This is in the style of a traditional imperial Russian stout, but at a lower-than-usual strength. It has a deep, rich and burnt flavour which complements the biscuity malt character, balanced by large quantities of hops

johndoughty (5190) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle. Black with a small head.Malty quite robust flavour with a medium body. Not really enough power to be classed as an Imperial Stout. More like a porter. reasonable but could be better.

Hanoi (906) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2016
Bottle. Marked as call aged for six months, which is aliased here. Nose is very muted, light licorice, blackcurrant. Taste is fruity, licorice, barrel faint roast. Mouthfeel is painfully thin. This is a porter in profile and is the worst imperial stout Ive ever had. Much better reviewed below on cask, which Id be willing to try but this is poor in the bottle.

330ml bottle. Pours black with a thin head. Aroma is roast, blackcurrant lozenges and a little vanilla. Taste has chocolate to start with a soft wood finish. A little coffee.

Towey1989 (2224) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, fudge, some roasted malts, slight caramel and subtle smoke. Taste of chocolate, fudge, some roasted malts, slight caramel, a little raisin, subtle liquorice and spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, roasted, chocolatey bitterness in the finish. A flavourful, chocolatey, fudge flavoured stout. Subtle fruit breaks the malty, fudginess of the beer. A great titanic beer.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 31 March 2014. Poured black with a dense, tan head. Aroma of smoked malt, leather and that slightly fishy edge, that stouts sometimes get (just me?). Burnt malt flavours, with dark chocolate and assertive, bitter hops. Full, thick mouth feel. Finish was bitter, burnt toast, dark fruit and spice. Beer of the JDW Festival, for me.
