12oz. Bottle to shaker, this feels like an old friend I haven’t seen in a while came back into town. Pours pitch black with a finger and half of light brown head. Aromas of roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and sweet malt, really classic stout nose. Perfect levels of carbonation create a medium mouthfeel that finishes quite smoothly. Overall sweet on the palate with enough roast to balance it out. Finishes malty and lingers on for just the right amount of time. Great beer, I don’t know its imperial by my jacked-up American standards but its damn good and that’s all that matters. Cheers to the Yorkshire squares!
Bottle @home. Pours black tan head. Nose is malty, chocolate, coffee with some slight licorice. Taste is along the same lines with a big overarching chocolate flavour also some soy. midovark (970) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2017
0.355 l bottle from Beerlovers, Vienna. Pours black colour with huge, everlasting beige head. Slight cocoa, some roasted malts and coffee in aroma. The same notes appear in taste, with creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation and medium body. Leaves traces of chocolate and cocoa that last medium. Altogether not bad, but too light and easy. bonev (790) - POLAND - JUL 20, 2017
Czarne z mala iloscia piany, niezbyt intensywny aromat kakao i kawy, dosc slodkie. Malo ciala i lekko palona goryczka, wysycenie na odpowiednim poziomie. Smakuje raczej jak Porter i nic nie urywa. ruigo (3073) - PORTUGAL - JUL 19, 2017

Had wat dikker gemogen. Wel lekker. Geroosterd, bbq, koffie. Goed bittere nasmaak. Davros IX (382) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2017
Very little head, but a nice lacing around the edge of the glass. A beautiful colour and what I can only describe as a heady aroma of toasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate when I stuck my nose in the top. The flavour was much the same, but muted, which was probably because I poured it too cold, alongside a hefty kick of alcohol. As it warmed those flavours developed. A very nice mouthfeel from all of the malt. A very good, solid, imperial stout with a fantastic aroma. Pat90 (13) - ITALY - JUL 3, 2017
Classica imperial stout in stile inglese. Colore profondo scuro. Schiuma tipica delle stout profondo odore di cioccolato che accompagna tutta la bevuta come l amaro. Torrefacto (1677) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 30, 2017

Bottle at Peter gift. Black with big brown head. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, vanilla, some roasted malts and some dark berries. Taste pretty much the same as aroma. Texture a bit thin.
