Leighton (21239) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Cheers! Pours mostly clear brown-black with a creamy, beige head. Meaty aroma, with lots of dark malts, light metal, roast. Medium sweet flavour with ashy roast, baking cocoa, scorched earth. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Rich dark malts in the finish, with more bitter chocolate. Nice stuff.

The_Osprey (7984) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle share at Chriso’s. Black, small foamy tan head. Aroma is very sweet and sickly with treacle and some booze. Quite one-dimensional. Body is light, soft carbonation, foamy. Taste is sweet with booze showing up, thin ashiness, dry finish. Pretty below-par imperial stout.

Scopey (14723) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle at Pre-GBBF Shindig 2015. It pours near black / darkest brown with a tiny beige head. The nose is soft, rich roasted maltage, earth, coffee, toasted sugars and sweet caramel. The taste is sweet, oily, boozy warmth, earthy roast, charred wood, umami, maltesers, dark fruit and toffee with a warming finish. Medium - full body and fine carbonation. A bit sweet and charry. Alright I suppose.
