Bottle shared with friends, poured a dark black color with aromas of roast, coffee, vanilla, chillies, earth, and som rum. Flavors were chocolate covered chillies that were soaking in rum, after a few sips, more earth flavors and some tobacco come out. As the bottle warmed, more rum flavors started to show, another outstanding stout from these guys. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013

THE stout tasting Pt1. Opaque black beer, big tan head. Palate is light and a little airy. Rich dark chocolate and slightly earthy coffee. Tangy dark fruits with a little rum. Vanilla and spices bring up the mildly warming finish. Very nice!
Bottle at The Stout Tasting Part I, London - many thanks to Kenneth M. for sharing this beast. Pours black-brown with a creamy, brown head. Lovely nose, full of rich dark malts, dark bread, dark fruits - especially berries. Medium to big sweet flavour with rich brownies, black raspberries, brown sugar and dark chocolate. Full bodied with fine carbonation and a chewy mouthfeel. Warming finish with chocolate pudding, dark berries, some chili pepper, woody vinous notes, more brownies. Great stuff, really. hallinghansen (3192) - Odense SV, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2013

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Black with a dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruit, vanilla, wood and alcohol. Flavor is very sweet and very bitter. Dry and roasted rather bitter finish with warming alcohol. Oily but a bit rough. 110113 Dedollewaitor (16170) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2013

Bottle @ THE Stout Tasting. Massive thanks to Ken for showing up with this! The pour’s deep brown with a tiny head. The aroma’s faint chili, chocolate, orange peel, some fudge and rich, smoky wood. The taste is rich chili-spiked chocolate, allspice, ash. Wood and yellow apples. Some raisin, hot rum finish. Full body, oily. Thick and luxurious palate. Overall, an excellent imperial stout. A great treatment of the base beer! Scopey (14736) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle at THE stout tasting - part 1, thanks to Ken. It pours jet black with a medium tan head. The nose is roasted malt, dark fruit, rum, treacle, toasted coconut, vanilla, fudge and warming alcohol. The taste is bitter-sweet, rich-roasted malt, alcohol warmth, rum, dark fruit (plum, prune and the like), vanilla, hint of spice, toasted coconut, nice bitterness and mild acidity. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Good depth of flavour and a lot smooth than I had expected. Very good indeed.
