50 cl bottle from systembolaget bs. Pours near dark with sweet aroma. heathery flavour with sweet honey aftertaste. Garrold (5269) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Been in the cellar about two years. Just about black. Thick, lasting, tan head. Smoke. Cocoa. Dried vine fruits. Heather honey. Taste is cocoa sweet. Boozy, dark fruit dryness. Roast bitterness at the end. Earlier, the Missus said she fancied something, "Imperial, sweet, thick". This is what she got. Did she approve? "It’s alright", She said. I liked it, though...

Very rich, full but above all balanced IRS. Good roast, nice sweet chocolate and fruit of the forest notes. Comes together very nicely. tony_gorilla (159) - Drammen, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at Christians kjeller. Good beer but not enough honey for my taste. Could at much more. jamesie1857 (2150) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
500ml bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop - Deep thick black body, thick tan head. Luxurious nose of honey hits you straight away (and I’m not a fan) coupled with a smoky tobacco and roasted coffee aroma. A rich bitter chocolate and liquorice taste follows, with a slight hint of burnt gorse. Only let down is it is a little bit thin in the mouth, but that’s a small price to pay. Excellent boozy stout.

500ml bottle from appellation wines. Pours near black with a thin tan head. Strange aromas, starting plastic and Elastoplast, moving in to eucalyptus, menthol, them settling at heather. Taste brought chocolate, coffee bitterness and vinous notes. Long rich finish. Intriguing. leaparsons (10546) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Near black with a firm beige head. Aromas are nutty roast coffee with marzipan and blackberries, Toasted with heather, hedgerow and pepper. Dark chocolate and cherry with oak barrel and xmas pudding. Flavours are coffee and dark chocolate bitterness with grapefruit. Cherry liquor with lemony yeast and a dry woodiness. Pithy and peppery with dry red wine notes and a boozy finish with hints of metal. Earthy with spicy oak barrel and marzipan. Good but just a little disappointing for the price.
