MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2007
A Mes rate:
Gravicask at GBBF. Lovely purple black colour. Smoky malt aroma with hints of coffee and a slight lick of hops. Not sure how "imperial" it is but it’s certainly stouty and it does drink above its strength. A fair bit of old ale character about it. Dark and earthy. Dusty malt finish. Very tasty.
