Bottle, Tabamatu the legend, shared at Kernel. A really thick and full-bodied RIS beast. Lots of cedar and chocoloate and excellent barrel-aging. It has thinned out a little but hell its awesome. I want to try Portsouth Brewing Kate The Great but thatll be hard! The malt work is mastery. Sheer brilliance again.

Bottle shared by Buckeyeboy, thank you! Dark brown color, near black, with a thin ring of creamy tan head. Roasty and sweet aroma, dark fruits, smoke, and chocolate. Very sweet taste accented with faint smoke and little bits of dark fruit. Layers of flavor. Very rich. Delicious.

KAB no. 42. I believe Harrisoni bought this for me a couple of years ago whilst we were on a stag-do in Bruges. Anyway, pours lovely like. Deep cream coffee red head that settles to a patchy creme brulee. Great in the mouth - nice and soft. Flavours are subtle and powerful at the same time. Lots of blackjack sweets flavours and the big vinous hit of an imperial stout (with the body of a porter). Really good stuff.
