Fremantle brewing maestros, Sail & Anchor, have released a limited edition Imperial Stout just in time for the cooler months - the perfect winter warmer. The Stout itself is characterised by a strong malt character and a deep, palate covering caramel sweetness which plays ever brilliantly well with the hop bitterness which come in at 60 IBUs. Notes of espresso coffee and dark chocolate finish off this dark and refreshing Imperial Stout that is a perfect match for a dark chocolate dessert or an open fire.

Little surprised with this one, wasnt expecting much at all. Alcohol hidden well, coffee, chocolate, some liquorice with lingering bitterness. Lacked the smoothness and the robust flavours of a very good RIS but still not a bad brew.

Cantabrian (1083) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 20, 2013
Nice and black, but with no respectable head. Grand marnier, chocolates and herbal bitter on the aroma and flavour, with green tea, citrus and charred bitterness, coffee, and very thin body. More like a watery "Black India Ale" than a RIS.

Great stout, creamy head, pours dark black. Tastes of chocolate, sultanas, coffee and umps. Lingers long on the palette with a slightly bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (1733) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2013
Poured an opaque black colour with a one-finger beige coloured foamy head that collapsed quickly and laced poorly. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt without any detectable alcohol. Taste dominated by mildly bitter roasted malts and a bit of sweetness not as sweet as Id expect from a 9.5% ABV. Light to medium body. Smooth but with a moderately bitter finish. Quite nice.

DeliriumT (529) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2013
Pours jet black with a slight opaque hue. This beer smells like a mash tun mid sparge. The flavor is also very mash tun-esque, but very robust. Medium body and very dry. Misses the smooth velvety flavours you'd expect from a really good RIS. Still a very enjoyable beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2013
Black with a thin scummy tan head, roasted aromas, hints of fruit. Flavours of dark roasted and toasted malts, coffee and dark bitter chocolate, caramelized fruit. Well balanced, thinish mouthfeel and finishes on the dry side. not bad.

Black pour with a thin but persistent tan head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, slightly roasted malt. Flavour is black coffee, slightly sweet, dark chocolate. Pretty good!
