bottle at home. Pours with a brown head and very black. Strong smell of coffee but didnt pick up any tasting it, Is going down a treat brillant beer theprof (1464) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2018
Tap at the Canal House. Pours ebony black body and foamy mocha to, diminishing lacing. Aroma profoundly dark roasted malts with licorice and dark chocolate notes. Taste is medium bitter with a little ashy aftertaste. Palate is medium bodied with sticky texture, average carbonation, and said bitter ashes in the finish although that is not as bad as it sounds! Oddly enough this is listed as a foreign stout which may be a swipe at Derbyshire given that I am in Nottingham. Holmen2 (4393) - NORWAY - JAN 7, 2018
From keg at Port Street Beer House, Manchester, with OGJ 07.01.18. Ebony. Diminsihing brown head. Dense and persistent lacing. Excellently balanced aroma and taste of pine, rosted barley, tar and cigar box. Pine bitterness is lingering on. wozap (1052) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - JAN 3, 2018

Czarne nieprzejrzyste, piana drobna brązowa, bardzo trwała, zdobi szkło. Aromat to przede wszystkim palona kawa i gorzka czekolada. Gładkie, nisko nasycone, powoli spływa po gardle, jest przyjemnie wytrawne. Smak to zarówno kawa i gorzka czekalada jak i wyraźna paloność na finiszu.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2018 33 cl bottle served in a snifter. Poured black with two finger mocha tan head. Aroma: lotsa chocolate, vanilla, toffee, leather, dark fruit, smoke, coffee. Taste: dark chocolate, vanilla, toffee, dark fruit, licorice, umami/soy sauce, smoked ham, roasted nuts, raisins, dates, dark roasted espresso beans, graham crackers, leather, devil's food cake. Superb chewy and creamy mouthfeel, this could easily pass off as an imperial stout. Full body with a roasted bittersweet finish. Awesome brew!

Bottle from John's Marketplace. Only listed as Extra Stout. Pours a pitch black color with a medium brown head. A huge roasted malt and toffee nose. The aroma is so amazing it just sets it all up. Huge roasted malt metallic flavors, dark fruit, prunes, caramel and toffee. Damn good. This is one of the best tasting beers I've had. Perfect roast. The best Impys are like this but so big that it can't be everyday. This could be. Lovely. Great slick palate. Wow. CloakedDagger (3008) - - DEC 5, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Comes as "Winter Stout". Pours an opaque black with a dense, light brown head. Super intense aroma of English licorice and a little bitter chocolate. Rich, full, sweet body of slightly salty licorice notes, medium roast. Vague hint of coffee. A little roasty bitterness. Excellent Stout, for lesser breweries this could pass as an Imperial Stout. 051217 TEJA (3392) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2017

Ar: Dark booze and treacle; ash, nougat, sherry; deep dark chocolate. Ap: Black and opaque; medium0small mocha head with moderate-low retention, settling into a ring of medium bubbles and a thin covering of foam. T: Dark, very burnt caramel; licorice, ash, and dark chocolate; mild but foundational sweetness; medium-high bitterness, but fairly clean, with a vinous and soil-like hop flavor; lot of dark chocolate on the finish. P: Medium-full body, truly creamy and smooth; carbonation if medium-low; finish is medium-dry. O: This is a spectacular, masterful beer; the depth of burnt caramel and chocolate flavor is astounding, and the beer presents the perfect mouthfeel to go along with the brilliant flavors.
