The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2016
500ml bottle picked up in Crosby, drank at home in Richmond as Liverpool Organic Imperial Russian Stout, 7.5%, BB Dec 2016. Black, opaque with a big foamy dense brown head, leaving thick lacing. Aroma reminds me of being in clubs as a teenager - sort of like Red Bull soaked into a well-trodden carpet, spicy Aftershock shots. I would say its nostalgic, but thats not true. Body is quite light, smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is thin sugary malt, tangy red berry and booze that suggests its stronger than it is, some resin. Its not bad really - its just one of those sweet old school malty stouts that will hopefully soon be superseded by the new wave. Malty, a bit spicy, molasses, some booze, not enough bitterness. It grew on me and its very drinkable for the ABV in fairness.

MarcinG (755) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Butelka 500ml. Czarne o szczatkowej brazowej pianie. Aromat kawy czekolady lukrecji i palonych cukrow. W smaku podobnie . Kawa i czekolada. Alkohol w tle nie przeszkadza. Po glebszym zastanowieniu stwierdzam ze w glebi wyczuc mozna lekki zapach kuwety lub moczu. Ogolnie ok ale wrazenie zapachowe psuje powyzsze.

Cask. Dulcimer, Manchester, UK. Good looking dark stout but over lively yeast and vinegar dominating an otherwise rich roasted molasses brew.
