Looks great in the purple, black with a huge cappuccino foam head that lasts almost as long as the drink. Delicious charred chocolate aromas waft up. Flavor adds sweet malt presence, but with some unpleasant alcohol aftertaste. Smooth and thick mouthfeel characteristic of the style with a dry and almost chalky finish. Approachable and easily found imperial stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark hue with tan head. Aroma is charred malt, caramel, esters, figs, resin, chocolate, leather. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and good carbonation. Taste is dry initially with astringent bitterness in the following, overall this is a nice imperial.

Draught at The Craic. What a legendary beer. Black as pitch, deceptively thin tan head. Aromas of dark choc carried on hops hit you from a good distance. Rich mouthfeel. Hops don't get in the way of chocolate, espresso and malt. Fantastic flavours. A winner.

Bue à la pression. Amertume présente dès l’attaque. Plutôt corpulente, on note des arômes de café, d’alcool.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste chocolate, roasted malt. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

Pours a dark black with thick light brown head. Has a strong coffee, roasted malt and chocolate aroma. A very creamy beer with a bitter coffee, cocoa, dark fruit, and light malt taste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at The Antelope in Surbiton. Strong hop profile, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, quite a sweet finish with alcohol evident. Really full-bodied making it an incredibly satisfying mouthful. Might have been wise to take more time savouring this though rather than drinking it quickly and moving onto whiskies.
