Bouteille 33cl, BB 11.04.2018, bottled on 11.04.2016 achetée à WholeFoods, London. Brune, col crémeux jaunâtre. Arôme est malté, chocolaté, fruité noir rappelant les pruneaux complété par de fines effluves de fumé versant sur le cendré. Effet rétro de toffee sur notes de réglisse. Nez un peu sirop, rappelant le sirop de Liège et mixe chocolaté. Palais est malté avec de suite un effet de fruité noir assez dominant. Pruneau et date. Petite amertume noble EKG anglaise. Effet levure retrouvant un profil bien anglais qcq esters - à la Fullers - petite épaisseur de fin de bouche. Fumé revient à la charge avec un léger côté réglisse. Effervescence reste moyenne sur haute renforçant l'effet de fruité et faisant ressortir l'amertume plutôt citronnée.

First thought - finally a good Imperial porter in the UK. Smokiness very subdued, in the background. Aftertaste sort of outstays its welcome though.

Keg at Euston Tap. Gorgeous beer! Jet black appearance tan head. Fills the nose with the most anticipating smokiness. Immediately the palate just sinks into the mouth. Coffee and rich bitterness but so luxurious. Where has this been all my life!?!? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
