Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s deep brown with a small white head. The nose is molasses, and chocolate. Some cinnamon and maple syrup sweetness. A bit woody, hints of roasted coffee. The taste is full of oatmeal, a bit grainy. Some nice soft chocolate and more woody notes. Medium body. Not flashy, but decent. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2012

pre-gbbf shindig 2012 (not mentioning imperial on the bottle). Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is fruity, ashy, roasted malts, some mild toffee and coffee. Flavour is quite much similar in a nice balance.

Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012. It pours very dark brown, with pretty much no head. The nose is sticky caramel, toffee, chocolate, touch of balsamic vinegar and wood. The taste is roasted malt, wood, leather, charcoal, bitter chocolate and caramel, with a dry, leathery finish. Medium body and low, slightly prickly carbonation. Not much to it, but a decent enough beer.

Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2012. Black in colour with a fine tan head on the pour. A decent choccy, roasty & oaty stout with a solid rum, raisin & prune sweet impy character beneath. Medium body, softish in the palate with a dryish, ashy bitterness towards the finish. A good beer but would benefit from extra oomph overall for my liking. harrisoni (19003) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012

Tap at Draft Pick. Pours black with a nice khaki head. Roasted aroma with chocolate and a hint of licorice. Flavor is the same with a good amount of bitterness. Full body. Good brew. StefanSD (2451) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2012
12 oz bottle from Crajun. Thanks. Pours an opaque black color with a small brown head that has fair retention. The aroma is pungent with dark fruits, mocha, liqueurs and blackened barley. The flavor features lots of roasty notes including burnt toast, grains, walnuts and earthy hops. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finished medium in duration. Overall: A respectable stout, very tasty.
