1. Cask Stillage at the RUFC, Macclesfield 08/05/2004
Black slightly rich and smooth on the palate. Some roast malt in a bitter lasting finish.
2. Cask Stillage at the CIS Building, Manchester 29/01/2005
Black slightly rich and smooth on the palate. Some dryness and an oyster flavour finish. Ungstrup (38143) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2006
[Cask at the Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2005] A red-brown beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted combined with very light notes of hops. The flavor is very sweet with light notes of roasted malt, chocolate, vegetables, and celery. The alcohol prickles the tongue slightly. I wonder where the Imperial in the name comes from in a beer of 4.5% ABV? Mads Langtved (2243) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2006
Cask conditioned, GBBF 2005:
Artificial burnt aroma. Malty sweet body. Below average. Very weak and thin. tiggmtl (4544) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2005
Sweet, thick, chocolate aroma has notes of shoe leather. Opaque brown body with ruby highlights and a generous and lasting large-bubbled brown head. Roasty flavour up front with soy and chocolate character. Medium body is perhaps a bit thin for style with somewhat low carbonation. Cask at GBBF 2005.
harrisoni (19006) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2005
Gravity cask at Red Lion, Snargate, Kent. Black in colour. Chocolate malt nose, smokey charcoal. Full in mouth, some acids with bitter burnt malt on end leaparsons (10657) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2004
Very dark with a beige head. Aromas are roast malts, earthy and peaty with licourice. Flavours consist of lots of roast malts with coffee and a dry earthy palate. Has a dry finish with licourice bitterness. Surely not strong enough to be called an Imperial Stout! chriso (7583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2004
Well, its certainly a stout, and not a bad one at all, but its not an Imperial stout by any stretch of the imagination. Opaque, deep chestnut brown colour. Farmyard and coffee aroma. Espresso coffee and chocolate in the flavours. Dry finish with a bitter aftertaste. Rather impressive overall, but not enough complexity to score higher. Cask (gravity), Catford Beer Festival.
Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2004
[Cask conditioned] Very optimisitc to call a stout with only 4.5% an imperial stout. Lots of malty bitterness. Some fruitiness. Not very full bodied nor imperial, but a nice brew. pivo (2685) - GERMANY - AUG 26, 2003
TAP GBBF: Light toasted nose, lathery sticky head, opque dark brown color. Slow start in the taste profile, then bursts into a strong bitter roasted maltiness. molasses in the middle , then an espresso-like finish. Clean palate, not very complex but decent all around. Too thin for a stout?
