Had on tap. Has pronounced coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malt notes. There is a milk chocolate sweetness on finish along with a cake like taste. Smell is boozier than taste. Decent thickness to creamy body.

I'm drinking the 2016 bottling, 20th anniversary edition, which has the 6.5% abv... Malts used: Pale, Black, and Crystal, with flaked and roasted barley. Hops used: Galena, Nugget, and East Kent Goldings.

Brown-black pour is thoroughly black in the glass, under a fat dark foam head a coupla fingers high in my nonic pint. Aromas and flavors are rich, suggesting dark-roasted coffee, roasted bittersweet chocolate, and a mild molasses sweetness that adds some stickiness before a drying finish. Sweetness is very mild, bitterness forward and roasty. The feel is light-ish-bodied and creamy - super-smooth, with a plush, soft body.

A beer style I don't visit often, I could easily drink a bunch of these. Absolutely delightful. I'm assuming the "15 04 18" on the side is a best by dating of April 15th, 2018... If this beer tasted better than this fresh, it musta been a game-changer. Don't hesitate to grab a bottle if you spot it this winter...

From elcervecero. In Teku glass. Playing Magic 2015. Low ABV but still full of taste and aroma. Great balance between roastyness, sweetness and bitterness with some spicyness too. At the end of the glass yeast seem to concentrate spoiling the last 2 sips though

33cl bottle recently acquired from a Dublin off licence. BBD of Dec 2016. With abv of 7.5 and last reviews in 2013 this may be a new reincarnation. One of most enjoyable imperial stouts I have tasted.
