September 23, 2017 - at Craft (Clerkenwell) - keg draught. Oh yes, because you want to cap off a long, long day of drinking with THIS ... Black pour, lasting light brown head - lovely. Big alcohol in that aroma, but big burnt chocolate brownie fudge too; with anise and a little prune tartness. Taste follows - big, boozy, burnt dark chocolate and a little cranberry and licorice - really grabs your attention. Thick alcoholic mouthfeel, decent keg carbonation, long somewhat bitter finish, but not all that much HOP bitterness, more from alcohol and huge overroast malt. Woo. Spoiler alert: no, I did NOT get mugged staggering back along Leather Ln to Chancery Lane station - or fall asleep on my mercifully short Tube ride back to Russell Square.

Ok impy but doesn't really pull out of third gear for me. DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2018
6/8/2016 -- from notes: 22oz bottle, from Dutch's. Batch 1. Up front, espresso, dark chocolate, moderate roast, mild spice - cinnamon, brown sugar. Touch of smoke on the back end? A long exhale was something like roast beef. Some definite bigger bitterness, and a bit of alcohol warmth. Finishes more dry, which is nice, because I feared that this would be cloying-sweet. It does have sort of a significant bite on the backend, though. Big body with a pretty nice thick chewiness to the texture -- it seems as if the beer is named more for the texture than the flavor. Color is black with a brown head, leaving some short ropes and bits of lace. Looks impressive enough. Solid, big imperial stout.. Was particurlarly nice once I started in on my sandwich. The bite dissipated somewhat, maybe the beer being able to breath a bit had something to do with that. CObiased (583) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2017
Bomber - it pours a coal black liquid with a med tan head. Big toasty aroma followed by baking chocolate, dark berries, a hint of chicory and burnt toast. Solid stout flavors but nothing spectacular with great roasted notes and a well hidden 12% abv. llkc (2969) - århus, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2017
