Medium dark brown head. Opaque black body. Roasty toffee and
marzipan aroma with chocolatey notes. Dry-sweet roasty toffee

Sharpish, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dry roasty resiny minty

delicately balanced vivid flavours. (0.5l bottle, from Kihoskh,
Copenhagen.) antonstoop (329) - - OCT 5, 2013
A dark brown beer, with a nice beige head. An unclear beer, probably refermented. In the nose there is bitter from roasted malts, but also from hops. It is fresh smel, with some alcohol. A full bodied and creamy beer, with a low but very fine carbonation. The beer has rich taste of: coffee, hop, alcohol and malt. The aftertaste is strong coffee, long and light alcoholic. A very nice rich creamy imp. Stout.

Bottle share at the Rainbow IPA mini event at the King William IV. Thanks to Colin (although you might wanna try some yourself mate lol!). Almost opaque dark brown beer with a small pale tan head. Nice creamy dark malt with a touch of coffee and a whisper of dark chocolate. Tangy and slightly bitter dried fruits. Dry finish. Like the front end, the back end - not so much!
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2013 Tap at Borefts ’13 after my bottle of this got snaffled by the thirsty London Crew in the beer garden of the William IV some 6 days previosuly before I’d had chance to rate it, 27/09/13.
Black with a thin tan head that retains well.
Nose carries a roast malt blast, light smoke, dark chocolate, earthy tones.
Taste comprises roast malts, milk chocolate, tar, molasses.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, roasty tones in the finale.
Solid enough impy.
