burnt flavour which complements the biscuity malt character, balanced by large quantities of hops

Towey1989 (1820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, fudge, some roasted malts, slight caramel and subtle smoke. Taste of chocolate, fudge, some roasted malts, slight caramel, a little raisin, subtle liquorice and spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, roasted, chocolatey bitterness in the finish. A flavourful, chocolatey, fudge flavoured stout. Subtle fruit breaks the malty, fudginess of the beer. A great titanic beer.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 31 March 2014. Poured black with a dense, tan head. Aroma of smoked malt, leather and that slightly fishy edge, that stouts sometimes get (just me?). Burnt malt flavours, with dark chocolate and assertive, bitter hops. Full, thick mouth feel. Finish was bitter, burnt toast, dark fruit and spice. Beer of the JDW Festival, for me.
