COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich and chocolatey A proper imperial stout brewed with chocolate & caramel malts, and dark roasted barley. The flavour is immediately rich and chocolatey, giving way to espresso notes. It finishes with a great waft of citrus from a generous blend of our favourite hops.

Zarrach76 (343) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 30, 2017
Bouteille à 7 mois avant sa date, versée brune tirant sur le noir, opaque, avec une mousse dense carrément marron, rappelant un peu la St-Ambroise de McAuslan... Le nez est fort intéressant en ceci qu’il est une combinaison assez réussie entre un Stout et une IPA avec de très belles notes d’agrumes (citron, pamplemousse). On retrouve avec bonheur le cacao, le café, le caramel légèrement brûlé, le marron, le pain d’épice, le pain noir, du pruneau, de la noisette, un peu de mûre et de pêche de vigne... Quelle élégance et quelle fraicheur ! La bouche est d’une richesse incroyable en terme en corps, on dirait vraiment qu’on mange plus qu’on ne boit cette bière à l’instar d’une Guinness (en plus épais encore, c’est dire...) ! L’alcool est au niveau de ses 6%, sans trop de force non plus, l’amertume est légère mais longue et parfaitement équilibrée, les levures sont douces, la texture veloutée. Les malts torréfiés sont délicieux, les sucres résiduels jamais écœurants avec une belle douceur, le final est sur l’amertume avec ses agrumes en fond de bouche exclusivement et ces superbes notes cacao/café sur le pourtour. Ce Stout n’est pas d’une grand complexité mais d’un équilibre et d’une texture superbes ! Un alcool plus costaud avec des esters plus expressifs et on avait un Imperial Stout de très haute volée ! Mais ici, nous nous contenterons de ce que le Stout peut nous offrir de meilleur, rien que ça... Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A black beer that pours with a thick brown head. It has very rich chocolate and liquorice flavours with spicy American red fruity and citrus hops and coffee on the finish. Superb!

Beese (3296) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle at the Old Red Cow, London on 21 September 2012. Poured a thick black colour with a large, dense tan head. Looked beautiful! Full aroma of dark chocolate, liquorice and roasted malt. Fantastic thick, creamy mouth feel. Flavours of coffee, dark fruits and ash. Citrus and pine hoppy flavours then come into the mix and the palate is a wonderful balance of the hops and roasted malt.

As far as I can tell, this only comes bottled. Tried with Paul at a restaurant off Brick Lane on Guy Fawkes day, 2011. Roasted malts, chocolate predominating, leads the assault on your senses. There is a counter attack at the edge spearheaded by hops, a subtle pine needley afterburn.

jamestulloch (4417) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2015 Keg at Andrew Usher’s. Black body with a dense tan head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and licquorice. Flavour of roasted malt, coffee, berries and chocolate. Medium body with a creamy texture. Soft fizz. Beautifully balanced - a luscious, tasty beer. A Redchurch Stout is a wonderful thing.
