At 10% ABV, this monster Baltic-style stout shows up big and roasty like an imperial stout, but the beer is actually fermented with German lager yeast.

Theydon_Bois (12925) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2015
Bottle split at Bruces pad - for the last time, big thanks to Manny G, 27/03/15. Black with a dirty tan covering. Nose is rich chocolate fudge, raisnes, dark fruit rinds, chocolate pudding, light coconut, bourbon tones, spice - great fumeage. Taste comprises dark fruits, molasses, chocolate, toffee fudge, roasted tones, light spice. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light warming alcohol in the close. Decent decadent stout, good balance and a well rounded affair.

Swan Song at Bruce’s. Thanks to MannyG for this treat. Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Nice dark chocolate nose. Palate is airy and a little soft. Taste follows the nose, great dark chocolate. Nice dark malt cream. Little alcohol spice. Modest toasted coconut and well controlled fruity bourbon. Smooth finish, very slightly savoury. Soft and very drinkable.

Bottle share, big thanks to MannyGoldberg. Rate #2500 for me. Pitch black, small ring of brown head. Aroma is burnt coconut, fudge, liquorice, vanilla. Really nice. Body is medium, a little foamy, touch of carbonation. Taste is medium sweet with liquorice, coconut, molasses, chocolate. Finishes tangy and dry. Very good.
