My wife got a bottle for me on a work trip, she is great.

Poured into my specialty pint glass. The beer is dark, black with a think very dark head very pretty beer.

The nose was apparent from the moment I popped the top, dark chocolate, slight roasted with chocolate being dominate. The nose is classic imperial stout but a little more aromatic.

The flavor is initially full of dark chocolate, with hints of dark fruits. there is a slight off flavor, mainly bitterness that is left on the tongue as it drys. I very much like the complexity of this beer, however the slight bitterness is a little odd.

Overall a great beer, great with the steak I grilled.

The problem with this beer isn't that its a good beer - it is actually quite good, the problem is that there are many other, cheaper beers that do it a lot better. This one was a pretty steep price to pay for a good, dark, strong ABV oatmeal stout but in comparison to Sam Smith's, Rouge or Wolavers Oatmeal Stouts they all do it a lot better and Wolavers and Sam Smiths do it for a reduced price.
