Huge imperial Stout, heavy smoked chocolate caramel, starting sweet with slightly heavier carbonation, turning to slightly roasty coffee with little bitterness. 13.2% ABV? Not very detectable. Lovely Stour, high on my list.

750ml from Elise shared at a tasting. Deep viscous licorice Imperial Stout. Heavy, but kind of straightforward. Gets more monstrous as you sip at it. Heavy molasses tones. intense.

Tap tonight at Cask and Vine for the distributor showdown. Blacker than a quad should be. Rich fruit some roasty malt and subtle oaky bourbon notes. Very stout like but very tasty.

Wow what an amazing beer! Flavor is easy to judge and is a smoky chocolate with an amazingly smooth aftertaste.
