Bottle. Black with a medium head. Chocolate and coffee merge to create a wonderful flavour/ Gently sweet and full bodied yet not overpowering. Dangerously easy to drink.Highly recommended.

A 330ml bottle with a best before date that is not legible anymore but is sometime in 2018. Poured into a snifter. It was black in colour with pretty much no head and only sparse spotty lacing. Aromas of sweetish milk chocolate, coffee, cocoa and vanilla. Tastes sweet, light dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate, cocoa, espresso. coffee, cream and hints of vanilla. Creamy, smooth, medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Overall nice and easy to drink. Doesn’t feel like 11% abv at all.

Perfectly hopped and a lovely thick head. Aroma is mocha and cooking bread. Palate gives milk chocolate and vanilla ice cream. Amazing mouth feel that could only be a little fuller. The carbonation chase lasts several seconds. The carbonation is so perfectly suited to this beer you barely notice it. This is a near flawless stout that I'd recommend to any imp lover.

sam_uk93 (44) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Pours deep black with a hint of red. Small head that disappears fast. Nice sweet aroma, alcohol, coffee, slight fruitiness. Great sweet vanilla coffee upfront, leading to a kick of alcohol warmth and ending with a nice sweet coffee vanilla finish, slight cherry and plum in the aftertaste also. Absolutely fantastic full bodied, thick mouthfeel, probably the best I've had in terms of mouthfeel! Medium to low carbonation. Absolutely cracking imperial stout!

Muggus69 (2723) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2017
330mL bottle from Carwyn Cellars Deepest of ruby hues, pours opaque, ring of dark tan cream. Dark aromas - molasses, roast nuts, burnt toast, touch of vanilla, black coffee. Big smooth body, not much in way of rough edges, booze sneaks through very easily. Rather big burnt/dark sugar component here - treacle, molasses, burnt nuts, sweetened coffee, vanillin & spice notes emerge, savoury finish with a reasonable bitterness. Big, maybe not as roasty as I was hoping for an Imperial stout.

16/20 extremely smooth imperial stout, with a long lingering coffee and chocolate taste with a nice sweetness from the vanilla.

4.2
tricksta_p (5119) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2017
Bottle at Café Derat, Utrecht. Aroma is lots of coffee, espresso, chocolate, sweet vanilla beans, dessert notes, roasted malt. Flavour is quite sweet with a roasty bitterness. Body is full. Rich one with lots of coffee and dessert notes. Lovely coffee dessert Stout.
