22oz bottle, reasonably priced at $7. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is dark bread, molasses. Flavor is dark chocolate, a hint of molasses. A touch thin for an impy stout, and there’s a bit of over-extracted coffee astringency in the finish. I’m surprised that this is so highly rated.

Maybe it was just my taste that day but this tasted like wet tobacco. I somehow think I missed something because the other ratings are favorable. I will say it is a nice dark pour.

Bottle. Dark brown in colour, small head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark bread and chocolate/coffee notes. In taste bitter chocolate. The beer is full bodied with bitter and quite dry finish. Good RIS.

BlackHaddock (7518) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
9th July 2016: on-tap in BierCaB Barcelona with the RBESG guys. Poured jet black with a small tanned head. Aroma was all about roasted malts with chocolate esters. The taste similar with chocolate flavours coming from the malty base: liked it. Good dry finish to a fine Imp Stout: another heavily alcohol brew during our session in BierCaB.

Zoret (484) - Badalona, SPAIN - JUL 17, 2016
D’ampolla al RBESG16. Cervesa fosca amb aromes dolços i torrats que recorden a cafè, cacau, brioix molt fet, xocolata i/o fruits secs. També es nota una mica l’alcohol. Cos mig-baix i final torrat/cremat. Bona!
