UPDATED: DEC 6, 2011 Cask @ The 3 judges. Almost black colour, good head. Creamy malt aroma. Spicy malt flavour. Very smooth. Not a bad stout.

Pitch black, off white head. Light chocolate aroma. Rich chocolate and malt aroma, a dash of bitter hop. Burnt toffee aftertaste. Really very nice.

Bought a bottle of Gorlovka from Asda & enjoyed it at the end of an evening, this ale is quality very hoppy full bodied stout with lots of flavours of liquorice & fruits. really tasty, different league to Guiness in my book. better looking new bottle too & like the Russian name.

Cas. Malty with a whiff of gravy powder on the nose. Dark as befits an imperial stout but the tan top could be improved in terms of creamy texture. Taste has smooth roasted malt with a little fruit flitting through.and some coffee notes in the finish. Imperial stout is not an easy style to master. I have yet to find my archetype but this isn’t it.

partiamo dal presupposto che non è un’imperial stout, stoutina da 6° carina ma niente di più

Handpull cask at the Kelham Island Tavern. Dark brown, only slightly translucent. Big tan head. Smells of sulphur and Bisto, not actively unpleasant but not enticing and certainly not beery. Taste is a different world altogether. Sweet, almost milky, with a strong tinge of liquorice and the slightest hint of clove. Nice full body with bitterness in the aftertaste. Not perfect but dangerously quaffable.

[7733-20150926] Cask. Mild chocolate grains aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown cola body with a big long-lasting creamy light tan head and some spotted lacing. Bitter celery grains flavour has a mineral aftertaste. Medium body has a funky feel to it. Good. (7/4+/7/3/15) 3.6
