Aroma: milk chocolate, toasted malts, caramel, dark, dried and sweet fruits. Appearance: dark brown, no head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: light bitters continue, coffee, chocolate again, dark berries. Overall: very decent Imperial Stout, not too overpowering, well-balanced, complex for the low ABV. Pint at Bath Pavilion Beer and Cider Festival, Bath.

tombyars (1749) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Tasted this at the Glasgow Real Ale Festival at the Briggait on the 26th June 2015. For me it was best beer of the festival. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black with a thin buff head which rapidly vanished. Cracking malty aroma with strong sweet mincemeat pie notes mixing with treacle. Smooth oily thin mouthfeel with no lacing at all. Dark complex malts give booming sweet notes of treacle toffee, liquorice, dark chocolate and syrupy dates all in the mouth. Could not detect any any hop resins in the aftertaste just a hint of roast grain. Malt comes back with a bang for a smooth malty, overall sweet finish with silky South American dark chocolate, raisins, plums and red liquorice flavours present in the palate. Now we’re talking - a superb mix of sweet flavours from an Imperial Stout - very little in the way of drier roast notes present! So easy to drink despite the high ABV. This is one to look out for if you enjoy dark malty beer on the sweet side!

Slightly flat black beer with a filmy head. Sweet aroma of dried fruit. Dried fruit and malt taste. The liquorice comes through in the aftertaste. It’s nice but I couldn’t have a lot of it.
