Masterful brew - classic Thornbridge: at once both defining and redefining a style. Rich and heady with the honey packing a punch. Not an imperial stout but a clear traditional ale. Not much else to say but this is one of the best english regular beers - file in the same category as VIntage Ale etc.
Bottle, 2015 vintage. Thanks to wombata. Very rich dark fruit nose, a bit nutty, with dark sugar and some alcohol fumes. Dark brown color, flat. Mild chocolate, small bit of berries, sweet cake, licorice, and marshmallows. Medium-heavy body, and very smooth. Lots of complexity and balanced. Great. oberschlesier (216) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - JAN 13, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Aroma: dry fruits, chocolate covered cherries, some paper/anise/liquorice notes.
Taste: nothing much more than paper/anise/liquorice.
Beer has really good head, average carbonation. MeadTeam9 (47) - - JAN 13, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Couleur noir foncé. Nez splendide sur le café et des notes de miel. Bouche intense, tourbée, avec une finale d'une longueur fabuleuse. KyotoLefty (10810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 3, 2018

Bottle share at Mon Petit Cafe Stuttgart. Sweet, dense, herbal. Some honey notes, some toffee. Cokemonkey11 (1123) - - DEC 4, 2017
Bottle. Black with a generous ruby hued amber foam. Scent is strong notes of dark fruit character. Very central European. Taste is consistent, fairly mild, smooth, and warming. Dark fruit. Toffee. Raisins. Mouth feels quite dense yet the mild flavor profile is appreciated. A bit of sour notes. Excellent, if mild. jrodooo5 (1749) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - NOV 17, 2017
Simply outstanding! Lovely black pour w/ a thin mocha head that leaves good lacing. The aroma really shows off the honey as well as dark malt & chocolate. The flavor is dominated by roasted notes but it's deep & complex. Thick & chewy on the palate. This is an experience & a must try! Bravo! wojanex (556) - warszawa, POLAND - OCT 31, 2017
