It’s big. It’s a mofo. Trading standards are happy. So am I. Happy that is. The first few mouthfuls were bitter and resinous, and this gave way to a smoothness with liquorice. So there you have it, it is big and it is clever. olie (22) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2012
bottle from William 4th, Leyton. Very dark, thick brown creamy head. Aroma quite hoppy but with bit of coffee, licorice, smoke. rich flavour, hints of tobacco, licorice, chocolate, pine, only tiny hint from the cranberries. Creamy, full mouthfeel. beautiful and complex imperial stout, and amazingly cheap for what it is. chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Cask at Brodies festival, King William IV, Leyton on 8 April 2012. Some confusion about what this was when we were drinking it. Black and rich. Lots of coffee and chocolate. Licorice is noticeable. Cranberry surprisingly less so. As well as the usual imperial stout character it was also strongly resinous and hoppy. Interesting and very enjoyable.

Bottle at the Cock Tavern, Hackney, London on 20th July 2012. Deep brown-black with tan head. Rich spicy aroma. Thickly hoppy and citric with burnt malt and smoke in-mouth. Spicy, tangy kick then citric, smoky aftertaste. Exquisite. Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2012
In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thin tan head. A hoppy pine aroma before chocolate, roasty malt, liquorice and a vegetal mescal character. Similar flavours with some lingering black pepper and dark chocolate. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely.
