The_Osprey (7998) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Cask. Black with a dense, foamy tan head, leaves full lacing. Aroma is chocolate, leather. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is roasted barley, date, touch of ash, slight metallic tang. A very drinkable stout … but probably trying to push the definition of an imperial stout a bit too far! Ferris (15354) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Cask - Dark roast and bitter sweet chocolate. Jet black with a rich beige head. Creamy roast with some nice bittersweet chocolate. Very decent. elbernays (1509) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 8, 2013
Half at 5 bells Kent. Dark deep red. White foam head. Some coffee, wood and burnt notes. Light body for a stout. Smoky on palate with a tinge of bitterness. Bit of a watery finish which let’s it down. Okay Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Cask at Battersea Beer Festival, 9th Feb 2011. Very dark brown with a small bubbly tan head. Rich, roasted coffee and chocolate nose. Burnt notes at the back of the throat give it a persistent aftertaste. Smooth but the burnt toast flavours would put me off having another.
