Smooth and soft dark malts, some dark malt cream. A touch of roast bitterness. Good coffee. Little dark fruits. Light semi dry finish. Nice one.

Keg at Route CBC, CBC Clapham, 02/10/15.
Pitch black topped with a dirty tan head that collapses to a neat swirl, a real looker of a bier!
Nose is big on coffee grinds, light spice, chocolate, toffee fudge, rich malt.
Taste comprises solid coffee licks, subtle barrel tones, chocolate, hint of dark fruits, malt backbone, subtle spice.
Full bodied, oily mouthfeel, warming alcohol in the close.
Solid coffee impy.

On tap at Craft Covent Garden, black beer lasting tan head. Big coffee on the aroma. Smooth imperial stout beneath it. Wow that is a sipping beer. The chocolate comes through. I mean itís superb. Beer of the day. Intense yet balanced. Some milk vanilla maybe. But the coffee and chocolate are amazing. Stunningly good. Itís smooth intense and glorious.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Route CBC, London. Black with tan foam. Aroma is quite shy to show itself. Just some light earthy roast and coffee. Taste knocks it up a notch. Explodes out with a thick malty assault on the tongue. Lots of dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Love the thickness of these CCB stouts. Really good stuff.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap. Pours pitch black with a creamy big tan head. Aroma is just a coffee bomb! All the flavours of the original is there, but then ad tons of coffee, different types. Fresh grind beans, fresh press coffee, espresso, coffee berries, dry cocoa powder. Taste is just pure blend of awesome coffee on a very balanced base. Loooong roasty finish with bitter coffee and dark chocolate. Full and so creamy body.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Route CBC. It pours jet black with a decent tan head. The nose is rich roast, espresso coffee, coffee cake, toasted coconut, umami, earth and wood. The taste is rich roast, espresso coffee, chewy malt, alcohol boost, mild acidity, cakey character and cacao nibs with a warming finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Pretty taste, but perhaps a bit hot and chewy. Good anyways.
