Theydon_Bois (18701) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Cask at Craft Beer Islington, 06/03/13. Listed as 9% - wrong clip, clarify. Very dark mahogony brown with a good sized bubbly beige head that retains well right through until finishing. Nose is roast malt, burnt sugar, woody tones, light chocolate, toffee. Taste follows the nose, touch of booze, treacle toffee, vanilla, chocolate, touch of spice. Full end of medium bodied, fine carbonation, smooth on the palate, goes down a treat. Very easy drinking, top stuff!

sebletitje (9910) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2012
Cask @ ACBF 2012, Moen. Brune fonce, col lger disparaissant vite sur qcq bulles beiges. Arme est faible laissant peu de prsence du chne, un malt grill et caramel est plus prsent. En bouche, Lgrement bois, malt grill/chocolat avec en retrait une pointe de houblon citronn. Fini est bois et sec. Carbonation est minimale et reste lger pour une Imp Stout, dommage que le traitement en ch^ne franais ne soit pas plus prsent.

teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 13, 2013
Cask at CBC Islington, London. Base Sint Petersburg + boldness + cocoa nibs+ booze. Fullier in body and definitely more interesting than the base version. Enjoyable.
