coffee, nuts, roasty, black, minimal head, medium bitterness, light sweetness, medium body, creamy. Strong nutty coffee aroma. Immediate bitterness upon tasting, but the sweetness lingers. Seems to improve as you drink it. Surprised by this.

Heidbummer (981) - SCOTLAND - NOV 14, 2017
Keg, Brewdog Shepherds Bush. Pours black/brown with big tan head. Aroma of porridge, coffee, yeast, cognac. Taste is dry, lots of roast, booze, some dark fruit. It's thin for the abv but dangerously drinkable as a result. Very good.

rodsquad (379) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle from JK Fine Foods. The beer looks the business as darkest brown with a creamy light tan head. Spot on. Nose is fantastic too. Treacle with the roast and fudge with the sweet. The overall impression is a smooth creaminess. Nothing harsh, just deep and layered. The flavours with the smooth cream and roast gives the impression coffee is involved here. There’s loads of lovely chocolate also. The palate let me down though. It felt too light with an medium to full body and a bit to fizzy. But it gets so much better. Once this drink acclimatises to the room (and I assume its correct serving temperature) it comes alive. The smooth roast character with chocolate and creaminess bowled me over. Next time I’ll let it breath before I inhale it.

imdownthepub (15524) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2017
Bottled, 500ml at The Cambridge Bar, Edinburgh. Very dark brown with cream head. Quite a rich, darkly roasted malty stout, fruity, peachy, apricot showing the alcohol a little. Late bitterness from the malts. Good.

Imperial oatmeal stout de 7 % abv, ce qui est un peu djeuste … Attention on brasse ici en organique, par peur des grands vents d’hiver …(Inverness) Mon exemplaire était à 8 mois avant sa date. Couleur noire à reflets marrons, et à l’opacité forte. Mousse brun moyen, très épaisse, avec des cratères en haut, stable à 6 mm. Arômes de café, chocolat, malt torréfié, bois (organique). 1ère bouche souple, à la belle entame café/chocolat/ganache. Arrière-bouche sur du moka, longue. 2ème aux belles saveurs, café et fève de cacao. Arrière-bouche en harmonie, avec des rétro-nez bien café. 3ème à la belle suite, quoique moins ample. Arrière-bouche jolie. Longueur agréable, mais elle manque d’ampleur. Jambes fines, longues. Levure douce, fine, belle ligne. Alcool : c’est le point faible de cette bière, il est trop juste et pénalise la longueur. Finale qui est dès lors sous son potentiel … CONCLUSION : une bière qui est une sorte de comble pour l’Ecosse, qui ne manque pourtant pas d’alcool .. Elle est trop faible, et ne permet pas de pousser les saveurs à leur développement maximum. Organique peut-être, mais à quoi bon ? (8/5/8/3/16)
