Bottles. Bottled Nov 2008; (1) Drank Feb 2009, (2) Drank Nov 2009. Pitch Black in colour. Very Malty: bitter espresso coffee, roast/burnt malts, dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla, oak. Heavily hopped (spicy hops). Oily, slightly tarry. Alcohol very well disguised. (1) Very bitter roast coffee flavour throughout makes this quite an extreme beer; but (2) seemed to have mellowed out considerably and now less bitter, less extreme. Long dry bitter roast finish. Lovely Beer! (2009-02)

Bottle shared at chriso’s Post-GBBF Shindig 2014 - London. Thanks to Fin for this one. Pours clear, ruby-brown with a frothy beige head. The nose holds some lightly dusty, aged coffee character. Medium sweet flavor with hints of chili pepper and old coffee, some earthy bitterness, cocoa. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with relaxed roasted malts and further dusty cocoa. A bit faded but still decent. mR_fr0g (13505) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014

Sweet coffee and chocolate aroma. Head that dies quick. Pitch black body. A little sweet for me... A little over carbonated, but still soft. Theydon_Bois (20628) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014

Bottle, as BD & Danish Beerhouse, deep brown with little head, nose is old wine barrels, plus umami and faint cocoa. Fairly light texture for an Imp Stout, with light milk coffee notes, touches of old red wine, dry cocoa finish. Stuu666 (14843) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2014

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The look is clear, brownish, with a thin beige colored head. The smell is roast, coffee, malts, toast, and chocolate. The taste is malts, roast, coffee, and toast. zimbo (971) - SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
nice meaty nose sort of flat carb light brown thin. lacks intensity and depth. Surely the lightest IS I’’ve had in a long time
