Theydon_Bois (20427) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle at Chriso going Dutch tasting, 03/07/14. Extremely dark mahogany brown/light black with a mdoerate light tan covering that clears edgeward. Nose is roasty, light booze, dark malts, BA woody wafters, spice, dark fruits, cocoa nibs. Taste comprises dark fruits, cocoa rub, Jim Beam in the house. Medium + body, fine carbonations, semi drying close with light booze. Ok stuff, again as with Jack a little basic for an Impy but drinkable stuff none the less.

Craig on Heat Tasting at ChrisO’s. Lightly hazy deep red - amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is airy and light and semi dry. Fruity whiskey bourbon. Mild dark fruits. Bourbon biscuits and wet wood. As Craig says, little acetone in the light dry finish, but nowt serious.

harrisoni (19157) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle at Craig on heat tasting. Some barrel ageing. Umm just a stout with soy sauce and then a spirit added. Not good. Spirity and not my thing.

Bottle shared at chriso’s. Pours black-brown with a frothy, tan head. The nose has some tangy chocolate, charred wood, dirt. Medium sweet flavor, plenty of char, oily chocolate, some charred earth, dried cherries. Medium to full in body with fine carbonation. Boozy warmth to finish, more char, dark fruits, some iodine, wood. Not bad.

BenH (3436) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Black with tan head. Aroma has something sharp and tangy, I thought soap at first, bourbon oak. Taste is kind of soapy, might be hops, with oak and roast. Thin. Ok
