Average head, not creamy at all. Sturdy body with smoke and floral tones. Dark roast coffee in the flavor, and a good portion of hops. Gives a fresher impressions than Guinness. budznsudz (582) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2013
9.3oz. bottle. Pours dark black with a thick tan head that persists. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and soy sauce. Taste is roasted malt, char, licorice, soy sauce, and alcohol. Pretty nice. badgerben (5108) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2013
2012 Vintage, Bottle #070749. Black color with a small head. Strong sweet malt aroma with light cocoa. Very malty flavor. Light sherry, cocoa and coffee. Some alcohol noticeable. Very full bodied, yet quite carbonated. podol666 (8) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013 does not count
This courage stout is nice beer but to sweet. Nice deep colour but to haevy on stomach. I had few not its not good after r pints haha. Any way you have to try Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2013
275mL bottle from By the Bottle. May 2011 bottle date.
A: Pure ink black with a dense creme head. Pour is quicker than I might expect. Legs are noticeable.
N: Intense, smoke, leather, and tobacco. Prunes and raisins and rye bread. Very peppery. Dense and rich with a notable essence of dark fruits. Hops show up with the earth and peppercorn.
T: Bitter hops and bakerís chocolate dryness. Very very spicy in a black pepper way. Very much in the vein of the hopped-up stout.
M: Oily and medium heavy body. Very prickly. Could use some more heft, but the alcohol is well-hidden.
O: really good stuff. Itís well balanced and deft of hand. I want to buy more and age it for the long haul.

Really deep mahogany pour with ample tan head. Lots of chocolate on the nose, licorice, toasted malt, bread, and a slight earthy hop. Smells amazing, not as roasty as an American. Really powerful taste. Robust body with hit of coffee, chocolate, some dark fruit and a strong earthy hop finish. Bit of hot booze, but not overwhelming. More flavors come out as the beer warms, very complex and well made. A real treat from England. Thank you Catherine the Great for ordering this! nazzty (1376) - ÷dŚkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2013
Not really my cup of tea to be honest. Pretty weak with foam and a little too sweet. Gription79 (2886) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 17, 2013
Poured from a bottle thanks to Jeremy. We had this along side a 1975 and 1976 bottle. The older bottles were tastier beers. This had a odd fishy/smoky character, roasted malts, chocolate, malty. A good imperial stout. aenima (335) - Askim, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2013
Taste starts with coffee and dark chocolate. Roasted aftertaste. Nice but with the high ABV I would expect more taste and complexity. MikeJslc (778) - USA - APR 13, 2013
Brown, tan head. Nutty and bready malt, toffee, chocolate, biscuit, some light fruit, warming alcohol
