Bottle. Pitch black with beige head. Aroma of malts, roastiness, caramel, some wood and lots of dark chocolate. In taste medium sweet, malty with nice chocolate flavour, finish is roasty and herbal bitter. Full body, soft carbonation, nice texture, in finish slightly smoky. Really nice.

Roasted flavours, a bit lactosey also. Dark chocolate. Gets tastier when it gets a bit warmer so dont drink it too cold. It has a pretty full body, nice mouthfeel to it.

drjoeng (946) - SINGAPORE - AUG 30, 2016
7.4%ABV. Stout. Poured out black. 40SRM. It poured out the way I like impys to pour out, which is with an oily sinuous, darkly sinister slightly resinous physicality. Nose on this one is Chinese medicine, liniment, fresh roast coffee. Bourbon. Mouthfeel is smoky, light but with heavy. Palate has charred wood, bamboo charcoal. Palate has black bread, dark roasted barley, smoked wheat toast, like something youd do over wood fire. Clean noble hops. Finish is medium and heavy smoke. Goes on Favorites List !

colui72 (717) - HONG KONG - AUG 27, 2016
Whenever Buxton is involved with my palate its a joy! This is a very classic stout, extremely rich and tasty. It pours oil black with a medium brown head and good lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, smoke, chocolate fudge. Complex taste with roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather, vanilla. A thick dark treasure of dark lingering flavours. Perfect!

Plovmand (7933) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle. It pours jet black with a creamy brown head. The aroma is bitter dark chocolate, coffee, toffee and a little smoke. Mild roasted. Quite thick mouthfeel. Quite bitter roasted flavor that leaves notes of coffee, tobacco and light tar. Dark chocolate notes. Full flavored for the abv. Very nice!

3fourths (9213) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Bottled dated July 18 2014 pours black with a dark brown head of limited retention. Aroma impression is malty in the way of dark chocolate, roast, ash, nougat, fudge cake; yeasty-phenolic in the way of metal flakes / iron / blood; minimally hoppy and only slightly oxidized. Medium-full body, semi-sweet to off-dry, rich and savory with fine carbonation. I would prefer the carbonation be more lively-frothy, and would think more aroma hops would suit the phenol and malt well (though two years old is certainly no fair age to judge a beers hoppiness), but as it is its expressive and nuanced enough to make things interesting.
