Tap @ BBF 11. Pitch black with almost no head. Chocolate in the aroma. Lots and lots of chocolate in the aftertaste. Malts, hops and roasted hints. Just a great Imperial Stout! Love the chocolate!

Cask, 8.2% at Borefts 2011. Fruity and herbal aroma. Almost black colour, seems cloudy. The flavour starts off fruity, turning rather roasted. Good fruity aroma hop, almost teaish. Solid alcohol presence.
