Had to rate this as my 100. This Eng Imp is wonderful. The rich malts are such a big part of this 5/5 brew. Real great head and carbonation. The flavor is slightly sweet and so roasty to balance. Such a great tasting brew A++++ daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 22, 2012

Bottle shared by Sparky @ Woodshed 1.0! On the edge of ebony with a small chestnut head. Creamy, velvety texture with loads of fudge, chocolate chunk, and Hershey’s syrup. Coffee, vanilla, brown sugar, and molasses are there as well. The sweetness isn’t overly aggressive...just right!

03-MAR-2012, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer".
Black with low brown head.
Licorice nose with some chocolate.
Taste is even more chocolate, almost licorice root - that woody note is there. A little peaty but not as complex as the ordinary BORIS that I still prefer. Also too expensive. madsberg (11762) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2012

Sampled @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. A black body with a creamy dark brown head that disappears quite fast. Fantastic aroma of dark, roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is sweet, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dry fruit, fruity hops and a well balanced bitterness. Full body and a long and smooth aftertaste. Might be the place and the time, but this one really makes me happy. bax (1311) - Hasselager, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2012

In bottle, thanks Craig! Pours a very dark brown colour. Aroma of toasted coconut, vanilla, creme brulee, caramel and chocolate. Similar flavours again with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Mildly bitter with lingering alcohol, chocolate and raisins. Lovely.
