COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer that won our head brewer Bryan awards back in his home brew days. With honey, molasses and freshly roasted coffee beans added to the boil this is a complex, lightly carbonated imperial stout weighing in at 9.2%. It was also a big part of brewing our light weight beer Dark Hopfler, so if this goes down well, we hope to brew them both again soon. We have also hidden some of this away in a Heaven Hill barrel and an Ardbeg barrel, so keep an eye out for them sometime too.

Roasted aroma and rich nutty taste. Dark cocoa as well. A little sourness that hits the tongue. Not watery. A good dark beer.

tomekboniek (468) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Zabutelkowany Dec’14 a wiec trochę czasu minęło. Z informacji od browaru wynika, że piwo leżakuje 6 miesięcy aby upewnić się, ze jest gotowe do spożycia. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana beżowa, średniej wysokości, znika do nieznaczącej wysokości. Ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat intensywny, kawy, gorzkiej czekolady, palonych słodów. W smaku odczucie mocnej lecz gorzkiej kawy, który zalega na podniebieniu. Na drugim planie gorzka czekolada. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego, niezalegająca. Goryczka również średnia do wysokiej, zalegająca posmakiem gorzkiej kawy. Piwo jest pełne, ale nie wyklejające, gładkie, treściwe.. Niezłe, warte swojej ceny.

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016
On tap at BrewDog Clerkenwell. black beer lasting tan head. Thick impy stout aroma. Some light soy sauce. Chocolatesome coffee but light some soy sauce but light. OK. Not bland exactly . Just distinctly competent. It’s fine. No obvious abv. But it warms the cockles. Ticks a lot of boxes without moving too much into the excitement realm. OK though thick in mouth good dark chocolate.

Barwa ciemna nie przejrzysta Piana drobna i długo jest, powoli osiada Zapach kawa i bardzo gorzka czekolada, trochę palności, lekko słodkie ciemne owoce, miód, słodki Smak dosyć pełny ale delikatne, gorzka czekolada, posmak kawy kwaśny Wysycenie niskie, lekko rozgrzewa alko Opakowanie dziwne ale raczej nic specjalnego Podsumowując bardzo dobry imperial, delikatnie palony, mocno kawowy i gorzko czekoladowy,polecam, warto spróbować

peponi (1373) - Mainz, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2016
Aroma: soya sauce, ashy, alcohol, bitter chocolate. Appearance: black color and brown head. Taste: medium bitterness, warming alcohol, bitter chocolate, ashy, coffee, roasted, semi-dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation. Overall: Decent RIS, maybe should be a little bit more smooth and more roasted.

Gluepot (392) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2016 A dense, frothy dark tan head on a near black body. Lacing holds to the top of the glass. Nose is fresh ground coffee, cocoa and a touch of booze. Lots of tastes going on here. Fresh ground coffee, cocoa, oak, dark berries, whiskey, ash and a bitter finish. Very dry and dense. The bitterness, oak and ash make this a more challenging taste profile than many ISs.
