355ml bottle from Brewdog's Online Shop (£3.80):
Black with a 0.5cm brown lacing & good retention for the abv. The head even looks slightly creamy.
Medium roasted malts with sweetness & chocolate as well. Coffee, dark, ripe fruits & a dark malt bitterness come through with a few hops. Nice, complex with a good balance & most of the alcohol hidden.
Coffee & a chocolate sweetness. Strong dark malts taste very faint alcohol. Dark fruit start & some hops plus some good roasted flavours.
Smooth, creamy with the alcohol pretty well hidden. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Easy to drink, frighteningly so with some bitterness & a dry finish.
A good imperial stout with a pleasantly sweet taste & a good combination of chocolate &coffee initially. The hops were a great addition & it proved easier to drink than a 9% abv. beer should have done with the alcohol well hidden for the most part. Great stuff this one.
